Motherhood opens up a floodgate of love, but it is simultaneously overwhelming and tiring. For me, it also raised questions about who I was, where I came from, what I wanted, and how I could serve in a deeper way than I had before in my life. Balancing the day-to-day demands of raising a child with your own personal needs can be a challenge, but meditation can help. I have found it is useful to tap into a well of gratitude to cultivate peace, motivation, and empowerment. This meditation for mothers is meant to remind us of the joys of parenthood and evoke feelings that will help ground you in a place of calm and appreciation.
