This year as Mother’s Day has been approaching I have been reflecting a lot on motherhood. Wow, what a journey.
I have also made a point of no longer neglecting my own needs. I have started investing in my own health, and really working on finding a balance in my life so I no longer feel so depleted. My Mother’s Day gift to myself is renewal of self.
As a result of this reflection, I was thinking about all the other women and mother’s who also drive themselves to the point of exhaustion and burn-out. Women in general have a habit of putting everyone else’s needs before their own. This led me to another idea…
To host a Mother’s Day Retreat. I collaborated with a dear friend, also a natural health therapist, who owns a small and lovely piece of property in the country. We decided to give this day-retreat idea a try.
