Inspirations from afar...

So I saw this article today and I thought it was perfect and of course, I had to share it here! While to me being not just mum means being not just a mum, and being more than that in the sense of recognising who I am as an individual, I am also more than just a mum in the sense that being a full-time mum shouldn't be described as being ONLY a mum.If someone was to say to me, "oh but that person is JUST a cleaner, what do they do all day?" I would not be impressed, and I would hope you would react similarly. No one is JUST anything. Everyone is important, every detail of a life is, or should be important to someone, at least that is the way I would like for the world to go around! No one is JUST...

As Matt Walsh (from the MattWalshBlog) writes :

Yes, my wife is JUST a mother. JUST. She JUST brings forth life into the universe, and she JUST shapes and molds and raises those lives. She JUST manages, directs and maintains the workings of the household, while caring for children who JUST rely on her for everything. She JUST teaches our twins how to be human beings, and, as they grow, she will JUST train them in all things, from morals, to manners, to the ABC’s, to hygiene, etc. She is JUST my spiritual foundation and the rock on which our family is built. She is JUST everything to everyone. And society would JUST fall apart at the seams if she, and her fellow moms, failed in any of the tasks I outlined.

LOVE, totally LOVE!!! 

My challenge, don't let anyone you meet in the day feel like they are JUST anything...

Have fun! 

love, Jess xx
