No one likes being sick, yet Mom always finds a way to turn this rough situation into a special feeling. Mothers have a way of taking care of you physically and emotionally when you’re sick. Even if you’re no longer a child, Mom loves you like a baby every time she takes care of you. We all have to admit, it feels amazing to be pampered by her. She is the original urgent care!

Don’t listen to the doubts. To the voices telling you that you don’t measure up, that you don’t matter, that nothing will ever change, that what you’re doing day after day after day won’t make a difference.
Those aren’t truth statements—they are subtle fallacies that keep you and me stuck and withhold the ability to see the amazing tenacity tucked within.
