Mom, feeling special helps you succeed. Not only that, when you feel special your kids feel special. Feeling special will help them succeed in school!
So time for you to start feeling special yourself.
Sit in the most comfortable chair in your house. Be sure everything is quiet. Close your eyes. Take a deep breadth.
Visualize being at a fashionable spa surrounded by gardens. Listen to the splashing water from the fountains of mineral water. Experience the whirlpool, exercise in the exercise rooms, and calmly sit on the wooden benches in the sauna.Every minute of your day you’re being pampered and cared for. What a feeling! You feel special. You feel proud to be you. You feel appreciated. Take another deep breadth. Now open your eyes.
EEK! Back to reality! Now, just in case you can’t go out today, I’ve designed Mom’s Spa so that Moms anywhere and anytime can have that wonderful feeling as if they’re in a spa.
What is Mom’s Spa?Mom’s Spa is a frame of mind that makes you always feel Special, Proud and Appreciated. And, if you feel special, proud and appreciated, your child will have a greater chance to feel special, proud and appreciated.
How does this work?
As a Mom, you are your child’s number one significant other. As one of his most important significant others, you, more than anyone else, help to establish how your child feels about himself. There’s just no getting around this fact. School personnel, family, and peers have some influence on your child, but yours is the most important.
As a Mom, you are your child’s number one role model. Children have a better chance of developing high self-esteem when those closest to them, primarily their parents, demonstrate high self-esteem. After all, children learn from modeled behavior.
What you do influences your child’s character far more than what you say. If you have high self-esteem and exude confidence, you pass those traits on to your children —so your child can grow from your example and learn how to deal with life’s curveballs. High self-esteem and confidence translate into school success for your child.
What do you need to do to feel special, proud and appreciated?
First, begin by taking care of your personal needs so you can be healthy physically and mentally: eat well, get plenty of sleep, exercise, and be sure to leave some time for fun. Go to the gym, take up biking or join the book club. You could even take a course at the local college.
Secondly, think about your life long needs. Who you want to be, where you want to be in a year, in five years, in ten years? Make an appointment with a college counselor or a private career counselor. Research your interests online.
If you know what you want, do it, don’t just talk about it. If finances are a problem, look into your options. If your children are too young for you to go back to work or to school, research your options. Maybe you can take an afternoon or evening course, while your spouse, mom or friend watches your children.
Life is full of obstacles. Every successful and happy person had to overcome obstacles to get to where they are. So, you too will have to overcome obstacles to become happy and successful. Once you do though, you will spend your days feeling as if you’re always in a spa, Mom’s spa.
