Are you constantly doing for others? Do you feel exhausted and overwhelmed, but still spend what little energy you have on others? Do you feel  guilty saying no and taking time for yourself?

Inspirational author, Michelle Sedas joined Mom of Many Hats Radio to share her inspiration and experience resulted in her beautiful book Live Inspired.  We discussed how you can stretch your mind, gladden your heart, and nourish your soul. Taking the time to feed our own spirits makes us better able to feed the spirits of those we love.

As moms, and as women, we often give and give until we have nothing left to give.  It is so easy for us to get into the cycle of pouring out of the pitcher, but not taking the time to fill it up.  We love our children and want to do for them, exist for them, and give them our all.  But at the end of the day, if we try to pour from an empty pitcher, everyone ends up thirsty.

Michelle shared pearls of wisdom that she has learned and clung to in her own journey as a woman and as a mother.  These things have helped her to  live inspired everyday. Michelle gave these inspiring gems to our listeners to help them refill, refresh, and live inspired too:

  • If we stay busy, we feel we are doing right. We need to slow down and drink in the moments.
  • Women that know the importance of self-care are the women that shine. We need to take care of ourselves.
  • We only have one life to live.  This is it, so, act now!
  • There is nothing in life that at some point can’t be laughed at.
  • Get in touch with what sets you on fire.
  • Mix it up!

February 14th is just around the corner…

It’s the day we celebrate LOVE!

For a sweet heart, we send candy, flowers, a romantic note, make  a special dinner to espress our love. Billions of candy hearts with little sayings that fly about in this second week of February with expressions of love and desire give sentiments of sweetness and romance.  Love is in the air, on our minds and in the store.  It is a potpourri of chocolate, love notes, longings and affection.

But how do we express our love to our kids? How do we define it? Can we define it?

On this special day of love, we give them little love notes made of hearts with x’s and o’s.  As parents we purchase their Valentines day cards, help them decorate their Valentine party mailbox, and send them off with sweets for their friends.  We even send our share of those billions of candy hearts – which, by the way, I contend we should sort through before sending them with the little ones (have you seen some of those sayings?) Do we save our expression of love for one day in February?

Of course we love our children; that is what we DO as parents. But we can’t really define what that means.  We can find other adjectives that describe it, but LOVE can’t really be contained and pinned down.  It doesn’t really stand as an adjective, and not really a noun.  It’s more of a verb – an action word, an expression. Love is action that we take every day in the raising of our children.  It is in boundaries and limits, fostering creativity, knowing where they are, letting them fail, and loving them through it.  Love is an active thing that we do AND say. Our children may not always like the actions that show we love them at the moment, but they will look back and know they were loved.  The

Listen to today’s full broadcast as Angie Mozilo, Mom of Many Hats shares what she has learned in her journey in parenthood, about actively loving her children every day.  She dedicates this episode to her three beautiful daughters whom she loves unceasingly, whether it is Valentine’s day or not.
