March – Mothers
This year Mother’s Day was celebrated on 27th March 2022. Set as a day for honouring mothers and grandmothers for their contributions to our families, communities and society many of us will spoil them with flowers or a nice lunch out. Some of us don’t need a special day to remind us of the loving sacrifices made to nurture and sustain us on our life journeys as we happily acknowledge what our mothers have done for us on a regular basis.
However not all of us have great relationships with our mothers and make our way in life without them. This may be a way of being that we have gotten used to but it might be worth stopping and considering whether we might actually be stuck in a stagnant relationship, imprisoned by bad memories of what our mother has done to us or not done for us?
In Forgiveness, our March book of the month, legendary life coach Iyanla Vanzant challenges us to liberate ourselves from the wounds of the past. She offers a 21 day forgiveness practice that explores the relationship not only with our mothers but with every aspect of our lives. Iyanla provides help with exploring those moments when we are quick to judge and slow to pardon, with a view to creating a space for living and loving more intentionally.
Iyanla says “The practice of forgiveness is your ticket to clarity, vitality and freedom”. We at MindBody are loving anything that gives us access to those precious elements! We have several copies of this book which is lovingly written with the aim to help you live with more love for yourself and others whilst achieving a deeper sense of peace and well-being in the process. You are bound to gain some wonderful insights. Happy Reading.
