Motherhood is difficult, exhausting, messy, yet it is oh so beautiful. When I first became a mother I was young and afraid, but with surrounded by inspirational women. With Mother’s Day around the corner I have partnered up with Hefty® to celebrate the strength of mothers everywhere and share with you the qualities of other mothers that have inspired me. It is thanks to all those beautiful and strong women that I became the mother I am today.
If there is one thing we know is a mother’s ability to love our children no matter what. All my surrounding mothers have shown nothing but love for not only their children but the children of others. Let’s face it- even when your kids have been screaming all day and you are counting down the time for it to be socially acceptable to have some wine-you still love them!
Patience is something I have had to learn. I learned it watching how the mothers around me understood that kids were just kids. As mothers we are patient always; when we ask them to do something for the 50th time, when we are waiting for them to finish their food, when we are potty training, when we are asking them to clean up a mess. We just have to be patient.
Determination means “firmness of purpose”. What I mean here is our determination. Whether it be to be determined to get that load of laundry done, or the determination to make sure you take a decent shower, or if like me you want to create your own brand and company. Determination is what keeps us firm toward our purpose.
Ambition does not have to be a bad thing. As a mother of two, stay at home mom, work at home mom, student, and bride I have many ambitions. They range from getting my homework done to teaching Lia to keep her clothes on. Your ambitions are your hopes and dreams for yourself and for your family. Let those ambitions drive you.
5.Support & humility
If there is one thing I love about the mother community is the amount of love everyone has for one another. There is an understanding between us all that mothering is incredible difficult and we do what we can. We all have those days that we feel are total mom fails and there are days where we go to bed feeling like we rocked it! Either way we know tomorrow can be completely different so we share what works and what didn’t and we count our blessings.
You are probably wondering where I’m going with this. What do Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags and mothers have in common? Mothers are no doubt in my mind the strongest people in the world. Mothers have not just an unparalleled physical strength, they have the strongest hearts I know, and are the smartest out there. Our decisions are tactical, and our reasoning is driven by logic and heart. Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags are similar to today’s moms because they too are Ultra Strong in everything they do. With their Triple Action Technology these bags are made to resist holes, tears, punctures, and leaks.
Not only do I love the strength of Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags, I love their price! Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags offer “Hefty Hefty Hefty” strength at a low price, and they celebrate strong moms like John Cena’s mom Carol. With Hefty® you are getting a product as strong as you. You are getting a product that can handle the mess as well as only a mother can do!
I would love to learn some of your favorite qualities in mothers! Go ahead leave them in the comments.
