Today is my mother’s 77th birthday. Her journey has been filled with resilience, unwavering determination, and an unyielding commitment to keep taking the next right steps despite hard circumstances. From her, I learned invaluable lessons about success and self-care.
As I reflect on her life, I’m reminded of the importance of nurturing both success and self-care to thrive. Her upcoming trip abroad with her friends is a testament to her zest for life and her belief in the power of adventure. It exemplifies how we, as high performing women, need to take time to replenish our spirits and prioritize self-care amidst our busy lives.
Another invaluable lessons I’ve learned from my mother is the significance of taking care of our bodies. She has always paid meticulous attention to what she eats and drinks, ensuring that her body receives the nourishment it needs to stay healthy and strong. This practice has deeply influenced me. Indeed, to perform at our best, we must nourish our bodies and minds.
Another quality I admire in my mother is her curiosity and eagerness to learn. Even at her age, she continues to seek new knowledge. Her thirst for learning has shown me that success isn’t merely about achieving milestones. It’s about embracing lifelong growth. As high performing women, it would serve us well to foster the same hunger for growth to stay relevant in this volatile world.
This birthday is a bittersweet moment, as it marks the first one without my late dad. Yet, it is also a joy and blessing to celebrate her resilience, strength, and wisdom. Her journey serves as a powerful reminder to find ways to embrace both the joys and challenges that life presents. It is definitely a delicate dance, but one that can lead to a fulfilling and purposeful life.
