I love Marianne's work and I believe in her words above.
I struggled for quite a time, to find my way as a mom. Or better "a way"? It began with me. Within myself. From a crystal clear reality check over who I am today to who I wish to become I understood the best way to be a mom is to be the best version of myself. Today. Tomorrow. Though tomorrow it'll feel different. But it's still me. Honest. Human. Responsible.
Raising my son has more and more become forming a relation with myself and not with my representative, forming a relation with him and between us, so it may help him to build one with him self. Strong and sold based on love, and always always with room for learning.
The shot of me below took my son after a late summer day 2016 on our fav beach. He was three years old and showed me how he sees me through his eyes.
