A few days after my son Luke was born, I walked through the city and for the first time I saw all the other moms in a completely different light. I had such a high respect for them and I remember that I thought:
"OMG, she did it. And she did it, too. Wow! All these women look so normal but they are actually superheroes."
Unfortunately, I noticed soon that nobody treats us moms like superheroes at all.
I mean, what's going on? Society rather builds monuments for people who went to war to kill others then for those who actually create new life. Isn't that absurd?
And because we moms seem to forget ourselves how awesome we are, here is a little reminder that nothing and nobody should ever hold you back from expressing your deepest desires - even if and especially because you are a mom.
I'm proudly presenting...
1. EVERY SUPERHERO MOM DESERVES TIME FOR HER PASSION
You're doing more then a full time job already. You have the right to take some time to follow your dreams. But please, don't play Farmville instead :-).
2. SUPERHERO MOMS HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO ON A VACATION ON THEIR OWN
Yes, you deserve time for yourself and you're not a bad mother if you don't see your children for a couple of weeks. Period.
3. SUPERHERO MOMS HAVE EVERY SKILL TO CREATE THEIR OWN BUSINESS
Being a mom means that you are creative, innovative, tough and that you have a great time management already. These are the most important skills a good entrepreneur needs. So if you don't wanna go back to your shitty job, just create your own business and do what you love!
4. SUPERHERO MOMS HAVE THE RIGHT TO NEVER FEEL GUILTY TO WANT A LIFE BESIDE THE MOM JOB
5. SUPERHERO MOMS ARE STILL HUMAN
Only because you are doing a great job, doesn't mean, everybody can always, always, always count on you.
6. SUPERHERO MOMS HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TREATED LIKE SUPERHEROES
Guys, honestly! Get it together! This woman gave the most precious gift to you ever! Treat her like a famous rockstar including massages, compliments, flowers and lots of attention, which means: Listen to her!
7. SUPERHERO MOMS CAN CHANGE THEIR LIFE COMPLETELY
You can be whoever you want to be, no matter how many children you have and yes, if you really want to, you will make time for this change. Never forget: You are amazing!
And now jump in your suit and ignite your SUPERPOWERS!
So much Love,
P.S.: Not everybody is a mom, but everybody has one. Don't wait for Mother's Day to tell her how much you love her! I certainly do!
