Mother’s Day can bring up a lot of complicated feelings — and that’s okay

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I hope you’re having the happiest spring amidst graduations, weddings, birthdays, and holidays galore. As you probably know, Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend — it’s pretty hard to forget between ads filled with flowers and the super-alluring discounts on fragrances at Sephora.

Like any holiday that celebrates someone’s life, it’s important to remember that this day can bring up a lot of complicated feelings — and that’s okay. That’s what makes us human! And sometimes, we have to find that motherly strength somewhere else, in a way that the world and media around us might fail to touch on.


No matter what your plans are for this weekend, know that you are strong and loved and free to celebrate yourself — and anyone else that makes your life brighter — however you choose.
