What Moms Need! #OlioHop 3

What Moms Need!

What do woman want? We want to feel beautiful, loved, cherished, strong and confident. We want to surround ourselves with positive people and things. We love beautiful things and enjoy conversations about the things we love in life. We all strive to meet that person we can share these things with. We strive to find a career where we feel successful, passionate, help others and have a sense of pride and accomplishment.

In that journey to find the things we love and to do what we truly love, we need time to reflect. We need a space to find solace, peace, and serenity. A place that envelopes us, has elements of our favorite things, colors and includes the beauty we seek in life.

To me, life is about these things. Making sure I have the right support system of people that I love and love me back. Also, it’s important for me to learn every day. Learn something new about the world, my children, my career or how to help others. In order to do these things, I’ve learned that I have to look inward and find my inner peace. All mothers have the toughest job, raising children who are good people. The pressure is overwhelming at times. It’s stressful and hectic as we try to juggle taking care of them, our significant others, our career and the few minutes we have to take of ourselves. We all need a Mom Retreat within our homes. A space we can run away too or a place to reflect, to read, to learn and be the best person we can be.

STEP 1: CHUCK THE CHAOS: Make sure everything in your Office is relevant.

I’m sure there are random trophies, old textbooks from college, unfinished projects and old product samples; you think you’ll one day need. NEWS FLASH: chuck it!! It’s liberating and just cluttering up your life. Move on and make space for more relevant and new fresh décor items or the latest Apple gadget!
