Move Forward With Mom This Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and there’s no reason you can’t tie it into your own personal growth. With this in mind, here’s how you can use May 8 to celebrate the woman who brought you into the world while also using it as momentum to keep moving forward yourself.

Make this Mother’s Day a Day Worth Remembering

Not everyone wants a “World’s Best Mom” coffee mug, so consider using this Mother’s Day to get a little creative. Whether you’re celebrating your mother, stepmother, mother-in-law, grandmother, or someone else who’s played a key role in your life, try to bring a smile to a person who truly deserves it.

While gifts and spa weekend getaways are sure to be cherished, here are a few ideas that are just as meaningful, but don’t require extravagant spending.

Lend a Helping Hand

Your mom’s been with you through thick and thin. All of that sick day support and late night homework assistance adds up. Use May 8 to return the favor by lending a helping hand, big or small. Consider a coupon book that includes vouchers for things like “Breakfast in Bed,” “One Big Hug,” or “Help with Laundry.” Printable versions are available courtesy of Skip to my Lou, or you can get crafty and make them on your own.

Be an Extra Cook in the Kitchen

“Just like mom’s cooking” is far more than an expression—it’s likely something you’ve cherished yourself. When you celebrate your mom, borrow her kitchen apron and whip up something special for her. Breakfast and bed is a tried and true favorite. If your culinary skills aren’t up to par, treat her to a nice meal or cake from a local bakery instead.

Love Her with a Handwritten Letter

When’s the last time you’ve thought—really thought—about your mom and all she’s done for you? Carve out an evening to truly cherish her by writing a heartfelt letter. Dig through shoeboxes for old photos and, with the letter, take a trip down memory lane together. Chances are she’ll be far more excited about your baby photos than you are.

Celebrating Mom + Positivity

One of the best ways to honor your mom is by staying positive and moving forward yourself. Take the time to celebrate small wins and moments, then do so with your mom. If the texts and phone calls are usually one-sided, make more of an effort to share good news with your mother—whether it’s a promotion at work or a new-found recipe.

It’s not easy to be positive and make progress consistently, but it is much better when celebrated with someone you love. If forward momentum is something you both could use a little more of, why not surprise her (and yourself) with a Blix bike? Your mom was likely there when you tackled training wheels. Now you can be there for her when she’s introduced to a new way to get outside and enjoy more living. Weekend mother-child ride, anyone?
