Being a mum is the most rewarding yet hardest roles in our lives. As a mum I give my children endless love, devotion, encouragement and guidance.
Jada Pinkett-Smith was recently asked by her daughter Willow “How hard is it being a wife and a mother?”. I truly love Jada’s answer, how she explains it is nothing short of perfection, so honest and real. This is a must watch, 6 minutes not wasted.
I shared this on my facebook page yesterday, but wanted to publish it on the blog, so when your struggling you can easily find this clip and watch it to remind you, that YOU NEED TO TAKE CARE OF YOU FIRST.
“Being a wife and a mother is probably one of the most extraordinary experiences, and the most fulfilling experiences in my life. But at the same time, it has been very difficult to balance the things that I want to do and have the freedoms that I want to have and also being responsible for you, and your brothers and your father. And I’m constantly, every day, trying to figure out that balance,” she said.
Jada said she struggles every day to find a balance between helping her children accomplish their dreams, helping her husband accomplish his dreams and trying to figure out hers.
She continues to say that if mothers don’t take care of themselves, they may make their children or their spouses responsible for their happiness.
Jada mentioned she has seen a change in her own household when she put herself first. While she was happier, she noticed that her husband and her children were happier as well.
