Okay, so I'm cheating a little...I used to read a blog called "Mama Says Om" and I thought it was a great title. I love yoga and the pieceful meditation and discipline of focusing your mind and body. Namaste is commonly used as a closing at the end of yoga class, and basically is the essence of honoring each other and all that makes you, well, you. "The peace within me honors the peace within you." I love that!
As for the Mama part, well, we all have one in some shape or form. Whether it's a blood Mama, legal Mama, or a mother figure, we all tend to look to someone for that. My niche, my focus, is on families. I love all aspects of what family is, and know that it can also be the ultimate issue that can sabotage a life. We see situations of abuse and neglect...we see pessimism and anger toward the world, and what is the first thing a counselor goes back to? Your childhood. Your family..
So I want to use this group as a place to really look at your family life. As we grow our careers--whether it's us doing our own thing, or supporting a spouse doing an entreprenerial endeavor, it can take a toll on family life. So here is where we can bring up issues that are concerning us, ideas, fun family suggestions, etc. I'm open to what this becomes...and I know that when all is said and done, no amount of financial success can compensate for what is lacking in your home. So, let's make sure that our vocational success directly relates to our personal family success!
No matter what your age is, you can benefit from being in this group-- you may be a mama, are married to one, have a mama, or just want to know how to treat others with the utmost respect and love. The greatest thing on this earth is love, so let's collaborate to create as many loving homes as we can--going back to my own Mama's idea of "Creating a Haven of Peace in a Broken World"
