There’s so much to be said about a mother’s role in a child’s life. Absolutely nothing can replace it. Her love coddles us in times of despair, rebuilds, restores and renews all that is good. It functions as the very foundation of our existence.  A famous proverb ties both themes together perfectly saying, “Mother is the first and the best teacher.” For it is through love that she imparts her greatest lessons. Keep scrolling for wise words a few loving moms would like to offer their future boss babes and thought leaders:


Trina, Baby Shopaholic | @BabyShopa

“In this media-driven world, always be yourself. As soon as you start trying to be something you think you should be, it will be hard to keep up. You’ll drive yourself crazy. It’s not worth it. Being yourself is an advantage because no one can be you.”

“Love yourself first and know your self-worth. Don’t let anyone else bring it down or make you feel less worthy. Always maintain your integrity. In the end, you have only two things: your memories and your name. And your name and reputation live on. Find your passion and give 100 percent; life is very short. You don’t have much time, so make the most of it by doing what you love and giving your all.”

“Live a life that honors God in everything you say and do.”

“Motherhood has taught me that my every step is not just watched, it’s emulated by our little ones who aspire to be what they see. My mini-me amazes me everyday with her grit, drive, intelligence and poise. The future is female and it makes me proud!”

“There will always be challenges, there will always be doubt. There will always be something to worry about. Tap into the greatness that flows within you. Remember the resilience of your ancestors before you. You are the future, the leader we need. When mothers have daughters, we’ve planted a seed. Grow. Thrive. Challenge every injustice you see. Push. Strive. Blossom into the woman you were divinely created to be.”
