For many moms, raising kids becomes the primary focus of their lives. Moms place their child’s wants and needs before their own in the hopes of nurturing a loving, healthy relationship. The tendency to put themselves last is especially common with new moms. While the experience of ‘selfless motherhood’ can be rewarding, it can become psychologically and spiritually draining. Not only that, it’s simply not sustainable. Each mother has a unique blend of talents, gifts, and interests that defines who she is at the core of her being. This is the ‘soul’s essence’ and is the fullest expression of spirit, within or without the physical body.
According to Arredondo, “The soul’s essence shapes who we are, what we’re passionate about, and inspires us to live a purpose-driven life. In many instances, new moms become overwhelmed by the pressure of parenthood and lose the connection to this vital, energetic force. We become so focused on our family, that we forget who we are. This disconnect can lead to experiences of depression, stress, and anxiety. The intention of this Soul Garden Moms Journal is to help mothers reconnect with their soul’s essence. I firmly believe that moms who take care of their own needs set themselves up to be better mothers. Self-care is not a luxury, it is a necessity.”
