Description:

This book is a warm hug for mothers. Motherhood is a personal journey of self-discovery. A mix of feeling delight and wonder, to challenged and overwhelmed – often, all in one day! FLOURISH for Mums is your perfect companion to cultivate 21 healthy ways to let go of unrealistic expectations and create space to celebrate your unique parenting pathway. Filled with uplifting anecdotes and supportive strategies, while busting big misconceptions – this is personal, yet universal in its strong, yet gentle messages. Handbag friendly and always ready to provide a dose of inspiration. Dear mum, it’s time to relax – replenish – FLOURISH.

My View:

There is so much “real” in this book. So much that resonates. It is promoted as a book for new mums but I think this book has a much bigger audience; it’s a book we can all find something to take with us on our life’s journey.  A book for life.

“If I had to summarise the experience of self-forgiveness; it would look a little like this:

SELF-FORGIVENESS

= Self -Awareness

  = Acknowledgement

     = Self- kindness

     = Openness to listening

        = Learning

           = Acceptance

              = Owning

                  = New space for personal growth

  1. I really like the fact of letting go of those myths of what motherhood is ‘supposed to’ be .’ And self-care is really important, because there’s no job that’s more demanding, in its way, than motherhood. Thanks for sharing, Carol.

  2. Carol, i am so deeply grateful for your authentic review and reflections on Flourish for Mums. Since its launch; there has been such incredible feedback on the healing and inspiration it is facilitating across a diverse range of motherhood stages and contexts; and i agree with you; it is certainly a “book for life”.
    Many thanks for being part of the mission to help mums thrive and flourish throughout the world…!
