For YOU, Mami Fashion

5 Short Mantras for Moms

January 3, 2017






Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday! If you were off from work, I hope you are rested and ready to take on 2017! I am! I watched Rogue One with my boys over the break and I can’t get Chirrut’s mantra, “I am one with the Force. The Force is with me.” out of my head! I was so pumped after the movie and love the idea of mantras so I thought, “What mantra would be good to start 2017? Short ones so I can remember! Because we’re all so busy!

Whether you would like to apply your mantra in your work or business, while trying to obtain personal goals, or even for those fashion and style hurdles you need to get through (the outfit pictured above was also an inpiration for this post). Pick one. Or all! And you know when it’s super important to say your mantra over and over? You know those mom moments when you need to breathe, get centered and not throw something? Yeah, I thought so. Repeat after me:

“Be daring.” Take the plunge. What have you been waiting for? Here’s another year and 365 new chances. Get started.

“Rise higher.” This goes for heels or attitude. It’s your runway. Strut your way out of negativity, gossip and shake off that 2016 funk.

“Be the change.” Do some social good. Another fantastic quote/mantra I can’t get out of my head: “If you stand for nothing, what’ll you fall for?” Pick something you are passionate about and volunteer. You can do something as easy as sharing a Facebook post or Tweet to donating your time for a great cause.

“Be confident.” You are parenting just fine. You didn’t say the wrong thing to your friend. Your presentation is on point. That top looks fabulous on you! Believe in yourself this 2017 and see yourself shine through.

“Be powerful.” Your goodnight kisses are powerful. Your nagging is powerful. Being patient is powerful. Your lessons are powerful. Your body is powerful. Your mind is powerful. Your love is powerful.

Feel free to add your own short mantras in the comments below! Cheers to a great new year!

    Beautifully summed them up. I would add Be Present. With so much technology at our reach it is so easy to be distracted at times when we should be enjoying the moment that we are living in.
