Five Things I Have Learnt From My Mum

Five Things I Learnt Have From My Mum. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing Five Things I Have Learnt From My Mum. My mum taught me much about being an ambitious woman and raising a family. I am the firstborn in my family, and although my mum is married, my dad was always working in Africa, and we only saw little of him. Therefore, my mum raised us as a ‘single mum’. I have learnt so much from her, and it was hard to pick just five things. 

Five Things I Have Learnt From My Mum

Your Family Comes First

As the woman of the house, understand that your presence matters. A place is not a home without a family. A family is not a family without a woman in the house. Women turn the house into a home. It doesn’t matter what you do; before you make any decision, think about your family.

Strength Of A Woman

Women are strong; we give up on so many opportunities that come our way to keep our families safe. Society has made it very hard to be yourself and a ‘good’ mother and wife. As a woman, you should be able to do it all. My mother finds a way to have a night out, comes home to be a wife, and a mother has a career and finds time to herself. It is hard, but as long as you and your family are well, you are doing the right thing.

Five Things I Learnt From My Mum

Love Has No Limit (Unconditional)

Your mother will always cater to you no matter how old you are. Honestly, it’s in the DNA; she can’t stop. Yes, there will be some disagreements, tears and separations, but a mother’s love never dies. There will always be a bond between mothers and their children. She only wants the best for you. If your mother does not love you, who does? Nobody will ever care for you as much as your mother does. 

Keep Your Home Safe

My mother loves her parties – I mean, who doesn’t? She loves music. She is a musical artist herself. One thing I will always admire my mother for is she keeps our home safe. Some people like visitors, hosting parties at their house – every other day, but my mother doesn’t. After a long day at school, trust me, the last thing I needed was to come home to a messy house, the living room stinking of alcohol, the music playing or someone else in the house. No matter what she does outside the house, it always stays there. Growing up was drama-free and peaceful (yet dull as a teenager). Although we had a lot of laughs, we went to parties, gossiped about people etc., what made it more special was we were all on the same page and came home to a peaceful house.


The tradition of marriage, which we all know is the man of the house goes to work and provides for his family, while the woman stays home and looks after the children, still stand. I understand women are now using their voices against men to say enough is enough – I support it, I do. However, it is essential to remember the old tradition because that is what the men would only know, and that is all they can do. Think about it, can they get pregnant and have a baby after nine months? Can they breastfeed? Can men make a house a home? Us women are more potent than them, and we only allow men to think they are more robust. 

Mum, I love you. Thank you for everything you have done.

I hope you enjoyed that.

    Such a great post. I love the keep your home safe. I’m not big into hosting so I resignate with this so much. We host all birthday parties outside our home. And I don’t think I’ll ever do it differently.

  • Doreen

    I love this post and I enjoyed reading it. Mothers are so special and I miss mine today so much! I wish I could call but she went to be with the Lord 19 years ago. She also taught me how to be a strong woman and that family comes first. We may let men think they are stronger than us but the truth is we are definitely stronger than them 😉

    I am so glad you have a good relationship with your mother. It is definitely not the case with everyone. Mothers are supposed to do all of these things, yet some of them just can’t for one reason or another. Have a Happy Mother’s Day.

    I love your most and reading through all the amazing things your mum taught you , it makes me remember my mum . Moms are special blessings and am sending my
    Love to your mum.

  • Maria Mason

    All great lessons. Reading the first lesson, I tell my family all of the time that I never make decisions with only myself in mind. Every decision that I make requires me to consider everyone in the household.

  • Lia Petersen

    I love this, I am just now finding out how much my mom has taught me over the years. Mother’s are amazing and when I was little I never wanted to be anything like my mom, now I think I would be lucky to be even a little bit like the mom she was!

  • Candice

    What a great post right before Mother’s Day. It was just my mother and me growing up and like you, I really appreciate how she made my life stable and secure. I hope my own kids feel like this about me one day.

  • Vee

    You hit the nail on the head with this one. Women in general are amazing, but there is nothing like a strong role model. Especially in today’s society, we are in need of more courageous women just like mum. Great post and just in time for Mother’s day. Thanks for sharing 😊
