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.
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.
