My Mum is rather splendid she is always telling me to “Make The Commitment To The Real You”.
I can count on her to pick me up when I am down, support me when I am busy and help me to land after flying high. Today in the UK it is Mother’s Day I want to thank her for being so special and to share with you some of the guidance that I am lucky enough to receive from her every day 🙂
This year I have had the opportunity to make decisions about my training and consider my options at each crossroads that I have encountered. It has been one of my busiest years so far with so much still to do, building towards a climatic end of year. But I know that I would not be able to stand on my two feet so confidently, smiling and excited for the tasks ahead without the amazing help of my Mum.
There are many times when each of us needs the help of others, they help us to trust in ourselves and commit to the journey we are each on. At times when we question our abilities it is important to ask, or receive help through positive encouragement whether this is through reading inspirational quotes, listening to suggested Ted Talks, watching motivational videos or films about American sports stars (my dad’s personal favourite ). But for me I have my mum. She has always had my back and gives me strength daily to strive to be the person I want to be.
I remember talking to her about the changes to the development of my personal singing training and the frustrations I felt. My mum asked me to research the growth of a bamboo tree, and she sent me this amazing video:
If you can then I recommend that you to watch it in its entirety, or save it for a day when you need a little positive nudge. For me, it reminds me that I have the power to fulfil my dream. If I take the time now then over the next several years I can nurture myself, train hard to enable me to grow and flourish. It takes patience and persistence. I am up for the challenge and I thank my mum every day for encouraging me to take on each challenge, supporting me to achieve my goals and always being there for me every step of my journey.
But I ask you:
‘Are you up for the challenge, to commit to the real you?’
