Five Momtras to start Mothers Day weekend, pass ’em on (no calories)
As we begin Mothers Day weekend it seems apropos to connect you with the year’s Momtras so far.
Post-it note ’em, use and re-use* these first Five Momtras. And check back for more as we continue down the how to be a walking Momtra™ book and blog-writing journey. *operative word
They work not only to stretch your peace (a popular form of Mom happiness) but they help make it stick around for longer; longer than that hour and a half yoga class, 40 min run, series of lemon drops or half a bucket of mint chocolate chip.

More happiness is ours for the taking ~ it is. Our mind is ours to train. This is a key to unlock a more consistent happiness at any stage and age…
And now a question specifically to two readers, Janet W. and Whitney S, what are your Momtras? Then, which of the five linked above has found YOU, yes you, today? Please share below.
We’re placing bets the most timely (and light-hearted Momtra) appropriate for this particular Friday afternoon is: Bubbly / Margarita me, por favor (3x). It’s one of those double holiday weekends. Once the effect wears off, however, just remember to re-visit htbawM’s traditional monthly Momtras for that fresh, lasting feeling.

Motherhood: her truest and most consistent state of happiness is not linked to how well her kids behave, how many evenings she has a sitter or how much money she has in her account. This more consistent state of happiness is first and certifiably linked to what she tells herself.
Be a walking Momtra. Choose what you repeat wisely.
There’s only one guru ~ you.
