Motherhood is serious business… but not without a funny side as well. Love my mom and I love being a mom. Most of the time, it’s no laughing matter but sometimes some humour gets us through the tough stuff and helps us smile about some of the tough stuff too. Here are 12 quotes about moms and momhood. Enjoy!

To your success,
Every now and again, there is an expert from Napoleon Hill’s Thinks and Grow Rich that I re-read and repost on Social Media and share with friends via email or in conversations.
I re-write it by hand in my journal, as well.
The reason I do this is two-fold. I do it to remind myself of this powerful mantra but also to share with others who may find the words valuable and worth dedicating themselves to.
Here’s the excerpt:
I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built
upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not
benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I
wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve
me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy,
jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity,
because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me
success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and
I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud
once a day, with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHTS and
ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
I would love to hear your comments on the above words.
I also invite you to implement this Confidence Formula by Napoleon Hill in your life and business if you feel fit. Share and spread the excerpt. Imagine spreading these words and influencing just 1 person a day. What an impact you would have!
To your success and outrageous goals,
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad ali
This is one of my favourite quotes. Quite empowering, really. I am reminded of the story that was told to me time and time again as a child about the “Little Train That Could”. Whenever I came across something difficult, I thought of it as something that I could overcome and that there was no “can’t” (It helps having a very positive Kindergarten teacher!) This quote, once again empowers me to believe that anything is possible. Be strong in this belief – It is an important step in achieving those outrageous goals!
To your success,
Quote of the day ~ Henry David Thoreau
