A very special occasion for all mothers around the world, Mother's Day is all about celebrating the love and care mothers give to their children and the big and small sacrifices they make. It brings with it a chance for us to express our gratitude towards our mothers and other maternal figures who have helped us in blooming into who we are today.
While fulfilling their responsibilities, mothers often end up overburdening their shoulders and losing their own selves. And while we know that mothers out there are proving that women can have it all, we are also aware that doing this is not possible for all because of multiple reasons.
This is why we at Lakshita, which is a brand solely dedicated to women coming from different backgrounds and phases of life, thought of coming up with a few ideas that you might want to consider to celebrate this day in a unique way. We know that your children may have already made a few plans to celebrate you, but we are here to push you to celebrate your own self this Mother’s Day.
Here are a few things that you can do to give this Mother’s Day your own twist-
1. Take a break
As cliche as it may sound, take a break. We know it is easier said than done, but as a mother, you are continuously busy taking care of everyone around you, which is why you need to take a day off to unwind by giving yourself a break. Go prepare your favourite meal or just order something and spend the day nestled in your bed, just make sure you do this without feeling guilty.
2. Write something
We do not realise the power writing has when it comes to dealing with our emotions and feelings. Write something describing you, the choices you made, whether you are happy or not, what you want your future to look like, etc. or write a letter to your kids and partner explaining what it is that you expect from them. Whatever you feel, just write it down and we assure you it will be quite relaxing.
3. Pamper yourself
Want to buy that kurta set that has been sitting in your cart for ages? Get that! Wish to get your hair transformed? Go ahead! Want to get your nails done? Do that! Retail therapy or indulging in self-care may not sound very special, but if they make you happy and you have been wanting to do them, do not let anyone stop you, not even your own self. These small yet significant things carry a huge weight and are quite vital.
4. Take yourself on a date
Dress your best and go visit your favourite cafe or restaurant, go watch a movie, or take yourself shopping. Do whatever defines your idea of a good date and make sure you spend every second of it without worrying much about anything else.
5. Host a get-together
If you are a social butterfly, invite over your close friends and family and host a party or a game night. And don’t forget to put your partner and kids, if they are big enough, in charge of everything. After all, it is your day meant to be celebrated your way!
In conclusion, there are a variety of ways for mothers to celebrate their day in a special way. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it brings you immense joy. And last but not the least, do not ever forget that you deserve to be cherished and honoured not just on Mother's Day but every day.
