"If I can find love, kindness, and compassion for myself, then I can find it for my mother because everyone is just trying to do the very best that they can." - Crystal Jenkins
Today on Small Changes Big Shifts, we are honoring mothers with Your Wellness Connection’s very own, Crystal Jenkins. Crystal is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor at Your Wellness Connection as well was a Director of Teacher Training at The Hoffman Institute.
Mother’s Day can mean a lot of different things for everyone as each of us has a different relationship with our mothers.
Today, we’re reminding you that even if that relationship is complicated, you can still love and appreciate your mother in your own way. So, not only are we honoring mothers today but also supporting those who may be struggling with the relationship they have with their mother, their role as a parent, or finding inner peace and self-love for themselves.
As you listen, you will learn:
Listen and find out how you can put yourself in your mother's own shoes to imagine what her own childhood was like including where she was living and who she was living with. This will help you to understand your mother's own struggles, self-beliefs, thoughts, and emotions and in turn, improve your relationship with each other.
In this special episode, we also dive deep into how the Hoffman Institute can help you understand where you come from including which thoughts, habits, and behaviors have been passed down to you so that you may reset and recreate yourself through self-compassion and self-love by being more present with yourself.
