My Promise to You

Hey Y’all Hey! Kijan ou Ye! How are you doing?

Your first teacher in life are your parents. In my case, my mom. In my sons’ case, me.

When I found out I was pregnant with my baby boy I was so happy. See I always wanted to be a mom, so becoming pregnant felt like a dream come true.

Fast forward to the day he was born and being able to finally met him changed my life forever. Becoming a mother will undoubtedly change your mind, your heart, your body, your soul and your spirit. I realized that I will no longer be living for myself. I would be living to improve my life so that my son can have the best life possible.

In order to provide him with that life first and foremost I had to come into this new relationship of him and I with a new mindset. I realized that I would need to Do Better. Although I felt as though I started off this relationship on the wrong foot already. I always thought I would be married before bringing a child into this world but unfortunately life happens (to be discussed at a later time) and now I’m a single mother.

However, I refuse to let that title of being a single mother define me as less than and vow to never be that mother to hold grudges, to hold hate in her heart because that doesn’t do anything. Hate doesn’t breed love. Love breeds love.

My promise to my son is to break generational curses and let him live freely without carrying the burdens of his parents. He deserves that and so much more.

My promise to my son is to be the best mother to him as I possibly can with all my might. I vow to be there spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially.

My promise to my son is to teach him and guide him. I vow to steer him in the right direction.

My promise to my son is to have an open relationship where he is comfortable to talk to me about any and everything. And if for any reason he is not, to provide him with the outlet to express himself.

My promise to my son is for him to have a wonderful childhood, to let him be a care-free child.

My promise to my son is to plant the seeds of wealth so that we may keep it for generations to come.

My promise to my son is to pour so much unconditional love and joy into him.

Dear Izzy,

You are such a blessing to my life. I want you to believe that you are capable of anything and everything. I want you to be strong, kind, smart, loving, respectful, brave, honest and God-fearing. I want you to live your OWN dreams, love and accept yourself, don’t be afraid to take risks, learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others to always do better. I want you to be courageous, to be a leader and always be true to yourself. I want you to laugh, cry, sing, dance, dream, create, aspire and enjoy life my precious child.  You are the light in my life. I will love you forever and always.

Love,

Mom

Until the next post…

    These are words we as women, mothers, aunts/uncles, grand parents and fathers should speak to our children. Too many of us don’t say encouraging words to our children therefore they grow with the mind set that they are unloved and there is no other way to life. Lets all show our kid a new way. I agree “Break all curse”

    1. Exactly T! We have to show our kids a new way

  3. This is so very special … brought a tear to my eye. “My promise to my son is to break generational curses and let him live freely without carrying the burdens of his parents”. This post is a true gift for your son that he’ll be able to pass on to generations. Thank you for sharing this…

    and if every you wanted to share a piece with Daily Inspired Life I would be honoured to share a story from you.

    Thank you.

    1. Thank you. I will reach out to you.

    Izzy is so so so lucky and blessed to have you as his mother. I pray you manifest this: “I vow to be there spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially.”… You are not what society paints a single mother to be. You transcend that! Sending love. xx

    1. Thank you so much

    Awww this was so beautiful and beautifully written. I felt when you said you’d hope he doesn’t have to carry his parents burdens. Whew yes to that. Our kids should be raised free and free of trauma and shackles. I want this so bad for my two daughters which is why I’m so focused on healing.

    1. Yes hun that’s my focus too…focus on healing so I don’t pass on my hurt.
