10 Life Lessons from my Mum

Updated: May 12


It’s Mother’s Day!


This morning I was greeted with cuddles, home-made cards and a rather odd tasting cappuccino and pink sprinkles. It was awesome and, whilst we’re not that family that goes all out on days like this, I did relish the attention and the time to reflect on motherhood.

For good or for bad, whilst life doesn’t come with a manual, it does come with a mother.


I’m lucky to have a mum who has shown me how to live with integrity.


She taught me to try my best, find the best in others and has always loved and accepted me - no matter what.


So what are other life lessons from our mums? …I asked our VIVEVA tribe and got some heart warming wisdom.


Lessons from our Mums


#1 Be generous. Give with a joyful heart


#2 Read. It’s your gateway to knowledge.


#3 Try something new. You may like it, may learn something and may be good at it


#4 Your best is always enough


#5 Lift your head. Change your attitude & keep going


#6 Never look back. Life moves forward


#7 There are no limits.

I love this list and know there are many others to add.
