Finding Magic in Everyday Motherhood
Motherhood is a journey filled with ups and downs, amazing, life changing moments and big challenges too. Amongst the whirlwind of responsibilities it's easy for mums to feel overwhelmed - and forget to notice, and cherish the magical moments. In the fast paced world, finding magic in every day is essential for growing as human beings, connecting with our selves and the world around us. Let's talk about how to rediscover the wonder in the little moments, embrace the present and notice the simple pleasures that make the motherhood journey extraordinary. 

Embracing The Here And Now
While multitasking and juggling all our responsibilities, it's easy to lose sight of what is going on right now, in this present moment. However the magic of motherhood lies in being fully present with our children. In this day and age, letting go of and putting away distractions is not the easiest thing. Flicking through our phones is an awful habit, that the majority of us have! It's going to take strict determination to put your phone away if you want to be present in the moment. So take a deep breath, let go of distractions and immerse yourself in the here and now. Whether it's reading a bedtime story, playing in the park or enjoying a family meal - be present with your child, savouring the time you spend together!

Look At The World Through Your Child's Eyes
Children have a natural ability to see the world as it is meant to be seen. With wonder, magic and awe. Embrace their curiosity and join them in exploring the small miracles that surround us daily. From the colours of a butterfly, to listening to their imaginative stories. Let your child sense of wonder reignite your own.

Discover Beauty In The Mundane
In the routine of motherhood, we often overlook the beauty in the ordinary. As mentioned above, try to pause and notice the little things in your every day life. From the way the sunlight shines through your window, your children's laughter or a warm hug. Embrace the magic of these mundane moments and find gratitude in the simple things in life.

Engage In 'Magic' Rituals
Add a touch of magic to your motherhood journey by lighting scented candles, cooking by candlelight, listening to calming, peaceful music, creating a soothing bedtime routine or practising gratitude in the morning. These rituals can ground you and your children, creating a sense of calm in your home.

Capture Moments
There is a fine line of using your phone to distract yourself from daily life, and using your phone to document the special moments of every day life. The little, magical moments of motherhood can be treasured forever with the help of photographs and journals. Take photos of precious moments (and print the photos!), write down funny anecdotes, jot down your children's insightful quotes. By documenting these magical moments you create a treasure trove of memories to revisit and cherish as your children grow.

Seek Support 
Motherhood can be isolating, but finding a community of like-minded mothers can be the touch of magic you need. From support groups to parenting communities, or best friends who share your experiences. Sharing these moments with other mums who have been or are going through similar experiences can remind you that you are not alone, and the magic of motherhood extends far beyond your own home.
