Us here at Curated Vibes Group want to dedicate this post not only to all the beautiful mothers out there in the world, but especially ours for helping shape us and support us for journeying down the unbeaten path. This has clearly been the year of the Female and we want our Queens to know how appreciated they are.
You are appreciated,
Don't you know we love ya? Sweet lady,
A Likkle Island Girl with Big Time Tings eh. I do not believe in my 25 years of life I have witnessed someone that works and has hustled as hard as you. This Queen traveled from Antigua at the age of 13 and has faced and overcome many trials, tribulations and battles. The strength and the heart this woman has is as one of a lion. But her energy is as crazy as mule and as silly as a monkey. Being a mom, a wife, a Master student ,study for your citizenship and a full time nurse is no easy feet and somehow you managed to make it look flawless and effortless. Thank you for laying down an example and supporting me every step of my own way, green hair and all.
Believe it or not, my mom and I would constantly butt heads growing up, and oddly enough it was probably because we are so much alike. My mom is an only child and my grandmother had her when she was 16 years old and I believe that really shaped my mother to be as independent as she is today.
I feel like I've inherited the analytical and strategic thinking from my dad but have definitely acquired the tech, design and innovative thinking from my mom. At around the time when I was 5 or 6 years old my mom worked at a store called "Zany Brainy" which was a store that sold educational toys and multimedia products. While working there she used my brother and I as mini focus groups by giving us the opportunity to test out the children's toys and games which ultimately helped her better sale recommendations. Being that I was so young, I didn't realize how rare and unique that experience was as it started to mold my brother and I into creative thinkers.
With my mom, it's always about the little things or the things that you don't notice initially, that makes her exceptional. From guiding my brother and I into the career paths we've taken without taking over our decisions, to essentially being a single mom at times while my dad worked 2 jobs with one being in the Air Force, she has ALWAYS been there.
This story is just one of many ways my mom makes small moments, significant ones. No words can truly explain how inspirational she has been to me and as loved as she makes me feel. Happy Mother's Day to my phenomenal mom!
My relationship with my mother growing up was definitely a build of character for me!Both of us being Libra’s , we each tried to find our balance with each other. She was always responsible, and particular about the way things get done. She was always my toughest critic but let me make my mistakes and let me grow into the person who I am today. Being in events, this trait helped me a long way!
Being a teacher, she was hard on us with school and that we always tried our best. Our train rides as kids always consisted of guessing the capitals of different countries, and other geography games. It allowed me not only to love my culture, but to enjoy others cultures and traditions. My journeys across the world will only be better because of my yearning to always learn more.
She is so attentive and caring, that every detail was thought about when working with others. She is the youngest of 7 siblings, and has worked so hard to make sure she was her own individual, so her wall is still really hard to break down at times. But the older I get, the more we bond about our journeys in life.
Thank you Mama for every kiss, hug, argument, cry, and laugh. Your heart is always filled with good intent and I love you for shaping me into the person I am today!
Life is hard and filled with trials and tribulations. Jumping and overcoming hurdles seem impossible at times. And let's face it, they're definitely hard to jump over.
At 5 years old I envisioned 30 to be a pivotal point in my life. But as I am months away, the road to 30 seems to be the hardest yet. The year began with major career changes, followed by a car accident which totaled my car, and then the unexpected happened. I was asked to work an event that was going to bring my career up to new heights. A month and half away from home with a big pay check at the end. That joy, however, was over quickly. Event was in full swing and then canceled at the last minute making headlines around the world. It was embarrassing to even admit to being a part of that catastrophic experience.
Today is May 14th. A day dedicated to cherishing our mothers for their hard work. But today is also a reflection of my life for the past 29.5 years and a testament to the unconditional love that my mom has for me is the reason why I can stand up tall and keep going. She is the reason why I do what I do. She is the reason why I continue to strive to do bigger and better things. She is the reason why I am still here. And just like that, I know I am the reason why she is still here. We are one. And it will be that way until the end of time.
At 5, I said I'd build my mom a large house and build one for myself next door to hers. That is still my dream and I will continue to work hard to make that a possibility. I love you mom, Happy Mother’s Day.
