At Zensah, we believe Mother’s Day should be every day. But it is nice to have an extra special day to celebrate it once a year! So to celebrate, we are sharing how our moms have inspired us starting a week before Mother’s Day.
For many of us our moms are the reason we started running and playing soccer, learnt to be polite, cook a delicious meal, and especially how to be great leaders. We asked members of Team Zensah how their moms have inspired them and will be sharing all week. Below is a reply from Ultra Runner and Adventurer Heidi Nicole Kumm (runaroundroo).
My mom is the reason I am the woman I am today. That sounds cliché but it’s true. She is a strong, thoughtful, stubborn and confident. Unfortunately she doesn’t always see those traits in herself but I do and knowing that she has managed to find herself and stay true to herself gives me confidence in my ability to do the same.
My mom is the reason I have the confidence to be unapologetically me. She let me be me from the get go, even when I hated her ribbons and lace as a child. She is okay with who I am and, in turn, I became okay with who I am. My mom is the reason I moved to Colorado without a job or family/friends in the area…and that was only the beginning of me finding me and loving me. I know it freaks her out and gives her at least a few gray hairs but, whether she likes it or not, she gets credit for making me into the woman I am today! Thank you mom, I like me! I might be a little crazy and I might not be all that conventional but I am me, unapologetically me…because being me is fun!
