I hope all of you moms out there had a great Mother’s Day. I hope your children blessed you with little treats to show their love and that you got a chance to relax and enjoy being with your family. Too often, mother’s feel overworked, overtired, and underappreciated. This year, why don’t you stretch that Mother’s Day bliss into the rest of the year… by allowing yourself to work on your writing project and finally reaching your dream of publishing a book. Here are three reasons why you should give yourself the gift of self-publishing.
1. You deserve a break.
Many moms give all their time and energy to their families and work. They struggle to find time to do the things they love, but you deserve a break. Let the dishes sit in the sink for the night, and spend some time writing.
2. It’s good for your family.
Moms who make time for their passions feel more fulfilled and are able to be happier, more patient parents. Giving yourself permission to work on your own project isn’t denying your children your time, it is giving them the gift of a happy, successful mom. They will be proud of you.
3. It’s also a gift to your family.
Self-publishing a book can be a great way to create a special, unique gift that your children can have forever. Whether you write a novel and dedicate it to them or pen a book filled with life lessons you want to teach them or publish a memoir sharing your life story or create a children’s books of the stories you tell them before bed, they will cherish your work forever.
Happy Mother’s Day!
