Are You Amphibious? Here’s What It Is & Why All Moms Need to Be

In the animal world, being amphibious means thriving in both land and water. In a mom’s world, which is in many ways unseen, being amphibious means ensuring that both our child thrives in his world AND we thrive in ours. Sure, at times we must put our own needs aside for our child’s. But, mom, beware! Even now, women subtly get the message that their needs aren’t important. 

We must be vigilant about not losing ourselves through parenting. We are entitled. We are powerful. We deserve. The more we act on this knowing the healthier both we – and our child – will be. So be amphibious. It’s not just a word, it’s a movement. Take these powerful steps every day, and pass them on.

  • Know what YOU need.
  • Put your own needs aside – temporarily.
  • Repeat: “I am powerful. I am amphibious.”

How are you amphibious, mom?

Wow, what a powerful concept, Gail Harris ! Never thought about it this way. But yes, we need to be able to be good parents without losing ourselves. My work helps me with that!

When I was raising my children, I was divorced and I worked full time, between running a household, full time primary parent and work, left little time for me, but I learnt the hard way, if I don’t take care of myself, the entire house of cards I was balancing, would come falling down. So , Mother’s taking care of yourself is your first priority, it’s not being selfish, it’s your 1st job, not your children, because if your not good to yourself,you won’t be there for them. That includes ME time to refresh your soul. On a personal note I could never have done it or gotten through it without a lot of help each and every day from my soul mate, Jesus Christ, to whom my 3 successful, caring adult children and now 3 healthy grandchildren (4 if you count my Calleigh in Heaven) would not have become my greatest achievement and accomplishment in life. When you have given and done all you have, he’s only a prayer away.
