Thank you Trollbeads, the original bead-on-bracelet brand, for collaborating with me on this Mother’s Day post. As always thoughts and opinions are all my own. See disclosure details HERE.
Well, mommas, we made it! Mothers Day is officially upon us and it is time to throw down in celebration of an amazing job we do day in and day out.
It’s a job we don’t give ourselves credit for enough.
It’s a job we constantly feel like we failing to do.
It’s a job full of pressure. We are legit in charge of the future of the world with these mini humans.
It’s a job where comparison is the thief of all joy.
It’s a job riddled with fear and anxiety over what ifs.
It’s a job with horrible pay, terrible hours, and our bosses can be a little demanding.
And yet it is a job we show up every day for whether we are sick, tired, sad, run down and for the most part, we do it with a smile. Because even when you don’t think you can make it another minute those babies say something funny, do something for the first time, throw their arms around your neck and instantly you are recharged with a happiness through your heart that will get you to bedtime. Basically feels like a Venti Americano with 5 Shots (clearly I have ordered that once or twice).
Having a “why” in anything you do is so important. It keeps you going and gives you direction as well as motivation. Motherhood is no different. Sometimes your why can get lost and in turn, you end up just going through the motions. My “Mama Mia” Mothers Day bracelet by Trollbeads is my daily reminder of “my why” that I wear on wrist (right next to my heart on my sleeve.)
The Mama Mia bead is described by the artisan as :
“My inspiration, my comfort, my friend; Mamma Mia! There is a fire within her soul. Full of laughter and play. A limited glass bead just for her. Because no one can take her place.”
Trollbeads is the original bead-on-bracelet brand founded in 1976 in Copenhagen. Over 40 years of lovingly curating a line of beads and jewelry pieces from the finest materials, with the assistance of over 100 designers, like Neetu Gupta, who have contributed to the collection.

The saying the days are long but they years are short could never be truer. So on this day celebrate YOU! Celebrate what an amazing job you are doing. Celebrate the fact that you literally have THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD. And if you are a single mom, don’t have help, or already working on this day, team up with your mom tribe to switch up and take an hour, hell take the day to celebrate you. While you are at it, get your mom one too because you finally get it. And she deserves it.
And don’t forget. There are so many ways to mom.
