Mother’s Day Musing: How Far Could I Flee?


My Special Mother's day card from my eldest son!

Hello world, today is celebrated as Mother’s Day in some parts of the world and so I decided to share a mea culpa of mine with you all. It was first shared on the phenomenal Stigmama blog last week.

Alas, I have come by Grace and Mercy and tremendous Self Awareness, to realise that I really can’t flee at all from my ownself. This is who I am and who I should embrace in my motherhood. I am glad to be gearing to run back to my boys. In the meantime, Happy mother’s day to all. This is surely one of the reasons for my forthcoming memoir:

I am a tough woman by my own standards, and I'll keep affirming that until I become tougher!

Author:

Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
