Mother’s Month + Resources Blog

Hello #SheOwned Queens! 

Mother’s Day isn’t just a single day in May; it’s an everyday celebration of the incredible women who nurture, support, and guide their families through life’s many challenges and triumphs. 

To all the moms and caregivers out there, we see you, we honor you, and we celebrate your consistent strength, resilience, and love. 

This blog is dedicated to you, highlighting a few local community programs in South Florida that support moms every day and sharing a personal story from one of our own co-directors.

This is a snapshot of HER STORY:

Hey, I’m Gelsandra Guzman—mother of two, wife, daughter, and entrepreneur. As I navigate this current season of my life, there are many thoughts and emotions that have led me to focus more on my role as "MAMA." My journey has been deeply intertwined with my own healing, largely stemming from a challenging relationship with my mother. Although we have rekindled our relationship, there are marks in my life that will forever remain.

Through this journey, I've realized that we hold the power to take control of the present and break the cycles that no longer serve us. For my daughter and me, it’s been a path rooted in patience, grace, and true love. I’ve had to fight through and navigate my thoughts, understanding that my initial reactions don’t define who I am—and that’s okay.

Right now, I am choosing to give the biggest asset we all have—time—to my kids. I’m committed to creating genuine moments in the everyday, experiencing life with them, traveling, journaling together, and simply having meaningful conversations. This time with them is priceless, and it’s a decision I will never regret.

In the month of June, I want to encourage you to pat yourself on the back, hug yourself in the mirror, and dance it off because you are doing an amazing job. Motherhood is by far the hardest role, but it’s also the most fulfilling and rewarding one. Remember, you hold the power to directly impact your own line of generations, helping them become the best versions of themselves. Let’s strive to avoid toxic behaviors and instead nurture feelings, thoughts, and dreams that uplift and empower our children. We are the real superheroes!
