Mama's Prayer Flags Printable DIY

I am so Happy for taking part of this Blog Hop for the New Mama Welcome Pack, a wonderful idea from Catherine Redfern.
A pack made to enjoy motherhood... without guilt, overwhelm or losing yourself :)

I am a mother of 3 children, 2 boys and a girl, so I have been there ;)

Being a mother is an amazing experience but it can be very challenging, emotionally exhausting and overwhelming sometimes. I found that nurturing myself using happy and positive thoughts, like affirmations totally helped me focus.

That´s why I love affirmations, an easy and unexpensive way to focus on what you want to achieve, everytime you do it you are putting yourself on the right track, you are choosing to live on the positive side of life :)

So, I have created this sweet printable Mama's Prayer Flags to help you put positive intentions into your day! Prayer Flags are mostly used in Tibet, they bring blessings for happiness and for a long and prosperous life.

Enjoy!


                 

This beautiful Mama Prayer Flags include 2 free printables, like the ones you see above.

Try beggining your day by repeting the affirmations on the Prayer Flags. It might sound something like this:
Today is a happy day
