NICOLE TRUNFIO, MUM TO ZION AND GIGI.
How do you find time for yourself as a mum?
I have just managed to get my son on a solid schedule as he has started to attend Montessori school, and (thank the heavens) Gia is on his same sleep schedule, so by 8pm the night belongs to me. This is the time where I get to indulge in my personal projects, finish off working on upcoming events for ERTH jewelry and my other businesses and find inspiration to drive me through the next day. If I am lucky, I even get a bath and steam shower, but I am a creative, so filling my mind with the arts is better self care for me than a beauty indulgence. As long as I have my LUMIRA "the vow" candle burning beside me, and a touch of fragrance oil on my neck and wrists, I am in bliss.
What do you want to teach your children about self-love?
I want to teach them that self love is imperative for the survival of the human race and the planet. I want them to know that it is more important than what they learn at school, and it is the foundation for how the rest of their lives will play out. I want them to know it is 'healthy' just like the food they eat, and the excursive they do to maintain a beautiful energy flow through their bodies and their environment.
What does self-love mean to you and why is it important?
I think it gets overlooked or confused with narcissism. Self love creates a healthy relationship with your 'self', your deep inner self, only then can you go out into the world and create healthy loving relationships with your family, friends, colleagues, strangers....community. This makes such an impact on the world and the overall emotional health of the people. One person, can affect every human, we are that powerful, something so simple as self love can influence the world to be a better place, one person at a time.
How will you spend Mother's Day?
Observing my greatest gifts, my husband and my children. Staring deep into their eyes and being present there. Something we can easily forget to do on a day to day basis with our busy lives. I am so so amazed at how much purpose and how deeply fulfilled I am now that I have these amazing souls to call 'family'. Before I met my husband I spent a year where I decided not to be in a romantic relationship with anyone, not to let anyone into my 'field' so I could harbor and nurture my own self love. They say the way you feel about yourself at the time, attracts that type of person, I was experiencing a very high and clear vibration when I met my husband, I am thankful to myself that I "vowed" to bring self love into my life the year before I met him, I feel I would not have the bliss I have now, had I not taken that important time.
