Former First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama speaks on motherhood and exposure, as she post a lovely photo of her daughters and herself on vacation together in Paris.
The beautiful wife of ex-President Obama posted the photo on her Instagram page, talking about her own parents, especially her mother, and how they gave her that rare opportunity to see the world outside her comfort zone of America. She said she travelled on vacation with her mother to Paris while she was still a young girl, and despite not having enough, her mother made sure she got that experience.
Michelle Obama speaks, as she prepares for Mother’s Day, sharing an idea of what mothers should try and do for their children, as such which was done to her by her mother while growing up, made her who she is today. She said she is taking that same chance with her daughters, while hoping to change their perceptions about life.
Taking to her Instagram page, she said:
“With #MothersDay just a couple days away, I find myself thinking a lot about the way my mother raised me. And even though our family was crammed into a tiny apartment, one of the greatest gifts she gave me was the freedom to explore and develop into my own person. For instance, even though we didn’t have much money, she and my dad cobbled enough money together to send me on a high-school trip to Paris, which opened up the world to me in so many ways. And now that I’m raising kids of my own, I wanted to pass that lesson on to my own girls. I’ve been so fortunate to be able to travel with Sasha and Malia all across the country and around the world—experiences my mother never would have dreamed of back when I was their age. But though the settings may be different, the message is the same, and it’s one I hope mothers everywhere pass on to their daughters—in seeking out new perspectives and reaching outside of our comfort zones, we can discover more about ourselves”.
