Imagine what the world would be if every mom loved the type of mom they were rather than focus on how they aren’t little Johnny's mom from down the street. Johnny’s mom is what Johnny needs, and your kids are nothing like Johnny so why are you trying to give them a mom that doesn’t meet the needs that your kids have? You are exactly what your kids need. Read that again, you are exactly what your kids need. Own it. Be proud of it. Wear it like a badge of honor.
I spent the last few weeks/months taking an inventory of the days where I feel like I have it totally backwards and days where I feel like maybe I’m getting the hang of it. I mean we all have those days where we go to bed and we’re like “heck yes! Today I was super woman and super woman was me and I feel freaking fantastic and I’m that part in Proverbs 31 where ‘her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her.’ I am queen, and all adore me”. And then we all have the days where we go to bed going “I spent too much time on my phone, I wasn’t patient, I should have done the puzzle for the 4th time with my kid, they ate leftover Mac n cheese for dinner, you literally can’t get lower than leftover boxed Mac n cheese, I yelled too much. I suck and I’m not meant to be a mom and the world hates me and no wonder because I totally suck.”
Guys… just because you can DOES NOT mean that you should. I’m talking to you, girlfriend! The one who is about to jump into 2020 and be the super motivator, inspirier, B/A mama who is determined to make this her year! Listen to me, sister. This can still be your year without you burning out yourself, your family and everyone else around you.
