Being a MOM.
Dang if it isn't one of the hardest challenges ever. There are days when I am on my game and I feel like I could win a mommy-metal. I mean, look I potty-trained before 3 this time around!
And then... your kid says "SH*T". Well, oh sh*t.
I'm failing. I'm confused. Why am I filled with guilt and there's no where to show me how to do this 'right'. Well, in all honesty, there is no 'right' way to mom, mom. #sorry
But, there IS direction. It's turning it over to God, doing self-evaluation, seeking his direction, and then taking action to be your best. It's realizing that we aren't pefect, but we ARE worthy of having a joyful, fulfilling, and enjoyable journey mamas... and it starts with being honest with yourself.
I went through some mama guilt recently and instead of burying it, or getting lost in it - I looked at it head-on. Why was I feeling this way? What (if anything) needed to change?
I found 3 problem areas that I could change:
1. Blaming & projecting
2. Feeling reactive to social media, email, and the to-do list
3. Needing more help with my kids so I could be more efficient and focused during "work time"
I jotted them down and took specific action to implement some changes. Believe it or not, there is a solution to EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. YOUR. PROBLEMS. Have you ever heard the saying, you're only as successful as the number of problems you can solve?
Here I sit feeling much better about this beautiful journey of motherhood, more focused, and open to capturing the fleeting moments with our little humans.
I hope these lessons help you inventory your own life and see if there's anywhere you can improve to the be the mama God has called you to be. We are worthy of happiness AND happy kids. We got this. Let's let God lead our steps.
I hope you enjoy. I'll meet you inside the episode, sis!
