Today’s affirmation: I am the best mom for my kids.
Ask almost anyone and they’ll tell you that motherhood is one of the hardest jobs on the planet
You, an imperfect, fallible human being are put in charge of someone else’s life. Not only are you charged with keeping them alive, but you are also the one to raise them to be functional and contributing members of society. (In other words, raise them to be kind and generous to their fellow humans.)
That is a lot to have on your shoulders. A lot of responsibility, a lot of hope, a lot of love.
And the weight of the job responsibilities can bog us down so intensely that we doubt our ability to properly parent.
We doubt our decisions, we doubt how “good” of a mom we are, we doubt that we’re doing anything right.
Carrying around all of that negativity isn’t doing us any favors.
Would you rather feel bad about your parenting all the time or feel good about it?
One simple thing can change all of that.
Change how you talk about yourself to yourself. Change the things you say, change the things you think. Change your life.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not.
This type of work is what I love to help women with. Helping women change their self-talk and their mindset which increases how much they love and value themselves has dramatic effects on not only how they parent, but how they feel about their parenting.
You don’t have to believe you’re a mediocre mom anymore. You can absolutely change how you think and believe that you’re the best mom ever. Even on bad days. Even when you mess up. It’s possible.
Change your mindset and you’ll change your life.
