Being a mom can be the most rewarding thing we do – and also the most difficult. We do so many things right and yet we often focus on the things we think we did wrong. We tell ourselves we don’t do enough for or with our children. That we spend too much time on our phones, or on our computers, or at work and more. All of this negative talk just sends messages to our subconscious that we are not what we should be – and those kinds of thoughts do not promote action taking – they promote shrinking, sadness and staying small. Worst of all, those kinds of thoughts and feelings promote us staying the same because when we have feelings of guilt, our body goes into lockdown mode. It’s time to change all that! It’s time to feel love for yourself, to feel proud of what you’re doing and realize that your children are happy and healthy and that means you’re doing great!
– Release the guilt around everything from screen time to food choices to just needing to get some things done, and create space for doing better
– Begin to feel proud of the amazing mom you are
– Release judgements of ourselves and other moms; stop the constant comparison
– Learn to focus on all the things you’re doing right
