Being a mom is one of the most rewarding experiences life can offer. However, it’s also one of the most challenging roles we’ll ever play. We may have moments where we doubt our abilities as mothers and feel overwhelmed by the mental load that comes with raising other human beings. But the truth is, you’re doing great mama.
We’re all doing the best we can with what we have, and that’s all that matters! Our kids LOVE us regardless of “how” we think we are doing. They may not see all that goes on behind the scenes of mothering, like the shower cries and sleepless nights, but they will always know how much we love them.
When you’re feeling down or defeated, repeat these words to yourself:
“I am strong. I am capable. I am enough.”
Believe it or not, positive affirmations like these can have a powerful impact on our mindset and help us feel more confident and empowered.
Remember that you’re not alone on this motherhood journey.
There are millions of other moms out there who are going through the same struggles and challenges as you. Reach out to your community and build a support system of other moms who can relate to what you’re going through.
If you don’t have a community or support system, Orlando Mom is here for you. Together, we can share our experiences, offer advice to one another, and lift each other up when we need it most.
Join us in one of our online communities, network with us at our monthly networking event, attend our events, subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on social media. WE are a local group of moms that want to share this motherhood journey with YOU!
As the great Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
So, be kind to yourself and remember that you’re doing the best you can. You are loved, you are appreciated, and you are making a difference in your child’s life every single day.
