This is why:
Listen. We all have those moments where we mess up. We drop the ball, we yell, we get short tempered, we mess up, and all of that. We have moments where we wish we would have done something or responded differently and all of that.
Don’t let those moments define you.
Instead. Let it go.
You can learn from it. I’ve learned that I make a big deal out of things that don’t matter. I’ve learned that sometimes I just need to slow down and listen. I’ve learned to have extra patience. I’ve learned. But I’m not hard on myself for the mistakes and all of that. Or at least I’m not as hard on myself.
So my challenge? Work to let it go. You see the mom guilt keeps us stuck. It makes is so that we don’t see the awesome in the moment. It makes us worry and wonder if we’re enough. Trust me, you’re enough. What you do everyday makes a difference. A life changing, kid raising, loving your family difference.
There is freedom in letting that mom guilt go by the curb and you instead just focusing on today.
So today? Today the challenge is to let go of that mom guilt. And to just be awesome.
Carry on brave mother.
