When was the last time another Mom told you, “You are an awesome Mom!”
Was it in a moment when you knew for a fact you not only felt exhausted but looked it?
You’re chasing your child down the grocery store aisle or holding a screaming toddler and trying to look like you have it all together – but then comes that comment to reinstate the fact that you are failing.
Did you feel inspired and energized by this statement? Or did you feel ashamed?
Ashamed that this brave mom felt they had the power to bestow on you the will to keep being “awesome”.
Ashamed that they felt the need to give you a helping hand by telling you something you know is hard to see.
Sometimes those well intentioned words of encouragement come with a good dose of pity.
Truly the only person that can speak the truth to you is… You. A compliment doesn’t matter if you don’t accept it and believe it.
You need to take a moment alone to remind yourself of your strength and how loved you are by your family even when you don’t feel it. They would be lost without you.
Here’s a helpful trick. When you get up first thing in the morning and get the coffee ready, have a coffee mug near by that reminds you of your worth.
As you sip on your morning coffee and see the words, “Most Loved Mama, Always 24:7”, take a moment to remember the things you’ve done to take care of your family. Think about those small moments your family responded with actions of love.
