The very fact that you worry about being a good mom means that you already are one – Jodi Picoult
As we approach Mother’s Day, I think about how am I doing as a mother. It’s like a little “check-in.” I realize now at this stage in my life, I don’t obsess over mistakes. I learn & keep moving. There is no “right” way to do things. I embrace my authentic self by openly sharing my feelings (My teenagers just love that…tee hee)
I’ve learned that no matter how perfect my plan is, life gets in the way and has a way to rearrange it. I’ve allowed myself to be more open to the remarkable opportunities that come with change. Routines are awesome, but there will always be things we can’t control. Just let them flow through you.
When I have to make a tough choice, I’ve learned I already have the most-qualified life advice guru – myself! I’ve learned to trust the process.
I’ve learned as a mother that it is important for me to soak up new experiences with my daughters. It makes all of us more dynamic and creative.
A real quick story. My daughter Mackenzie sent me a text with just a link, and at first I was hesitant. But curiosity got the best of me, and so I clicked on in and I watched the video which brought a lot of tears and this overwhelming feeling of joy and validation and thinking to myself, “Yep, you’re doing something right.” It is a remarkable video. Enjoy!
Do you ever do a little “check-in” what have you learned that you would love to share?
