Really try to stop comparing yourself to other moms–no one wins. You will always find someone  who is bigger, stronger, and faster, if you are looking for it. When you embrace who YOU are and focus on what YOU want out of motherhood, then living up to your dreams and ideals becomes your goal. And achieving it is your focus. Who has energy to waste on anything or anyone else? Think of how much more fun you will have with your family when you live YOUR dream , as opposed to trying to live the dream of another!

The search for finding childcare causes many moms to feel anxious & uneasy. You are human and it’s natural, even healthy to be concerned about finding a special person or group of people who will be impacting lives of your kids. Take a deep breath & remember that it does take a community to raise a family. You are blessed to be able to handpick those who will be your eyes, ears, & mouth when you are not there.

You can have it all, just not all at the same time. You cannot be all things to all people. It takes courage and confidence to say, “No.” It isn’t easy, yet it’s vital to have a clear sense of your priorities–for yourself & your family. Your kids are watching you and learning how to juggle the demands of motherhood, while growing personally in the process. You are teaching them. What a privilege!

Do you give yourself grace? Do you honor all the work you do each day and forgive yourself for things that weren’t completed or done to your liking. If not, please start. The kinder you are to yourself, the kinder you will be to other moms. You will feel happier and more content. You are worth it!

Sleep. We all need it, yet for years when our kids were young, we had little. We started to believe that it wasn’t really necessary. Yet, science tells us that it’s as important as the food we eat and the air we breathe. Insist on it, find the time for it, and you will feel better and be more up to the challenges of motherhood.
