Dear Moms, Your fellow mom here to give you a few simple reminders. First, you are loved. Second, you are worthy. Third, you are ENOUGH.
I see you. I see you waking up early to start your day before everyone in the house wakes up. You are thinking about your long to-do list. There is a pile of 3-day old laundry that is begging to be put away. I see you staring at the dishes from the night before. They are still there because you were just too tired to wash them. “They can wait,” you muttered to yourself. And, so they did.
I also see you in the quiet of the night after everyone has gone to bed. The day playing through your mind. You are asking yourself, “Did anyone notice the stack of papers that were organized and put away?” Or that those toys piled up in the living room have returned to their bins. Did anyone care that the groceries were bought, dinner was made, and kids were happily put to bed?
Sometimes it feels like one day is the same as the next and the pattern just repeats itself endlessly. There are days you may not hear a “thank you”, ” I appreciate you”, or “I love you”. On days when you don’t hear a kind word of gratitude, I want to remind you of three things…you ARE loved, you ARE worthy, you ARE enough.
You are loved.
I don’t know you but I do know that there people in this world who love you. They may live in your home, down the street, in the next town, or a hundred miles away. They are out there. On days when you cannot feel love let my words and this printable be a reminder that you are.
You are Worthy
You are worthy of a break. There are always going to be things to do, but you have to take care of yourself. You are worthy of self-care. So take that bath, hide in that closest, drive to Target alone. You deserve it and don’t ever let anyone make you believe otherwise.
You are Enough
This one is the BIG one. Sometimes it is hard to believe that what you accomplish in a day is enough. I know because this post resonated with some many moms. In case you didn’t see let me remind you that it is okay to give yourself permission to not live up to other people’s standards. If all you do is keep the kids fed and loved then that is enough. Some days you will manage to do it all and other days you feel like nothing was accomplished. It’s all enough.
