To all the mommies out there..... yes you 🤗
Ever hid in your bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down your cheeks... We all have
Ever been so tired you feel like you can't function anymore and would do anything to lay down and get the rest you need... we all have
Ever sat in your car, alone, stuffing food in your face because you dont want anyone else to see or know you eat that stuff…we all have
Ever cried on the couch after you yelled at your kids for something little and felt guilty and like you're a crap mum and unworthy...we all have
Ever tried desperately to put those old jeans on because all you really want is to look in the mirror and feel good about yourself....we all have
Ever not wanted to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now…we all have
Ever called out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way you wanted it to… we all have
Ever felt totally alone, whether in a room by yourself or standing in a crowd...we all have
So here's the thing.....
You are enough.
You are important.
You are worthy.
This is a phase of life for us.
This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.
In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard...... And it's hard for so many of us in many different ways.
We don't always talk about it, but it's hard and know this...... it's not just you.
You are enough.
You are doing your best.
Those little eyes that look up at you - they think you are perfect.
They think you are more than enough.
Those little hands that reach out to hold you - they think you are the strongest.
They think you can conquer the world.
Those little mouths eating the food you gave them - they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.
Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours - they don’t want anything more. They just want you.
Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mummy!
