Did anyone else out there need this message today besides me?
I had a bad day yesterday. A BAD one.
At bedtime, I told my husband that I was a BAD mom. Of course - he disagreed... and, of course, I pushed back (you know the routine).
For me - it's important to acknowledge when I'm not at my best, so that I can analyze what I need (AND what I'm not taking!) to get back on track.
What I DON'T need to do in those moments is decide that I'm a terrible parent in the process.
So - if you're feeling this way too, remember YOU ARE DOING YOUR BEST. I promise, you are!
And, if you want things to shift? Decide what you can give to yourself. My guess is that your well is a little dry and needs some tending to.
For me? I did some baking this morning, chose to do yoga in the afternoon, have drank WAY more wanter than normal, and will be hitting the bed early tonight.
For you? I don't know what you need - but YOU do.
What DO know? You're not a bad mom... just a tired one. Or a stretched one. Or a stressed one. Or an imbalanced one.
So - go give yourself the love you deserve too.
