This may seem really silly to some of you, but today we left a note of encouragement for moms at a changing station at the store. Here is the note that we wrote.
I know I have days where I feel run down and exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally. There are days where I feel like a horrible parent and that I’m completely screwing up my kids.
When it comes to my children I am a perfectionist. Not in the sense that they have to be perfect, but that I can’t make any mistakes, everything I say and do HAS to be PERFECT. I know it’s not possible but it’s what I strive for daily and when I mess up I’m really hard on myself.
Sharing some encouragement and kind words to fellow moms is something that needs to be done more often. No one’s life is picture perfect no matter how it’s portrayed on social media. We all have our days. We all need encouragement and to be told “it’s going to be ok.” and “you’re doing a great job.”
I hope our note will bring a smile to another mom’s face and remind her she is amazing and everything she is doing, all the sacrifices she makes, are enough.
I hope you all are having a great day! Remember to spread some kindness today! Its contagious 🙂
