Stop beating yourself up

It started with this video…

And then there was this one…

And suddenly I am a bawling hot mess. Why are we so hard on ourselves?

It’s okay to be you and feel beautiful. It’s okay to appreciate who you are, inside and out, and to take time to reinvest in yourself.

Moms, in particular, it’s okay to run short on patience. It’s okay to have days where you just want to sit in the car and scream for a minute. It’s okay to say no to the PTA and to the request for an extra piece of candy. It’s also okay to yes to ice cream for dinner every once in a while.

I believe that the fact that you are worried about whether or not you are being a good mom is what makes you a good mom.

So good job. Now go give those kiddos a hug while they’ll still let you!
