A Message For All The Weary Moms: You Are Enough
“No matter what I do, it never feels like enough.”
Earlier this week I sat at a table with six other women and there was one thing we all had in common.
We all felt like we weren’t enough.
If I work, I should be home more.
If I’m at home, I should be contributing more.
My family tells me I’m not doing enough.
Stuff I see online tells me I’m not doing enough.
Everyone else’s Facebook posts tell me I’m not doing enough.
Let me tell you something. Lean in close, this is really important.
You are enough.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret… Are you ready? Are you paying attention?
The reason you feel like you aren’t enough is because there is always someone else out there doing more than you. And she’s fierce about her opinions. She passionately defends her choices. Loudly. With lots of words and really pretty pictures that she posts to Pinterest.
But guess what?
Because really, we all feed the same. We all feel like we are not enough.
Go then, and be shiny today! Don’t just do it for yourself, do it for her. She needs your glow.
The conversation continues on Facebook. Follow my author page for more insights and resources about living a shiny, abundant and beautiful life.
