If you are doing more surviving than thriving- this is for you.
(Thanks Jill for that ever so accurate phrase. 😉)
Every time I open my Instagram or Facebook I am greeted with moms who seemingly look like they have it all together. Art projects, perfect schedules, and at home work outs fill up my feed.
Most of me is thinking “Yay you! Get it girl!”, but there is that part of me who gets sucked into feeling less than. Cue the mom guilt.
Navigating 2020 hasn’t been easy for me. I’ve been riding a roller coaster of emotions- for every few “I got this” days, I have a “NO you don’t” day.
Some days everything works. The house gets cleaned, the schedule is followed, the fights are minimal, and we might even squeeze in a fun activity. But those days of simply surviving are VERY real too and that’s okay.
If you’re feeling less than, remember that those kids don’t care if you are perfect. You might not be thriving, but you showed up and that’s what matters.
No matter how your day goes,
YOU are a good mom.

Thank you for the reminder! I feel like moms can’t hear that enough!
Love your message here! We all need to chill and just accept that life right now isn’t perfect but we are okay.
This is such a good reminder! No matter what you do, somedays are just going to be more surviving than thriving.
Thank you for this! Today we just survived..we will try better tomorrow!
