Oh the joys and tears of being a mother!
So many struggles along the way and the journey is one hell of a rollercoaster ride.
And yet, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
And I bet you feel the same! If you’re a mommy, wink!
Motherhood really is a priceless gift from God, the Universe.
To be a miracle worker - to be the miracle in itself.
Yes - and I would bet my own life on this because this is the truth - you are a miracle just because you’re a mother.
Your capability to bring forth a child in this world is truly miraculous! You’re a badass creative partner of the Universe!
So what now?
It pains me to see when a woman - a mother - doesn’t have confidence.
Because she doesn't have a career to show for it.
Because her body was “damaged” by pregnancy.
Because she doesn’t know anything other than to raise children.
And all those other nonsense that are LIES straight from the devil!
Here’s the truth about you -
You are magnificent.
You are miraculous.
You are a Queen.
Stop subscribing to ideas that trigger you because those are lies from the devil.
Here are 3 Mindset Shifts to Elevate Your Confidence As A Mommy
#1 Your First Love Must Be You
Not your husband.
Not your children.
Not your parents.
Not your boyfriend in college. LOL
YOU! It has to be YOU.
Not anyone else.
Remember that your most important job as a woman is to love yourself first.
You are the LIGHT in your marriage. You are the LIGHT in your family.
You are the source of tenderness in your relationships.
And you have nothing to give when you don’t love yourself first.
#2 You Are The Priority.
Not your children.
Yes, I said that. You can quote me on this.
And before you pull my hair and throw me into outer space, let me explain.
I always hear mothers say things like, “I don’t care if I look like trash as long as my children are looking good.”
Mmmm ...on the surface this sounds heroic.
It looks like a sensible thing to say and do.
However, let me remind you that you have to take care of yourself first SO THAT you can take care of your children.
This is especially true if you have daughters.
Imagine these little girls who are looking up to you!
You don’t want to set a bad example and make them believe that neglecting one’s self is virtuous.
#3 You’re Not Competing With Anyone
Stop comparing yourself with other mommies.
You are on your own journey and they are also on their own path.
Some people will give that vibe - knowingly or unknowingly - of competition.
Ignore them. Don’t participate in useless mind games that drain your energy.
Give people the freedom to have opinions about you.
And give yourself the freedom to devalue their opinion.
Yes, you’re not required to put value on their opinions.
You can simply listen and move on, not taking anything personally.
Does any of these mindset shifts resonate with you?
