Being a Good Mom vs Social Media
The image of the perfect mother that you have in your mind, that you piece together from social media and the highlight rolls of others... she doesn't exist.
Yet we spend so much time trying to be her, trying to embody her.
Is it any wonder we feel like we are failing?
Being a good mom is not about who we are when we are performing for others, it is about the way we attune to and care for our children. It is about the way we parent and raise a family in line with our values and what is important for us.
Others do not define your worth as a mom. They do not define your successes and your failures, because they don't know your values and what is important to you.
A failure to one may have been a conscious choice to another because we do not all value and prioritize the same things. Could you imagine how bland and boring life would be if we did?
Feel encouraged and empowered to prioritize the things in motherhood that are important to you, without worrying about who is in the peanut gallery watching. This is where you being to find true joy on your motherhood journey.
