Mama, You’ve Got This!
There are so many unknowns and new territory to discover when you’re raising young children. It’s no wonder you may struggle with self-doubt and guilt about your decisions.
You are not alone. After working with Mamas with young children (newborn to 5-years-old) for the past 30 years, I’ve heard the common refrain from moms who hope they’re doing the right thing, but often struggle with the following: “I feel guilty about (fill in the blank), “I wish I had more time and energy”, “Should I work”, “Should I be a stay-at-home mom”, “When’s the right time to stop breast feeding?” “Am I spending enough time on my marriage or relationship?”. . . and on and on.
I remember having these exact conversations with myself when my kiddies were young and, oh the battles I had with myself.
Thanks to my loving and gracious mother-in-law, Peggy (fondly known as Mrs. C.), I constantly received the messages from her that, “It’s okay and you’re okay”, “Trust your intuition”, “You’re a good mom”, and yes, “Mama, you’ve got this!” She didn’t say this in so many words, but it was how she carried herself and modeled being a mom to her son (my husband), a Grandmother, and a mom to me.
I’m very sad to say Mrs. C. passed away last November, with all of us around her. Her birthday is January 25th and I wanted to remember and celebrate her by sharing what I learned from her with you.
Thank you for letting me share this with you and allowing me to cry and grieve at her loss as I write this.
Remember your role models and good, healthy women in your life. They are all around you.
So remember, whenever you feel a tinge of self-doubt or guilt, take a deep breath, remember the wise and beautiful women in your life, and hear Mrs. C.’s loving messages:
“It’s okay and you’re okay”,
“Trust your intuition”,
“You’re a good mom”,
“Mama, you’ve got this!”
Thank you Mrs. C. ❤️
“Love to you,”
