Open Letter To Mother's Who Feel Like They're Failing, Your Not!

 

Motherhood is one of the greatest joys in life, but it also is one of the most challenging experiences one can possibly face. From the sweet moments of laughter & reading together to the difficult moments like tantrums, Mum & Dad are there for all of it… & sometimes, it can be really easy to get worn out.

 

To the Mum hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks..

To the Mum who is so tired she feels like she can’t function anymore & would do anything to lay down and get the rest she needs…

To the Mum sitting in her car, alone, stuffing food in her face because she doesn’t want anyone else to see or know she eats that stuff…

To the Mum crying on the sofa after she yelled at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty & like she is unworthy…

To the Mum that is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she really wants is to look in the mirror & feel good about herself…

To the Mum that doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now…

To the Mum that is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to…

To the Mum that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd…

You are enough.
You are important.
You are worthy.

This is a phase of life for us. This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.

In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it’s hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don’t always talk about it, but it’s hard and it’s not just you.

You are enough.
You are doing your best.
Those little eyes that look up at you – they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.

Those little hands that reach out to hold you – they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.

Those little mouths eating the food you gave them – they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.

Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours – they don’t want anything more. They just want you.

Because you are enough. You are more than enough, Mama.

You. Are. Amazing.
