30 Day Mom Challenge

Day 21

Forgive yourself when you mess up.

Sometimes I feel this entire challenge was made just for me.  So many of them are perfect for my own struggles, and it is great that I can dive into each and really figure out the root of why I do what I do as a mom.  Ok, so maybe I don’t get it all figured out, but I get a good head start thanks to this little challenge.

As I have said many times before, I am very hard on myself.  I don’t give myself too much credit, and I hold myself accountable at really high standards.  Today, though, I’m taking myself less seriously.  I am patting myself on the back for a job well done.  I think every mom needs reassurance and affirmation, and if you don’t get it from your kids, give it to yourself!  That’s what I’m doing today.  There is nothing specific TODAY that I need to forgive myself about, but the past 20 days have shown you there are many others things I can take into account.  So I’m wiping my slate clean today!  It’s the least I can do for myself.

Just a look at these two smiling faces, and I know I've done ok.
