"It's incredible to see how we keep pushing through it all, even with the overwhelming ups and downs in life, with minimal support."
Our weekly routine checks each other; from the convo with BIG SISTER MG, thus inspiring this post.
So we ask, Is being a mom enough? Are you a mother who doesn’t work? Do you catch up with your super-busy friends who are working moms and feel like you are wasting your potential? Do you think they are superwomen because they are juggling home and work life and are worthless as you are not excelling in your career?
Well, let me tell you what others won’t – Being A Mom Is Enough!!!
You are a superhero
Just because you are not working in a 9-to-5 job doesn’t mean that you are not making a difference in this world. You are equally precious or even more! Why? Because you are prioritizing your home, kids, and family over everything else. You are dedicating your full attention and time to them.
Sister, you are giving your family something that money can’t buy. While you can always hire someone to clean the house and bring delicious food, where in the world can you buy love and attention for your kids and family? What you are giving them is priceless – even if it feels that they don’t appreciate it at times.
Not good enough?
Do you think cleaning your home and cooking food for the family doesn’t make you good enough? Under the garb of everything-is-ok, carefully look and see how these working moms are struggling to stay afloat barely. I am not saying we can’t do it. Still, it can be pretty challenging and exhausting, especially if you don’t allocate some time for self-care. RELATED POST: https://onebigmommy.com/self-care-pandemic-become-better-you/
There are lots you can do
If you are a stay-at-home mom and you feel that you have some time at hand that you can utilize in a better way, there are heaps of options for you to become productive. You can work on a hobby, freelance, collaborate with someone, start something online, learn a new skill, read books.
Beautiful mom, there are countless other ways in which you can earn money, utilize your time, and feel good about having done something.
It is Beautiful and Powerful
My dear, whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, never undermine your value. You are the precious bond that is holding your family together and showing the light. Without your love and support, they will feel lost and strange.
Yes, sister, we may have our MOM’ents? But as we embrace our motherhood journey, we must celebrate our victories and cheer for every day that we conquer the frantic world of motherhood.
I know we are not perfect; I am not; my children are not, so here we are, a circle of us making mistakes and missteps. We may be imperfect, but something beautiful and powerful in it- is a family thriving together. We are trying to build a life, celebrating each other’s gains. Cheering for the brighter days, laughing with each other through hysterical moments, and crying with each other during sad times and showing up for each other, loving, forgiving, standing up, and not giving up on one another.
Again, let me tell you this, sister, we are not perfect, and we make mistakes, but who is? How on earth did we decide that we are supposed to be?
Yes, I get it; you, your children, and life may not be perfect; it’s easy for us to see the lackings, our mistakes, but do not miss the important things you do right; and that is showing up, loving, forgiving the times we break and standing up for your self and your family.
It is not easy to manage so many things at once, and you are doing it. While you can continuously improve yourself, you need to understand that you are trying your best – with the best possible intentions and purest love, and it is all that matters!
Mind, we will make mistakes; but accept you are human; it’s part of the process. Please do not allow it to be the value of your story. Your story is a narrative of truth, strength, courage, unconditional love, and resiliency. Making mistakes will enable us to learn, grow and thrive.
Listen to me, dear sister, you are the best at what you do, and let no one else tell you otherwise!
So, what has being a mom taught you. Please share it with me. Comment down bellow.
Happy Mother’s Day To All of You Super Moms.
