As moms, we can easily feel like failures. All from what we do with/to our children and our lives. We can self punish all we want, but it might not always pay off in terms of helping ourselves do better.
I have been on that road for a bit. I have been feeling as if I was not being my best. Today, I began a new chapter. I broke through part of a writing project, though I was dealing with mild depression, and as I got further and further into my work, I felt stronger and stronger. But there were still moments of fragility.
I wrote a poem that my son does not want me to post here, but called my writing mentor and spoke with her about what I have been going through, and she suggested an idea. She said that I should stop putting myself down with words, and that this would be the beginning of succeeding at my current project. Her thoughts: positive self-talk attracts the successful achievement of one’s goals
So I want to say to myself, and to all the moms here that feel as if they are failing their kids at times, tomorrow is another day.
Lets all have a great one tomorrow, and know that we are good moms!
