Moms, do you ever feel you are expected to be a certain way, act a certain way, and have a certain look? Society puts so much pressure on living this pinterest-worthy perfect life. When a speck of dirt or hair is out of place just one time, you are considered “a mess”. Good news, moms all over the world! Imperfect is just enough! Being a mom is a hard job. Day after day, we are yelled at, peed on, and sometimes even thrown up on. Yet, somehow, we are supposed to keep a house perfectly clean, look perfect every single day and still get to book group on time (with the book read, mind you!). Then…I read this blog post written by a mom. Immediately, I felt the burden lifted of striving for perfect. Motherhood isn’t about being perfect. Life isn’t about always having it all together all of the time. Life gets messy sometimes. We go through hard times and sometimes we can’t do it all alone.
It is so important for moms all over to remember that you are enough. You are doing your best and you are just fine. When life gets hard, feel confident in yourself..but don’t be afraid to ask for help from those you trust. It isn’t a sign of weakness. It is a sign that you are normal and doing your best. Rest assured that you are not alone.
