…when you’re already more than enough.

You don’t have to feel guilty about being a mother. You’re doing the best you can with what you have.

Being a mother is tiring, exhausting, and extracts the very best from our souls.

Oftentimes we hold ourselves up to a higher, and seemingly unrealistic, standard of what we expect a mother should be doing.

You can quickly find yourself lost and struggling in the compassion or wishful thinking game.

Stop it.

You’re more than enough, and you’re doing a great job.

(Crazy hair, sweatpants and all).
