Sometimes I just need to tell myself that. Tonight, as I finished out another long day of being a mom on my own (Brian was working late, don’t worry!!) I was coming upstairs and it just hit me. I’m definitely stronger than I think and more capable. I’m not the best or most perfect mom (far from it), but I’m doing a pretty good job, and it’s about time I believe that. I just found a mantra repeating in my head as I went about my business this evening…
I am amazing because I did not completely lose my temper when the kids weren’t following directions.
I am amazing because I took the time to pet my outside kitties.
I am amazing because I remembered to start the dishwasher after loading it.
I am amazing because I gave my doggies a treat before saying goodnight to them.
I am amazing because I took the garbage out.
I am amazing because I did my exercises before I got ready for bed.
I am amazing because I am writing this blog post. 🙂
It’s the little things for me. I am taking little steps to get through my days, and learning to celebrate accomplishing all the little tasks that add up to the big ones.
One more: I am awesome because I am going in to comfort my crying boys instead of yell at them.
So take the time to think about it…why are you amazing?
