Accepting The Unacceptable, Parenting Autism, Epilepsy, Special Needs

Today I had a hard day. Do you ever have those days where you just feel like everything you do is wrong? You don't have anything figured out? The laundry is piled up, You haven't read your kid a bedtime story in forever, you haven't showered in 2 days, motherhood isn't quite fulfilling your sense of worthiness, you are questioning if you are doing anything right. 

I had that day today. The to-do list was longer than the completion list. Sometimes I feel like I should know how to juggle everything all the time. I have been a mom for 16 years, I mean, I should have this thing down pat right? 

In this episode, I am getting very vulnerable. I am sharing all my fears, shortcomings, worries, and feelings of inadequacy. 

I have to believe that I am not the only one with bad days like today. Yeah, of course, us moms have bad days when our kids are in the hospital or having a very hard time because of neurological challenges, those are obvious. I am talking about bad days that we just don't feel we are enough.

This episode is very important because us moms need to know we aren't alone. we ALL struggle. Some of us struggle in areas that others succeed in and vice versa. If we didn't have these hard days, worries, feelings of inadequacy, then we aren't human. just sayin 

I think we have these feelings because there are things we can improve on. We always have room to grow. 

But what I am learning is that shaming ourselves and putting ourselves down doesn't help. 

I hope you listen through my weaknesses list because I have a strategy I use to balance those feelings. 

What if after we spent time focusing on all the ways we don't measure up, we spent some time listing all the ways we are killing it. The things we are doing right. 

With this exercise, you will get a better perspective that you are doing a good job. You might not have everything figured out but there are things you are doing right and as moms, its so important that we are able to focus on those things as well.
