Accepting The Unacceptable, Parenting Autism, Epilepsy, Special Needs

Apr 16, 2019

We all want to be the best parents. I remember when I was pregnant with my first son, I was going to be the best mom there ever was. I wasn't going to make all those mistakes that everyone else did. 

But then he was born and I realized that there is a lot of things out of my control. I wasn't able to be perfect and felt it in a way I hadn't anticipated. 

Fast forward to having a child with autism and epilepsy. My daughter Remy. She needed a different kind of mom. A kind that had all her ducks in a row and who knew how to do it all. But that mom doesn't exist. All she is left with is me. 

I am not perfect. I am far from it. I feel most of the time that I am not even worthy of such a task of raising her and being what she needs me to be.

But What I am realizing is that the feeling we get of not-enoughness, is soooooo typical. it comes with motherhood. 

I actually now don't even think its all that bad. It means that we care. 

But today's message is just to simply say, you ARE enough. you Are the right person for the job and figuring out how to do what is required is part of the job. 

If you are having a hard day today, this episode is for you.
