You always want to be the best mom you can be. It doesn’t mean that you have to be perfect. There’s no perfect mom soon you come to terms with that the better off things will be on you and your children in the long-run.
There is no book on how to be the best mother in the world. But if you can be a happy mother who cares about her needs as well as her children’s needs, you will be a great mom. Don’t be stress over your mistakes or break down when you can’t accomplish what you want. You only have to do your best and support your children in all they choose to do and be in life. Reinforce the things they’re getting right and teach them to be happy by allowing them to see you in this light without obsessing over the small things your children are getting wrong.
You can’t be happy the entire day, but you will be happy a lot of the time if you spend time promoting happiness in your life. You’ll be finding things are getting overwhelming depending on the situation, but don’t make them hold you back. You’ll fall apart sometimes and that doesn’t mean you’re an entirely unhappy mother or you are not doing good.
Don’t hide your frustrations from the world if you want to be a truly happy mom. Even the negative side comes out here and sometimes. If you don’t let them come out, it will only make them worse and turn you into an overall unhappy person which we don’t want.
You’re doing your job well and you deserve the recognition if you’re meeting your children’s needs and they are a happy lot of the time. You should be happy and bring out more of that positive and amazing side of you by seeing this side of your children. We think our kids need us more than we need them and things will be the opposite in a mother’s eyes.
You will make mistakes sometimes. But still, your kids will love you and they’re not going to hate you because you are having a bad day or because things aren’t exactly going well at that moment. Even your kids want to see you happy with them and they don’t want you to be obsessed with being a superhero all the time. You are always a superhero even when it doesn’t seem like it.
Just hold your own even if you feel like everything is falling apart as things aren’t always what they seem.
