FYI: I had a few guest posts go up this week on various blogs. Check them out if you get a chance. I hope they encourage you:

My house was an absolute wreck.
Packing peanuts e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. I desperately needed to mop (still do) and I hadn’t seen the bottom of my sink in two days. My email inbox is in the triple digits and we had cereal for dinner twice this week.
“Ugh…what’s wrong with me?! Why am I the worst mom in the world?!”
Perhaps it was a little “Anne of Green Gables” of me, but I’ve thought it before. Perhaps weekly in moments of self frustration.
Have you ever thought that?
As moms, we can be so critical of ourselves. We want to be better so we constantly look at what we are doing wrong and rarely take the time to look at what we’re doing right.
But the fact is, if you’re taking the time to read blogs about motherhood, then you’re an awesome one. You want to learn and grow.
Tell Us What You Did Right
Today, I want to challenge you to tell us one thing you did GREAT this week as a mom.
Maybe it was:
- cooking dinner
- playing a game with your kids
- praying for your children
- getting out of bed with a smile
- being patient even just once when you didn’t feel like it
- having a good conversation with one of your children
It can be absolutely anything, big or small. I just want you to take time to think about what you do well, because you do A LOT well. No, you’re not perfect. None of us are. But let’s all get in the habit of giving ourselves as much credit as we do critique.
Tell us! What is one thing, big or small, that you did well this week? Click here to share in the comments! (I’ve shared mine there as well).Leave a Comment
