Welcome to Episode #10, where you can finally give yourself grace!
Do you ever wonder how to give yourself grace when you continually fail at everything?
If we sat down and had a cup of coffee together, you’d see how similar our struggles are.
My life is busy. Some days, I fix cereal for dinner. The clacking of my dog licking the bowl off the table quickly follows.
My feet constantly step on metal cars lined in rows. It’s easier to ignore when my mind enters a state of exhaustion instead of asking my son to pick them up, once again.
I’ve grown accustomed to the sight of chaos in my house, but some days the weight of life, and motherhood push all the buttons around me. Then I drive myself into an extreme amount of guilt in everything I do.
Those dishes are still sitting waiting to be done. If you were a good housewife those would be finished before your husband came home.
Did you just hear yourself with that tone? If you can’t control those reactions you are going to fail as a parent.
I know you’ve seen this form sitting here a dozen of times this week. Why can’t you get it together? Now it’s going to be late.
The nagging inner voice leaves me feeling discouraged. Do you hear it, too?
Why is Giving Yourself Grace Important as a Mom?
It’s easy to get wrapped up into who we are not, rather than who we are. As mothers, it’s easy to measure our value by what we accomplish, or by how we handle the hair-pulling, head-spinning moments.
But, when we give ourselves a dose of grace we can learn to fully love who we are. We accept to love and forgive ourselves unconditionally.
Sometimes we just need to let go of that to-do list! For some of us we need to trash those harsh criticisms we throw at ourselves. By giving ourselves grace, we learn to love the mom we are, not the mom we envy.
