Do you want to become a better mom? Do you ever struggle with mom guilt?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve had fleeting moments where you feel like kind of a crappy mom. Maybe they are more than fleeting.
If you’ve ever felt that way, you’ve probably had some of these thoughts about yourself:
- I feel like a bad mom.
- Why do I keep losing my temper?
- I wish I were a more fun mom.
The average person has a total of about 70,000 thoughts per day. If I had a dollar for every less-than-stellar thought I’ve had about myself and my parenting, I would be rolling in it, y’all.
You too? Well, you know what?
Our thoughts can trigger our emotions, which then drive our actions. That means those sneaky little Debbie-downer thoughts can take your whole mood down, which doesn’t exactly make for a great day, does it?
Even if you don’t really struggle with frequent negative thoughts, I’m willing to bet there are at least one or two that seem to show up when you’re having “one of dem days.”
ANY thought you’re having that isn’t true, kind, or helpful is doing you absolutely NO favors and simply has to go. How do you get rid of it? You replace it with another thought–one grounded in truth.
I’ve found that practicing daily affirmations has done wonders to improve my self-esteem, my general mood, and my overall motherhood experience. If you want to be a better mom, you need to feel like a better mom, which comes from thinking better mom thoughts.
