Mom Mantras for When You’re Having a Shit Day

breathe, repeat, breathe, repeat

When you feel like you’re not enjoying motherhood…

I only get one chance at today. I choose to make today a memory full of love and laughter and absurdity, and not a memory full of chores.

One day I will look back and these will be the good ol’ days.

When you feel like there are too many problems…

This is not a problem. It just is.

Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

I will see this experience through my child’s eyes.

My mama instinct is the most powerful tool I have.

When you feel like today, you don’t like being a mom…

Motherhood is a work of love but I don’t always have to feel it.

When you feel like you’re failing and overwhelmed with things to do…

Everything I do is enough.

If all I got done today was take care of my baby, that’s more than enough  (and more than most people care for another person in a week).

I can do anything, but I can’t do everything.
