Mommyhood sure ain’t easy!
I learned this the hard way- 2 kids later. Initially, I used to fret big time on the need to be a perfect mom, 24*7, 365 days a year. A day when those few morsels of meals were left behind by the child, I used to have sleepless nights thinking it is something I did wrong, that she didn’t eat. When she slept less and woke up too early, I began to worry if I wasn’t creating a conducive atmosphere at home.
Mommy guilt was eating me alive till I decided to put a full stop to it. A change in perspective and a look at the bigger picture helped me understand this better. Mommy affirmations like the one we put up on Instagram #KSPAffirmations help us realise that we are not alone. Every mom goes through this phase. And we need to realize that 2021 is going to be all about the new us!
So how about making a difference at home, first! If we let go, we will feel much lighter and ready to embrace motherhood rather than complaining? I am ready. Are you?
