Let's Stop the comparison
My followers may remember a photo I put up recently asking us all to remember a picture is just that , a picture that documents a moment in time. It does not show the screaming children right before the shot is captured or the fed up husband asking how many more photos he has to take or the piles of washing that is carefully cropped out of sight.
My biggest passion is to empower women to believe in themselves and the Mother they are. To encourage them to reach for the dreams society has told them are unreachable and to always be transparent and real with the beautiful women that follow our journey. My blogs are often written with tears rolling down my face as I drag up memories or moments that I have struggled through , overcome or sometimes memories that once left their marks across my heart. Why ? To be real! To be honest! To share this crazy journey with you all in the hope that you relate , feel inspired and find hope in the fact that we are all going through similar trials and stages of Motherhood. The fact that we ALL go through them should make us feel United.
Sometimes I scroll through my Instagram news feed and gush over the beautiful babies and Mamas doing amazing things across the world and yes at times I feel the pressure to be that amazing Mother , but guess what , that very Mama at times really can't be bothered going to the park or she yells a little to loud at her 3 year old that has just pour the milk all over the kitchen floor , she stands , tears in her eyes , staring at the piles of washing or her messy floors thinking of how exhausted she feels. But as she tucks in her (4 kids in my case 😱) children and as their tiny hands grip her face and tell her how much they love her and how she is the bestest Mummy in the world she feels her strength renewed and that hard day fades into the past. It is in our DNA , we are designed to get past those hard moments and dwell in the good.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that we will always feel a little pressure but we can't let that run us over. We must be confident in the good we are doing as a Mother and trust our instincts. No one knows your children better then you. We have to have faith in ourselves and the fact that we were given these beautiful gifts to nurture and protect.
From my side of things , I really do apologise if I have ever came across "fake" or "not real" that is never and will never be my intention. I'm am totally 110% behind you and if you need me I'm there for you. As I've said millions of times , we are all in this together and we need to love and support each other.
As always , so much love to you all and your beautiful little ones.
