It’s okay to ask for help momma.
I know the feeling. I want to do it all too. I want to be there for every appointment.
Every momentous occasion.
But, I also have passions in my heart that deserve my time, love, and attention.
Because they make me a better me. I know logically that I can’t save someone from drowning, if I don’t know how to swim. I know logically that I will be a better mom when I take the time to fill my own cup. I know logically that it is impossible for me to be there for everyone, every time.
So why is the mom guilt so real when I take time for myself? Momma. It’s because I care. It’s because YOU care. It’s because WE CARE. About our kids.
And the fact that we care so deeply? Just proves what wonderful mothers we truly are. It truly takes a village to raise a child. And momma, don’t feel guilty about that. Your mom needed help too. And her mom needed help. So ask for help. Accept it. Ask for it. Seek it out. And provide help to others as often as you can.
We are in this together.
