I am sure most of you by now have read this article. Don't get me wrong. It was a great article. Ever since I read it though I can't stop thinking about what she said. She talks about at the first all the reasons why we feel like we are failing as mothers and we aren't good enough. Why is it when we see what people have done or what people are doing that WE aren't doing, we feel bad for ourselves.. It just makes me so sad that as a whole, women feel this way. I wish I could change this feeling in every women. Help them understand that they are enough!
Why can't we just see the amazing things we are doing for our family! I always felt like my kids were sent to me for a reason and I have what they need to succeed in life. So I better give them everything I got. They need me not anyone else.
Another Mom doesn't have the same traits as me.
I am the only one (and my husband) that knows what these little guys need.
I am not saying that we don't need help from time to time, but I think that we are built for this.
And we should never second guess that.
I love that she said she was trying. I couldn't agree with her more.
Trying is the best way to put it. If you are trying to be a good Mom to your family that is all they would ever ask for.
I am not saying that I have never felt inadequate. I always want to be better and once and a while I get down, but my Mom did a good job at teaching me that everyone is different and everyone has different talents and to focus on the ones that you have. Those are the ones that make you special.
Coming from a family of OVERLY talented people. It was hard. I always wanted to be like them and be-able to do things like them, and maybe that's where I learned that so early. I had to get over the fact that I was great for who I was.
"you are an essential part of our Heavenly Father’s plan for eternal
happiness; you are endowed with a divine birthright. You are the real
builders of nations wherever you live, because strong homes of love and
peace will bring security to any nation."
I love this Talk by Pres. Uchtdorf he has such powerful words.
I hope all of my friends know this.. I hope all of you know I think everyone one of you are amazing women with so many talents.
and I feel so blessed to know all of you.
