Driving to the Dr.s office this morning I was thinking about my role as a mom. I, like every other mom out there, question of I am balancing it all well. I wonder if my kids are getting what they need from life, or better yet from me. Do they see a woman who is smart enough to know when enough is enough and brave enough to say NO? Do they see someone who is “real” and admits her short comings? Or do they see a people pleaser who will go to great lengths to make sure everyone is happy? I question these things daily.
Today I have a sick little one and am reminded that taking a pause to be mom, comforter, nurse, and more is something that comes natural. The struggles that I have within myself about what I am or am not showing my kids is also normal.
Do you question yourself and if you are “doing life” right? How do you find resolve? We only get one life to live and I don’t want to mess it up…or live a plastic life!
