My Favorite Mom Affirmations

March 17, 2018 5 Comments

I know, I share a lot about how I manage my days as a mama who struggles with anxiety. I don’t mean to beat a dead horse, but I know so many have these same struggles and not only do I want them to know they are alone. But sharing is my healing, and I hope my sharing can help one of you. Today, I am sharing how affirmations have been beneficial to me

 

So what the heck is an affirmation and why are they so great?

Really, anything you say or think can be an affirmation. An affirmation is defined as “The action or process of something being affirmed” and “emotional support or encouragement”.  So the goal is to focus on positive affirmations, rather then the negative. Affirmations help us open the door to change.The mind is powerful and the more you repeat or hear something, the easier it is to believe.
I choose to say my affirmations outloud each morning,and hard moments throughout my day. Why do I say them outloud? Well, I have a couple reasons. One, saying it outloud is very intentional, it makes me pause for a second and really focus on the words. The second reason, is because I want my kids to hear me say positive things about myself. I even have affirmations that I say with my kids, so they believe positives things about themselves as well.
Obviously there are moments when I may not be in a position to say them outloud. For those moments, I have them on cards, sticky notes, saved on my phone…I try to keep them easily accessible and in places I will see them throughout the day.
When I first started using affirmations, I totally felt like I was lying to myself. I didn’t believe any of these things about myself (sometimes I still don’t). But I am a firm believer in faking it till you make it. So today I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you. Just, maybe they will help you through a hard moment too.

Taking care of yourself is part of taking care of your kids. Its OKAY to put yourself first, so you can give them your all.

Gosh, doesn’t mom guilt just stink?! Let it go, mama, you’re doing great! 
 
Card with Floral design, affirmation text "I forgive myself for being Imperfect. I will let go of the guilt weighing on my shoulders."
 
You are the perfect mama for YOUR children. You know their needs and you do a good job meeting them. At the end of the day, they love your for just being their mama.
 
Card with Floral design, affirmation text "I am what my child needs, I trust my Intuition"
 
Each day is full of its own challenges and it is so hard not to set expectations. I find myself repeating this one over and over, and then reminding myself that there is always a new day tomorrow. 
 
Card with Floral design, affirmation text " I will let go of how I think today should go and accept how it imperfectly happens"
 

Say it a little louder… I AM ONE GOOD MOM!

You are killing it mama, even when it doesn’t feel like it, I promise you are.

I want to know if affirmations help you change your days, or if they are something you think you will try. Tell me in the comments!

    • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

    • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

    • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations

    • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
    • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
