The World Doesn’t Need More Karen’s or Susan’s — The World Needs YOU, Mama

Where are my hot mess mama’s? The REAL deal. Legit. Take it or leave it, sisters because let me tell you something.

The world doesn’t need more Karen’s or Susan’s or whatever we are calling the “perfect persona moms” these days. The world needs YOU.

So, what are you doing sis? What are you chasing?

Perfection? That’s a dead end. A ticket to nowhere. It doesn’t exist girlfriend. Trust me.

I know we all wish there were more hours in the day. I know you feel stretched and pulled in 500 different directions. I know you feel defeated and tired. Stressed and anxious.

I’m with you; really, I am.

But sis we’re never going to break the cycle if we can’t get past the guilt of yesterday. Think about it. How many times have you used the words, “I can’t” today. Be honest. 20? maybe 50?

Sister this amazing thing happens when we flip our own narrative. Just the other day I was teaching my little man to ride his tricycle. After a moment or two of struggling he looked up, “Mommy I can’t do it.”

“No baby. Listen to me. We don’t say we can’t in this house. You say I CAN.” He mumbled the words I CAN to himself as he peddled. With every few inches gained his voice became louder and louder. He peddled that entire driveway HIMSELF.

My point? Our minds have this uncanny ability to produce what we feed it. You want to tell yourself you can’t? Well then, quite frankly – you won’t. But when you flip the script, when you tell yourself I CAN.

Something magical happens …
