Hang in there, you’ve got this! I am sure you have heard that before. Seriously, I want to encourage you to be your best. When you are exhausted and you feel like you can’t take one more step; pause, breathe and have confidence in yourself. I know- easier said than done. If I hadn’t been there before I would agree. I have been to the end of my rope and thought, no more! The 2 year old tantrums, the emotional 5 year old, the teenager with, well you fill in the blank here, the husband that wants something that you don’t think you have the energy for. The time is precious with our family. Does parenting get easier? Well on some things, yes; but other things become more difficult. So maybe you need to take 10 minutes to yourself, or let the house be a mess for tonight so you can get some extra rest. We are all Super-Moms in our heads. To be honest some days my cape looks great at the end of the day and other days I only have a thread hanging on. When mustering up strength when it seems as though it’s not even worth it; I can tell you it is, give it every last bit you have. We need to show our kids we are stronger than they are and that we can muster up the strength when things look impossible. What I mean by this is we always have to show them we will win every battle that they come at us with. This does not mean we can’t take a break and get our sanity/energy rebooted. This means we are warriors and will always fight for what is right, this includes teaching our kids 100% of the time that they have rules, manners, and we are in charge.
So again-hang in there, I know you can get through today and tomorrow you will wake up with more energy and power to accomplish another day.
