Motherhood is a beautiful life- changing experience but it often comes with some guilt's attached. It feels really silly admitting it but often I find myself guilty about anything and everything- to begin with I'm just not 'good enough' as a mother!!
Being a mother, you become vulnerable to the world around you and easily fall into the trap of comparing yourself with other so called 'perfect mums' in and around you ,who keep a spotless house being impeccably groomed at the same time, goes out on weekends with husband and is raising perfect kids. And all of a sudden everyone seems to be 'more together' than you and have a 'balanced motherhood' but believe me it is impossible to be doing all this and retain your sanity at the same time. Things do fall apart at some stage and some of us may be better at the act of juggling and balancing things up than others. But truthfully, we are all muddling along down this path of motherhood, we might just be at different stages. And if someone still tells you that Supermom's do exist, 'they are lying big time' .
Comparison has always been the thief of joy and when we get lost in comparing ourselves to others we can lose sight of who we are and what makes as special and unique as a person and more importantly as a mother.
It's really 'OK' to Put off the Saturday morning housework so you can cuddle in bed with your husband a little longer while your baby naps. Take a break from the routine cooking and cleaning work, order your favorite food and spend some time with your kids. Its ok to sleep a little late and perfectly ok to take a break from' being a mom'. Its time to keep aside all the stereotypes and create your own 'brand of Motherhood'.
What it all comes down to is how you feel about yourself. If you are happy with how you look and the life that you live—fantastic! Don’t change a thing. Just remember, you don’t have to follow a set stereotyped rules to be a good mother. Parenting cannot be taught or learned, it comes naturally to everyone out of their own experiences. You can always choose to get inspired by other mothers to become a better version of yourself but never fall down that rabbit hole of comparison. Everyone has their own journey, their own strengths and passions, that’s what makes them who they are and you who you are. So embrace yours and be the mother that you are meant to be and empower those around you to do the same.Goodness knows being a woman is tough enough as it is; why are we making it harder on ourselves by comparing and thinking we should be more like someone we were not created to be? Let’s complement each other and lift each other up in this beautiful journey called motherhood!
