inspiration for the doubtful mother
I took a break from social media for a few weeks and let me tell you, that was exactly what my mind and soul needed.
I started following some other mamas on IG to get motivation on homeschooling and just parenting in general & some of their lives seemed SO perfect; their homes are always clean and so minimal, their clothing is freaking adorable, their homeschooling was so interactive and fun looking, and their kids who are always happy — and the imagery was always picture perfect *(pun intended) it almost made me feel as if I weren’t doing enough. #fail
I want to be perfect for you readers, I really do…but that’s not the case. I am just a mom, trying to find the best path for her daughters while trying as hard as I can to enjoy as many as those memories on the way.
Sometimes I feel like I get caught up in the pressures of needing to have the perfect life because that’s all we seem to see on instagram. But everytime I take these little breaks, I become so much more grateful for what I have and am even able to step back and evauluate how I am perceiving myself online. My voice on here becomes more authentic and dare I say, vulnerable at times.

But let me tell you something mama, you are a great mama. Sure use those “perfect families” as inspiration but don’t you dare compare yourself to them. You are a genuine, loving, & kind mama… the fact that you compare yourself to others is sure sign that you are a great one, always aspiring to be the best you can be for the people you love.
When I ask my oldest daughter if she is happy at home instead of going to school, her response is always “of course I am, I have the best mommy in the world who teaches me cool stuff!” Seriously melts my heart every time I hear those words!
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
