To Every Exhausted Mama Out There, You Are Enough - Today's Mama

To the mama who is doing your best to just get through one day at a time. 

You are enough.

To the mama looking in the mirror struggling to love the person staring back at you.

YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Mom-Struggling-819x1024

To the mama who is working tirelessly to just keep a roof over your family’s head and food on the table.

You are enough.

To the mama who has locked yourself in the bathroom, needing just one moment of quiet as you let the tears roll down your face.

You are enough.

To the mama who is drowning in endless washing and housework.

You are enough.

To the mama who hasn’t left the house in days because it all feels too much.

YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Tired-Mom

To the mama struggling to connect with your child.

You are enough.

To the mama who feels alone, regardless of how many people are in the room with you.

You are enough.

To the mama who no matter how hard they try feels like they aren’t good enough.

YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Exhausted-Mom

To the mama who is just exhausted.

Exhausted from the lack of sleep.

Exhausted from the constant demands.

Exhausted from the endless worry.

YOU DEAR MAMA ARE ENOUGH.

Motherhood has its seasons, and some are easier than others. Some days we will feel like we have it all together and others we don’t.

And that’s okay.

You’re not alone.

Motherhood is not easy. Motherhood is a journey.

RIGHT NOW, IS ONE OF THOSE REALLY HARD, REALLY EXHAUSTING, AND REALLY OVERWHELMING SEASONS.

But as seasons do, it will pass.

And in the end, it will all be worth it.

You only need to look back to see how far you have already come. How each day you have shown up.

How each day you have given it your all.

Day after day.

No matter how exhausted you have been.

DON’T DOUBT YOURSELF, MAMA.

You are enough.

You only need to look at your child, to see their little eyes looking up to yours to know how much love they have for you.

To see that they are your biggest fan.

You only need to feel your child’s little arms wrapped around you to know you’re their comfort and safe place.

That you are their protector.

You only need to hold your child’s little hand in yours to know that they love you unconditionally, so much so they would follow you blindly anywhere that you lead them.

You only need to listen to your child to know that they trust you enough to tell them all their problems.

That they want to share all their wins with you.

You only need to listen to know that you are their confidant.

That you are their best friend.

You only need to watch your child to know that you are their teacher.

That they want to be just like you.

MAMA, TO YOUR CHILD YOU ARE PERFECT. TO THEM YOU ARE EVERYTHING.

To them, you are more than enough.

And that dear mama is all that matters.

You. Are. Enough.
