Surely there are moms out there who feel this way too and KNOW you are doing a great job. I stop beating myself up about it years ago although there is the occasional bad day. I always tease my kids that i am going for the “Worst Mom” award and they either agree or disagree depending on their moods….(LOTS of hormones in my all girl house….my poor husband). BUT they do know they are loved and do not want for anything.
So I may not be getting the “best” mommy award or winning a bikini contest but I am comfortable in my own skin and determined to reach my goals both in my health and business. I am still finding my way but definitely see a light at the end of the tunnel and will not stop till I get there.
