When motherhood feels more difficult for you than everyone else.

I felt this way for years but I am slowly learning...

⁣⁣Motherhood is not easier for everyone else but there is a steep learning curve.⁣⁣

We all have different capacities and my capacity in one area may be more or less than another mama’s capacity in that area.⁣ What matters to me, may or may not matter to that mama. ⁣⁣⁣

Mamas who seem to be rockin’ it have often worked very hard to develop habits and systems that serve them well.⁣

We never see the whole story, especially on social media.⁣⁣

So much of this comes down to comparison.⁣ And comparison sucks the joy out of everything.⁣ ⁣Comparison is the thief of joy (Theodore Roosevelt).⁣⁣

Let’s re-commit to keeping our eyes on our own paper and being present wherever we find ourselves today. ⁣

For me, this looks like tackling the task at hand without grumbling or counting the cost and just doing the thing before I talk myself out of it. ⁣⁣What does being present right where you are look like for you this week?
