The bad days don’t define you Mama



Mama... we know it gets hard, we also know that some days 'hard' is just the beginning! There are days where you feel like there is no way you can make it to the next-- or that maybe you aren't good enough. Some days it feels like no matter how hard you try-- the work is never done.


But Mama, those days do not define you. They do not define who you are as a person OR as a mother. What defines you is how you react and move forward.


It's okay to have these days-- in fact it is normal! It would be alarming if you didn't have such days! You must believe that better days are coming and everything negative happening is simply a single moment in a lifetime---


It may feel like all you can remember are the bad days, but your baby will not. Your baby will only remember you being there for them and loving every ounce of them.


In the end, you are their constant no matter where you are at in your own life. This does not mean you have to be perfect by any means--- Why? Because being YOU is perfect enough.


Think of being a mom like you are training for an event. Yes there are days where you don't think you can step onto that track, or the pool deck, or the field, or wherever----without falling over from sore muscles, fatigue, etc. But guess what? YOU DO IT ANYWAY! Because the reward is far better than the pain of those days.


The next day you may beat your best time, or jump your highest, or score the most goals... Or your baby will hug you and hold you. Your baby will learn to talk and write and read and run! These are the rewards, the payoffs for all of your hard work. It is WORTH it!


So mama, don't get down on yourself, you are HUMAN! You love like a human and you also hurt like a human, but most of all ---you heal and grow like a human. We are amazing, and YOU are amazing.


Here at Mamas Maternal Health we just want to say, just keep doing you mama--you've got this! And for those days where you feel like you can't go at it alone-- we are here to be that guide so that you never feel alone. We want to lighten your day when you feel like its weighing to heavily on your shoulders. Support systems MATTER. No one achieves anything without help--- even Wonder Woman had the Justice League... Join us today.


Until next time!
