Ever watched a friend’s Facebook video of their toddler walking and thought to yourself, “Oh no, why is my kid not walking yet? Is he behind? He should be walking by now.”
I’m not proud of it, but I catch myself comparing more often than I would like!
Unfortunately, the comparison game is an endless one and there is no winner. There will always be someone else’s kid who seems to do better than yours, someone else’s marriage that seems more blissful than yours and someone else’s life that looks more put together than yours.
But, believe it or not, YOU are the best mom for your kids! Our children don’t need a perfect Instagram mom or to go on expensive holidays, they need us to be present with them fully and love them extravagantly no matter what. You’ve been placed in your family as their mom and you are enough for them.
Instead of comparing, celebrate other moms and realise that you have so much that is worth celebrating too (Getting out of the house with the kids in record time could be reason to bring out the confetti!)! Be truly happy for other moms around you and imagine the beautiful community of moms we will build!
