I find that sometimes that I have to remind myself that I’m human. That is okay to make mistakes and not be perfect. I find myself struggling to be all to everyone. I want to be a wonderful wife and mother. When I find myself falling short in either of those departments I am highly disappointed in myself. I’m not okay with not being at the top of my game. I realize that I’m never going to be perfect but I realize that I want to be as close to it as possible. Which turns into me putting more pressure on myself than anyone else. I just want to think about everything I’ve done and say that I’ve tried my best and that I gave my all. I want my children to look back at their childhood and say that they have a great Mommy and for my husband to think about all the great times we have had and smile.
I am now realizing that to be the best that I want to be that I have to realize I’m human and cannot be everything to everyone all the time and sometimes I have to focus on myself and put myself first. I also have to realize that I will make mistakes and try my best to learn from them. This will hopefully make me into a better me. I think that if I stop taking my mistakes so hard that they will not become an easy weapon to use against me. I sometimes wish that I had super human strength to where I can be there for everyone and to be able to do what I need to do. I plan on working on that for myself. So that I can be a better mom and wife.
No one is perfect! All we can do is be the best we can be at that moment! Kids don’t know we are perfect! they just love mom! ( advice I got from my mommy!)

We do have to forgive ourselves. I know we strive to do our best but we fall short sometimes. I think the beauty of it all is that we usually get another chance
