Motherhood is challenging no matter if you’re a first time mum, working mum or stay at home mum and becoming a mother, whether it’s your first or fifth, is a huge adjustment, with a very steep learning curve.
It can seem so overwhelming and it’s easy to neglect our own self-care and feel like our efforts aren’t enough. The day to day pressures and maintaining a life of our own becomes a juggling act and it’s so easy to lose ourselves.
So often we take on so much and overextend ourselves which can easily lead to exhaustion, anxiety or even full on burnout, sometimes without us even realising it.
But motherhood is so beautiful; powerful and positive affirmations are a great way to reinforce that.
Take the opportunity each morning to give yourself grace by reciting these morning affirmations to get your day started off right and give yourself permission to let things go when you need to. Every day is a new chance for growth, acceptance and joy.
