“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have 2 hands?” When Milton Berle said this, he hit the nail on the head, am I right ladies?
I mean, seriously, I have 4 kids and I don’t think 10 hands would be enough…
If you’ve been around here very long, you’ve probably heard me say this more than once, “Mommin’ ain’t easy.”
For real, I have amazing kids, but things are always crazy around here…
That’s why I started loveYOUmore in the first place.
I needed my own little place to escape…something that was just mine.
And though I started down this path for myself, another HUGE benefit of having this little corner of the internet is that I get to encourage moms like you.
I want to help you rock life FABulously…to help you become ONE….FAB….MOTHER.
What is oneFABmother you ask?
She’s…Wonder Woman…Queen of Everything…the one who does it all… she’s YOU.
And while you’re killing it at running your homes, working your careers and raising your babies, I know how easy it is to overlook WHAT YOU NEED.
Real talk: Raise your hand if you spend 99.9% of your time taking care of other people??
Of course you do! You’re a mom…
And that means you spend most of your energy on everyone else and forget to fill your own cup.
Let me gently remind you,
That is why I am on this mission.
To spread a revolution…to tell moms everywhere that self-care doesn’t have to take lots of time or money, and bottom line????
Self-care isn’t selfish.
Because when your cup is full, that means you can pour into everyone and everything around you that needs your attention.
And that makes things FABulous.
And when things are FABulous, you feel FABulous.
And when you feel FABulous, you’re a better version of yourself.
To help you unlock your inner oneFABmother, I’m going to introduce you to The #oneFABmother Mantra.
And as we go through these together, internalize each one and revel in the oneFABmotherness that they grandly bestow upon you.
Here we go.
1. I am strong, brilliant & beautiful.
You are, ya know. And when you treat yourself that way, others will, too.
2. I am worthy of self-care.
Re-read that. Self-care is not selfish. And you, my friend, are worthy of a full cup. Read more on that here.
3. Taking care of me means I can better take care of them.
We physically can’t live on 100 calories a day…but somehow we expect that our mental and emotional health can survive on scraps.
Remember that when you nourish yourself first, you can better nourish all of the ones who depend on your care.
4. Bad day does not equal bad mom.
We all have bad days. Don’t let those not-so-super moments define you. That is not who you are.
Remember that “The gate of happiness is self-compassion.”
So when you have a bad day or a less-than-pleasant moment, remember that it only defines you if you choose to stay in it. Hold your head up and realize that you are oneFABmother. You’ve got this.
5. I won’t criticize myself, but I will do better next time.
Recognizing a failure is not the same as labeling yourself as a failure. When you mess up, and you will mess up LOADS of times, just acknowledge it and do better next time around.
6. Mommin’ ain’t easy, but I’ve got this.
Being a mom is something we expect ourselves to be great at from the beginning…But the truth is, we are still learning just like our kids are still learning.
We can’t expect ourselves (or them) to be perfect. It takes 10,000 hours to master something…and that’s a lot of mommin’! So just keep at it. It’s a journey.
7. I’m not a regular mom, I am oneFABmother.
You are, you know. So rock it, Momma.
Remember that words are extremely powerful…even the words we use internally. Our words work to either tear us down or to build us up. So make sure your inner and outer dialogue reflects the value you desire to have.
Since I want you to be able to use these words long after you hear these words and go about your day, I made you something.
