Day #273849817 of Quarantine
Hey mamas...can we take a minute and pause from the school work, cooking 5 million meals a week, and the zoom meetings? I know you're juggling a lot right now and with the upcoming Mother's Day weekend - this year tops the charts of "We Are Earning the Mom Title"!
Am I right?!
If you're anything like me, you've had a roller coaster of days while in quarantine...
Play outside days,
Missing friends & family days
Dance party days,
Too much technology days,
Smell the flower days,
Messy days (felt I needed to add that 3 times!),
Winning school days,
Close all the books and cry days.
Friend - you are not alone! These days are totally normal day right now and we're ALL having them!
I love the fourth agreement, from Don Miguel Ruiz's book, The Four Agreements. (If you haven't read it - grab it on Amazon - it's so insightful!)
His message is simple.
Always do your best.
Ruiz explains, "Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret."
How freeing is this!? Maybe on Monday you were a total Pinterest/Marie Kondo/Super-Mom but today you're just struggling to put on pants and make sure you don't eat the whole bag of Oreos.
No matter what kind of day it is today - give yourself grace, give others grace, and just keep doing your best!
Take a breath. Each moment is a new moment.
And who knows - tomorrow night you might even cook a 7-course meal in your little black dress (HA! Who am I kidding!? I don't even know what day it is - we'll be rocking some PB&J again!)
Keep earning your title because you are one incredible quarantine-surviving mama!
P.S. Feel free to save the pic below as your phone screensaver - we can all use the daily reminder!
