Without trying to scare a young lady who’s not yet a mother, or even a new mother, let’s talk about facts. Motherhood can sometimes seem like a downhill slide, from the lack of enough sleep to the sometimes bad days with your little one. So I thought it would be good to share some of the positive daily affirmations that will help a mom out there boost her spirits!
Positive affirmations for moms
Not every day is the same
As I alluded to above, there are times when our kids have bad days. On those days, there might be a lot of crying and more winning than usual.
Such bad days leave you as a parent feeling down, disappointed, and at some point angry.
Dear, mom, we are in this together. I bet you I’ve got such days too!
That being said, I’ve learned to use the phrase, “Not every day is the same.”
Such a simple phrase, but with a significant impact, I must say!
This affirmation helps to stay calm, composed, and positive, no matter how bad the day seems.
I'm the best mother for my child/children
Sometimes when we are new to this journey of motherhood, we fall into the temptation to compare ourselves to others.
And to our surprise, we see a difference in parenting from other moms.
Remember, while you’re a new mom, you are still trying to figure out how to do things and adjust to the new lifestyle.
That’s why what we see can knock us down when we compare it to what we experience ourselves.
But please, dear mother, remember that no one can take better care of your child than you.
Lift your shoulders high and stay positive because no matter what, that innocent baby is calling you the best mother in the world.
I am not a superhero
Mama, you can’t do it all.
I can tell you that this was one of my main problems in the first months.
As a woman who loves to clean, organize, write, and craft, I felt like I had lost who I was.
Later, I learned that I couldn’t do everything. I have to plan and prioritize, and so do you.
At the beginning of motherhood, every mother should focus only on healing and her little one. That means taking time to rest, eat, nurse, and other necessities that your baby needs.
If you can get help’ don’t be afraid to ask for it.
Suppose you don’t have anyone nearby, no problem. You can still do it without burning out.
Do what you need, little by little, without overworking your body. But, all in all, don’t forget, “you are not a superhero; you’re a normal human being who needs to have a break and rest.
I am still important
Speaking of daily positive affirmations for moms, this is one of those I wouldn’t dare forget.
Why is that?
I’m sure you can agree that all moms (especially first-time moms) feel like I don’t have time for me.
A Simple thing, with big consequences. This slight feeling causes us to lose confidence, lack self-esteem, and even degrade ourselves.
But mom, you still matter. Take the time to do what makes you happy and makes you feel whole again.
Please sit down and ask yourself, what is it that you feel you have lost. If you have answers, at least once in a while, create time and do it.
Unconsciously, you’ll begin to feel good again and embrace momlife with joy.
Acne, excess weight, stretch marks, and much more can come along with motherhood. But remember, you are beautiful just the way you are!
Please, don’t wait to hear it from someone else.
Push yourself every day, look at yourself in the mirror, smile and tell yourself that you are beautiful.
I hope these five positive affirmations for moms have been helpful to you. Share them with other moms out there, and let’s inspire each other.
