Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breathe and START AGAIN.
Positive Parenting Quotes
Parenting is is hard. Every day we are faced with a myriad of choices and decisions and questions and things that have to get done. We are busy from morning to night. Sometimes we make good choices and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we are calm and connected and sometimes we aren’t. Sometimes we are full of energy and sometimes we can barely make it through the day.
I wish I had seen this quote when my children were young. If I had a “bad” day, one filled with strife and chaos, I would think about it for days. I would go to sleep at night wishing I could turn back the clock so that I could change things. I would feel guilty for the mistakes I made and carry that guilt with me for a long time. This quote would have given me the permission to let it go. This quote would have helped me realize that we all make mistakes, that no mom is perfect, and the best thing to do is to start over.
So…don’t dwell on what you could have or should have done that day. Be gentle with yourself and forgive yourself for any mistakes you may have made. Then, wake up the next morning, take a deep breath and start again. You can’t change what you did yesterday but you can decide what to do today.
Have some fun today!
