Give Yourself a Break Day!


I am declaring today Give Yourself a Break Day!! This is for all the moms out there who tell themselves "I need to be more lenient. I need to be more strict. I need to hug more. I hover to much. I need to praise more. I need to praise only when it is meaningful. I need to allow him to make his own mistakes. I need to warn him of the consequences more. I need to try one more doctor. I take him to too many doctors. I need to pray more. I need to do more. My house is not clean enough. I shouldn't worry so much about my house." Today.... tell yourself you are doing all you can. You are doing your best. Stop trying so hard and trust God today. Give yourself a break today! You are an excellent mom!

Why, oh why do we do this to ourselves?! I'm loving your idea.

"Give Yourself a Break Day" aka "Stop Bashing Yourself Around Day"

Good call.

LMAO!!! Oh did I need this post yesterday. I second guessed myself into some serious health issues. At least that is what I am blaming them on. Thanks for reminding us that everything we think we do wrong, someone else thinks they should be doing.
