In March, the lessons I learned are:
- That judgments, guilt, and beating myself up are detrimental. When I judge others, take on unnecessary guilt and have unrealistic expectations I am not only negatively impacting myself – as a mom and as a woman, but I am contributing to an environment that perpetuates such destructive behavior for all moms. (I learned that: here, here, and here)
- It is vital to be honest about our feelings, perceptions, and experiences of motherhood. When I am honest and open I feel less alienated and alone. (Enlightenment happened: here)
- Sometimes it is important to just stop and have fun! (Fun times: here, and here)
- It’s not as scary as I thought to “put myself out there!” In fact, I feel stronger and more confident because of it! (Confidence builders: here, here, and here)
