Be the Best Mom you can be in 2013!
I think every mom’s New Year’s resolution, whether they admit it or not, is to be a better mom. The specifics might be a little different (getting organized, being healthier, having more patience), but the end goal is the same: to be the best mom you can be. So I thought it would be perfect to begin a new parenting series here at B-Inspired Mama to help with just that. Each Thursday, we will feature one mom and her specific resolution to help her “Be the Best Mom” in 2013. Plus she will share her game plan and helpful resources to achieve that specific goal.
How will I be the best mom? Positive Thinking
My New Year’s resolution to be a better mom in 2013 starts with more positive thinking. It’s so easy as a busy, tired work-at-home-mom to get lost in negativity; to feel frustrated and defeated as a mom. But I know that a positive outlook can make all of the difference in my day and the therefore the day of my kids.
My Mama New Year’s Resolution: Think Positive to Be a Better Mom
In 2009, I was battling knee deep in post-partum depression and marital difficulties. I wrote this list of 10 things I love about being a mom to remind myself of my blessings. A lot has changed since then: a divorce, relocation, a new baby, life-changing bariatric surgery, a new fiance. But every aspect of that list remains the same. And while I feel that I am in a better place in my life now, I still need to remind myself to remember why I love being a mom.
When I’m having a bad day; one of those days where I am wondering why in the heck I decided to be a work-at-home-mom. I will look back at this list and remember to think positive and be the best mom I can be.
