Mama, please look through my eyes today


Dear mama,

Please look at yourself through my eyes today.

You are enough.

I know it is hard right now. You don’t see how you will get through this. You are tired, frustrated, and lost.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Someday soon you won’t feel like this anymore.

You will feel loved, valued, appreciated, treasured, and fully and completely enough.

And I hope that someday comes soon for you because I know what it is like to feel the pain you are feeling right now.

You may have a new baby, a growing child, a teen, or an adult child – we are all together right now no matter what the age of our children.

You are surrounded with love and support, and a world of other women lifting you up on the days that you cannot lift yourself. Even if you don’t see us, we are here cheering you on and lifting you higher.

Fear not for your future because it is bright and full of contentment that is alien to you right now.

Your child will make mistakes, and so will you…and so will every other human on this earth. Mistakes, angst, and struggle create resilient people full of empathy for others that are struggling. These people may need you someday.

But for today, you are enough.

You don’t need to prove anything right now to anyone, except that you are human. Embrace your imperfections, laugh as often as you can, and have faith that tomorrow is a brand new day. A day that you have complete control over.

You are enough.

You are appreciated.

You are seen as more than you see yourself right now.

Please look through my eyes and be kind to yourself…for sometimes, our own eyes lie to us. Our thoughts lie to us. And sometimes others lie to us.

We tell ourselves we can do better, be better, do more, be more.

But trust me…

You are enough.

You are perfectly imperfect and fabulously unique and special.

Your ability to find peace is more powerful than you can even imagine right now.

Embrace your power, ignore the lies, and begin loving yourself.

Please look through my eyes today and remember that no matter what, you are not alone, you are loved, you are seen and…

YOU MIGHT JUST LOVE WHAT YOU SEE!
