We’re still celebrating Women’s History Month.
No mom wants to be “the mom from hell”. You know, those challenging days when everything seems to piss you off, even then you want to at least seem like a decent mom. Being a “Shero” is a stretch but guess what, anything of value is worth the effort.
Disclosure: Sheros are human. Yes we have bad days. I know this is true because I have days like that myself. As a matter of fact, this post is late because of that very reason. My children are trying me today. On top of that, my husband and the teen girls are gone for the evening.
Get help. Everyone doesn’t wan to be just a mom. With the right connections, you can have both a rewarding motherhood and work life.
You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.‘( Winston S. Churchill)
Let your haters be your motivators. Basically, know that everyone is not rooting for you. Continue to love yourself, family, and life enough to stay focused.
Surround yourself with positive people- Find mentors.
Wisdom does not come overnight. ~(Somali proverb)
Have a reason to succeed learn, learn & learn.Then learn even more.
A Fool And His Money Are Soon Parted –Understand the power of your money
It took God 7 days, calm down a pace your self.
Always be willing to bring something to the table.
A mom who uses force all of the time, she is afraid of reasoning. ~Kenyan proverb – That means don’t be so fast to spank your child, or start a street fight. 🙂
Make & keep your “me time!”
Always look for ways to over produce.
Find a reason to laugh at yourself.
Keep your promise and if you can’t say so early on.
A small glass of wine, a great soy based candle and soft music is ok.
So there’s my growing list. I’m sure I’ll edit it many times as long as I’m a mom. Friday, I’ll share with you four of my top influential women.
