I originally shared this when I first became a mom -and is one of my daily mantras. .
“If you are anything like me, your life is organized by your 'TO DO' lists. I make a new one every day and feel so accomplished when I can check everything off of it. Well, ever since having Audrey, I have a hard time feeling like my 'to do'list is never ending. (I know, welcome to motherhood, right!?) because I'm so dependent on my 'to do' lists to keep me organized and feel accomplished - when I literally don't get to make a single check off them during the day, I find my self feeling stressed, unaccomplished, worthless...all things I should NOT be feeling about myself. .
Now I was born a Pollyanna for a reason, so I can get myself out of this mind set. Starting today, my ‘to do' lists are changing to 'TA DAAAA' lists! Ta da, I fed my baby! Ta da, I changed my baby! Ta da, I clothed my baby! Ta da, I got five minutes of work done! Ta da, I fed myself! Ta da, I worked out for 30 minutes! Ta da, I made my bed! Ta da, I made breastmilk! Ta da, Ta-da, TA DAAAA!! .
Today I am amazing, and accomplished and of worth! My 'to do' lists still exist - but they are now there to now there to only make me feel fabulous when I achieve even the smallest thing (which I know to my tiny human, is always a huge thing)... Here's to motherhood! Here's to TA DAAAAAA's!!” #momlifebelike #motherhood #3monthsold #amazing #accomplishments
