I find myself constantly talking about perception.
This could be about a friend who seems to have it all.
Or about a business that seems to be thriving, or a baby that seems to sleep and feed like a dream.
But perception is just that! It is not always true sometimes things are crap but you put on a smile and say “I’m fine!”.
I find it hard for many new mums that feel themselves judging there own baby but others and then feeling they are not doing it well or ‘good enough’.
So I am here today to call ‘BULLSHIT’ on it all!
We all need to be kind, caring and non-judgemental.
Some days are just crap and some moments of the each day are brilliant!
Learning a new job- being a mum is hard. You are constantly trying new things and looking for the solution. Some times things work and other times they don’t (a lot like I find running a business).
So thought for the day is saying – I am enough.
Being kind, caring and if your having a bad day talk with your buddies or family about it.
Sometimes saying it out loud helps.
Remember perfect doesn’t exist (its all a perception anyway!).
