To the woman / Mom…

To the mom on the beach looking at her phone, trying to get some peace.
I see you.
The days are long and I know you are just trying to get some peace while you kids are running around. For not giving a fuck what other people will think of you, that you are not hovering over your kids every minute of every day.

To the mom with dishes piling up in your sink and dirty laundry in your baskets, because you would rather grab a book and your coffee or play with your kids on the floor.
I see you.
Being a good mom or a good wife does not mean you have to spend every hour of ever day cleaning, making sure the house is pristine.

To the mom, to the women, waiting in line at the pharmacy for anti-depressants, or waiting to see their therapist.
I see you.
We has woman and as mothers are human too. You are still coping, you are still winning. You are taking action to the fact that you caught something just wasn’t right, you are being smart and getting ahead of something that could turn really bad. I find to often that people frown upon the fact that you are doing this. That you are weak because of this. Normalize therapy, Normalize asking for help.

To the mom who didn’t loose all the baby weight.
I see you.
A child is such a big and consuming job. You are up every night, this is a 24 hour job. You want to eat that comfort food, do it. Eat all that fucking food. You are a goddess, superwoman that created a human in their body.

The human race is so judgey, we often look at people and scowl because they don’t follow “OUR” personal rules. A lot of people need to mind their own life. As moms we do so much, we have so many fails and so many victories, but every single day we still manage to get up, and keep on going.

Keep being you, that beautiful soul you have.
Much love.
