Hi fellow Mummies,
This morning I’ve made time for myself. I’ve sat, with a coffee and had time for conscious reflection.
The past few days I haven’t felt my happiest and I don’t know why, which is frustrating. I’m tired which doesn’t help. My little boy is gaining so much independence and wanting to explore the world (which I love)... but he gets so cross with me when I ask him not to do something. I feel like I’m on the back foot the whole time. I don’t want to be a Mummy that says “no...” what feels like the whole time! It just makes me feel like a terrible Mummy when he’s so cross!
So in an effort to brighten my week, I’m trying to consciously reflect on all the good. I do believe that not every day can be a good day, but there is good in every day. I just sometimes forget to look for it.
So, on the dreariest of rainy days (!), at the start of maternal mental health week, my positive thoughts this morning are...
1) My little boy greeted me with the biggest smile this morning. He was ready for his next adventure
2) We’re both waterproof, so it really doesn’t matter if we get soaking wet from the rain
3) We’re going to try a new recipe for tea tonight.
If you want to share any of your own positive reflections, I’m sure it’d be a great help. Xxx
