We are Powerful beyond Measure
All too often as moms we forget just how strong we truly are. Pushed to our limits on what feels like a daily basis, but somehow we make it through and persevere. I have to say that I truly didn’t understand what motherhood was until I became a mom. Then the reality of what it really takes hit me like a ton of bricks. Being a mommy, working full time, trying to run a household, accomplish my own goals and be everything to everyone became very daunting and exhausting at times. Yet, somehow I make it happen even when I have no clue how. I think this truly speaks to just how powerful women are, even when we don’t think we are. I think that all too often we forget to remind ourselves of our power and this can weigh us down more than we know.
So I am here to give you a few tips on how to remind yourself just how powerful you are:
Words of Affirmation
Encouragement comes in all forms for all of us but words of affirmation are something we can all use sometimes. Whether you give words of affirmation to someone, or give them to yourself, they can truly be powerful. I say this because what we think, feel and put out into this world can truly have an impact on what happens to us, around us and for us. So post positive words of affirmation on your mirror at home, in your cubicle at work or in your car. Remember to remind yourself just how powerful you truly are.
Write in a Journal
I have been journaling since I was a very young girl. I have to say that even as a mom this helps me, plus it is a great way to reflect. You can write about what happened that day, how hard things are or even what you want in the future. Then you can look back months now and be amazed at how well you overcame that hard time or accomplished that difficult task.
Don’t Neglect Yourself.
As moms we all need some “me” time to be able to recharge. Don’t neglect this. We are powerful creatures that truly do have super powers but even superwoman needs a day off sometimes. I myself take this tip to heart because as a new mom I really put myself last so much for so long that I had to do some soul searching to be able to know who I am as me and not just as a mom.
Ask for Advice.
Sometimes no matter how powerful or strong you are you need advice. Don’t be afraid or too stubborn to ask. We are all learning as we go and it doesn’t hurt to get someone else’s perspective. Sometimes it is just what you need to see the issue in a different way. I myself surround myself with people who are much different from me and that tell me what I need to hear not what I want to hear. This helps give me the perspective to truly see things from all angles when necessary.
Stay True to Yourself!
Know you are powerful in your own way and that your power may not be the same as others. Perhaps my strengths are not yours and vice versa. Knowing what you’re powerful and strong in can be essential to knowing when to call in the troops for backup. This can also help you really work on the things you feel you fall short in and work to get better at them.
These tips are just a few ways of how you can remind yourself of you power. In the end all that matter is that you know that you are strong, powerful and not alone. As moms we are all learning as we go and we are all facing some kind of challenge each and every day. This is why having a community of mothers to encourage, embrace and share your struggles with is an amazing gift. We are all powerful beyond measure and no one can tell us different.
