Hi friends! Today’s post is going to be a little different because I have had the opportunity to write for Her View From Home again!
Last month I wrote a story about the day my son told me something that changed my mothering forever. If you haven’t read this lesson my 3-year-old taught me, go read it now. I’m confident it will affect you as much as it did me.
Today’s post is about not waiting to be happy in motherhood. Not putting it off for a “better” or “easier” phase. Not wishing away the hard years.
In this post, I make a confession that may shock you or even make you judge me a little, but it’s the honest truth. And I had to come clean.
But I also share the revelation I had and the mindset that helps me embrace each and every single phase of motherhood — even the ones I don’t particularly love. The truth of the matter is it’s up to me to be joyful. It’s not my kids’ responsibility or place to make me happy. And I intend to do everything I can to make the most of every season.
Because I don’t want to wait to be happy.
