Becoming a Mum can be a tough change! Going from focusing on yourself, your learning, your career, etc. to having a little person make huge demands on your time and resources is challenging, it can feel like your life has been turned upside down (at least that’s what I feel some days). But I know that from the time I was little I’ve wanted to be a Mum… so am I being the best Mum that I can be?
It’s hard to know whether the choices you make with your children are the right or wrong ones… I think most parents only have clarity in hindsight (which doesn’t help them at the time the decision needs to be made). But that’s not really what I’m talking about when I ask if you’re being the best Mum you can be… It might be better to ask, how do you view your role as a Mum? Is your view of motherhood different in public and private? There was a great guest blog on this topic over at Desiring God. I highly recommend all you Mum’s out there read it!
Personally I know that kids can see right through any lie you send their way, so the article really challenged me to reflect on how I view being a Mum! And not just the way I think I should view being a Mum! It made me reflect on what message I send to my son through my actions… do my actions each day communicate to him that I see motherhood as my calling?
I challenge each of you to reflect on your priorities in life and how you view motherhood!
