Some days it feels like the world is caving in all around. The laundry is overflowing, work deadlines are piling up and the kiddos are going through their own mid-to-only-beginning-life crisis. Many days we are hard on ourselves as moms, wives and women. We aren’t doing enough or something is going wrong.
And some days…..
I feel like SuperWoman! It’s not real often that it happens, but man oh man does it feel good when it does.
I’m reading through Jen Hatmaker’s launch of For the Love coming out later this year. In her book she talks about how we oft feel so guilty as moms. Right? We aren’t doing enough or someone else is doing it better. Why can’t we just celebrate when things are going well?
Last week I told my husband, “I fee like SuperWoman!”
“How so,” he responded.
And not in a condescending way, but in a way makes you say that kind of way.
I killed it at work and felt like a good leader to my team even while traveling a few days out of town. I planned a killer 16th birthday party for Lindsey and did it all in one day. And we ended the week with a wonderful double date night of the hubby and my parents. I felt like a Super Woman.
“And you should feel that way,” he agreed.
I think we as women need to celebrate more the times when we do get it right. We need to celebrate the many hats we wear and the way we wear them well. We need to celebrate the kiddos not out getting arrested. We need to celebrate the 3 hours we sneak in for date night. And we need to celebrate using our gifts and skills in the place we find ourselves.
