Mommy Confidence: 8 Easy Steps to Reclaiming Balance, Motivation, and Your Inner Diva by Kimberley Clayton Blaine, The Go-To-Mom, needs to be next on your reading list!
Even when times get difficult, whether due to economic or unfortunate circumstances, Blaine states, moms need to accept and find peace in their lives. There is always time for change. She says, “Children learn invaluable lessons when they see their mother toughing it out and still being a cheerleader of life.” Children inherit maternal strength and confidence.
“Taking time off is essential for good mothering,” Blaine explains. “No one really ever plans on being a martyr-mom. We all know that in the end that this type of mom will eventually burn out and her children may witness her unravel.” Taking time off from chores, work and family can be very ‘mommy enhancing.’ A happy woman makes a happy mom.
“Mommies do a great job managing their families and children,” and Blaine encourages moms not give up hobbies and activities that invigorate them. “I see mommies waiting to pursue their dreams until their children are much older, but then it’s too late.” Blaine believes moms should pursue their dreams now—it is never too late to be your children’s best role model by showing them how you take care of yourself and actively seek optimal well being.
