“If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”
Does that ring true for you?
I know it does for me.
As a mom, I’m acutely aware that my mood impacts the whole atmosphere in my house.
If I’m on edge, the next thing I know, Katie and Luke are on edge. If I’m stressed, it trickles over and Mike gets stressed. If I’m impatient, there’s tension. If I’m sad, there’s worry. If I’m frustrated, there’s friction.
I could go on.
Yet (and I know you probably feel this too), if I’m at peace, if I’m laughing and calm and thankful and patient, somehow my family follows suit.
It’s a lot of pressure to be able to set the tone and impact lives of the people we love like that,
but it’s a privilege too.
And so much about how we feel as moms has to do with our perspective — how we look at things, what we see, and what we miss.
Being a mom can make us feel worn out, stretched thin, tired, searching for more purpose, more peace, more . . . something.
But it can also fill us with more joy than we could ever put into words.
There IS bliss in being a mom, even in the middle of the messy and mundane.
Sometimes, we just need a little help finding it.
Which is why I’m so excited to share this news with you:
I’ve mentioned before that I will be building a Mommy Bliss Team and I’m starting now!
If you want to start on a journey of finding more happiness as a mom, you can apply to be on the team here by March 8th. (free, of course)
You can be local or live far away and you don’t have to have a blog to apply. I’ve got some fun things planned for us, some perks for you, and some surprises in store too!
