My generation of mothers is obsessed with getting it right. We read all the books, all the blogs, all the articles, all the studies, all the alls. We stop at nothing to figure it out all.
This is hurting us tremendously and I believe is sending many of us into states of panic, depression and anxiety.
Our mothers and grandmothers didn’t do this. They just didn’t. First of all the internet wasn’t at their fingertips. But also, they just lived. They made mistakes, and we are all better for it.
I don’t have all the answers.
I don’t WANT all the answers. Life is about learning. We learn best from our mistakes. Sure, I want to get it right with my kids. But I won’t. And I can’t. So thank God for grace, because I wouldn’t be the mother I am without it.
