5 years ago today. 

In the moment, we are not sure how we will ever do it all. In the moment, we question our every thought, decision, fear, and worry. In the moment we struggle to keep up. In the moment, we feel this phase will last forever. 

"It's hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head" - Sally Kempton

Mothers can be their own worst enemies. More often than not, what we demand of ourselves is someone who is superhuman. And, no matter how hard we try, we can't meet these unrealistic standards. We set ourselves up to fail. 

Celebrate your "super mom" moments! 

Keeping in mind for every photo like this, there are hundreds of undocumented moments that we are less than perfect.😜

Be aware of that enemy in your head, acknowledge it, and release it. You are strength, you are courage, you are kindness, you are ENOUGH, you are LOVE - and that is really what it is about.
