What if I don't want to be more than average? Is that really not Ok? Today we talk about an article that I came across on social media titled, "What if All I want is a Mediocre Life?" This is an article that I feel that I could have written myself. It truly speaks to my heart for myself and my family. I was so relieved to find out that I am not alone; that I am not the only one feeling overwhelmed or even rebellious of what society tells us we need to be or have accomplished by my age or in my near future.
Carolyn Penner is a guest with me again today, and we talk more through living a "mediocre life" through motherhood and how we desire to be more than ok with where we are on our journey through life. We are tired of all of the outside influences constantly telling us that we need to be better, bigger, faster, achieve more, be better leaders; better wives, moms, and daughters. We are tired of always having to have a picture-perfect house and lifestyle. When is enough enough? For us, it is now!
Know that wherever you are in your journey through motherhood that you are enough! You are worthy of being a mom to your children. God has deemed you their mom. You are your kids best knowledge-bearer when it comes to taking care of them. I believe that God gives us the knowledge through the Holy Spirit that allows us to be a good mom to our own children, and no one loves them more than you do. We just need to learn how to listen to that still, small voice, and not be persuaded from the outside world telling us that we are not good enough and that we are doing it all wrong.
Be strong, mom! You CAN do this! I believe in YOU!
