Mama Said

Mama. I see you. βœ¨

I'm holding space for you.

You're tired.
You're stressed.

The house makes you anxious, because there's not enough hours in the day to do it all.

You're feeling lonely.

Friends? What are those?
You time? That's a thing???

You give so much to everyone, while asking for so little in return - if you get far enough to ask. Your meals are almost always cold because you're making sure everyone else's is hot.

You're getting such little sleep & still taking on the world with a smile. Because Mama, you're super woman. 

You feel like no one else sees what you put in. You feel like no one appreciates but everyone seems to notice when you stop. You have everyone else in the house's problems on your shoulders - so when is there time or energy for your own??? πŸ˜© I know some days are harder than others. I know some days you pretend you're okay, praying for the tools to get you through. I know you feel investing in yourself or treating yourself doesn't hold value - that the money could be better spent elsewhere.

& the laundry. OMG the laundry.

Mama, I see you...

Mama, I say...

Take some time for you. However you have to.
Appreciate your own damn self - you're amazing πŸ’–- even if no one tells you.

Mama, I say...

Make yourself a hot meal, at least once a week. You deserve a good meal just as much.
( OH & who needs clothes πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ )

Mama, I say... 

You're valued. Even when you feel you're not.
Someone is holding space for you.
Even if that's only me. πŸ₯°

Mama, I say...

Invest away. You can't pour from an empty cup. Your investment will return its weight in gold - simply by lifting your spirits.

Mama, I say...

You ARE enough - even if you're made to feel like you're not. Your feelings matter too - so keep sharing them. 

MAMA I SAID YOU ARE WORTH IT.

& NOW I SAY 

SHARE OR TAG A MAMA WHO NEEDS A LITTLE EXTRA LOVE. πŸ’– 

SO we can hold space for HER too.
Xoxo
