**We want to know your superpower** This has been a tough year for my family. I texted this message to my kids today to remind them that they can overcome whatever it is that might be weighing on them.
And after hearing stories from a couple of friends today, I thought about us moms….we struggle, too.
When you have children, you never know what each day is going to bring you. Some days are so easy and fun and your heart just feels like it's going to burst with happiness. We hope for those. We hold visions of those moments when we start our families.
And then there are the moments that blindside us…the ones that leave us so incredibly challenged and full of doubt, and sometimes even knock the wind out of us.
Whether you struggle with post-partum depression, disciplining your unruly child, supporting your child with special needs…whether you just learned of your child's serious diagnosis, or you found out your child is vaping, or you are standing paralyzed in your kitchen because your child needs to see a doctor today and you can't call out of work again…
Your struggle is real.
You are not alone.
Nothing in life is permanent, even the most stressful moments are temporary. Yet they are meant to show us what we are made of, to bring us closer to our reason for existing, a chance to remember why we are here in the first place.
When you are struggling, try to remember to be beautiful. Take a break, take a walk, find laughter with friends, exercise, eat well, read, go outside and take in the sun. Re-fuel. Re-energize. And return.
You are in training, training to be your best and preparing to emerge with a perspective that you didn't have before.
What you once experienced as your struggle will gradually, then suddenly, turn into your strength. Not only will YOU become more beautiful, but you will show your children, and others, what it looks like to be beautiful too.
This is how you make beauty happen…
