Nurture your nervous system
Last week I had a sick kid at home. I was frustrated. I was tired and more stressed than normal. My nervous system felt it all and my body and mind started to give me signals. Mainly the thoughts of this is shit, im not enough, I’m a shit mother.
Luckily Ive began to learn that those thoughts are not all of me, they are only a part of me. So being aware of those thoughts I can begin to mother myself though them. I can reframe those thoughts to, I am loved, I am doing the best job I can in this moment.
Remember to talk to yourself as you would your best friend!
