Visualizing your goals carries through on this same concept.
What I do well as a mom.
I’m good at multi-tasking. For example, a typical evening would involve cooking dinner, replying to emails, thinking of things I need to do the next day and listening out for my daughter to wake up. I’m also good at focusing and devoting personal time to my daughter when she invites or asks me for her attention or to play with her without succumbing to distractions, like answering my phone.
What I learned from another mom.
When it comes to raising children, people will judge you no matter what you do, so you might as well do what feels right and makes you happy.
Lesson learned from my child.
There is so much pressure on women to be these perfect moms and it’s so easy to doubt one’s abilities. My daughter teaches me every day that I am good enough. When she gave me her first big smile, I knew I was doing just fine. And at the end of the day, if your child is healthy, loved and happy, so are you.
Successful motherhood moment.
When your new baby is placed in your arms for the first time, you have a lot to learn about one another. A successful motherhood moment for me was the first time I knew intuitively how to meet my child’s needs. In this particular case, it was the first time I knew exactly what to do to calm her crying. It’s a great feeling.
Mom I admire.
My mom, Susan. My dad was diagnosed with cancer when my sister and I were very young and I admire the way my mom created a warm, nurturing household, while taking care of him and working full time. I especially admire her patience and positive outlook on life.
