Are you tired and feel like you can't go on? Here's 30 affirmations for moms to say to themselves.

I’m a part of an ongoing group text with a close group of friends. We’re all moms with kids similar in age. Our circumstances are different, our stories are different, but we’re all in the “mom” club together. Often times our texts are setting up a girls night or talking about the need to connect. Sometimes, they’re random texts with a funny quote from one of our kids. Other times, it’s a text of desperation when we feel overwhelmed or alone.

Yesterday, I received one of the texts in the latter category. The sum of the text conversation was that we all feel overwhelmed. Here’s the text that started it all:

“Do you guys ever have days where you can’t keep up? Like the to-do list is endless and you can’t even make a dent. Overwhelmed today! House is a pigsty.”

Spoiler alert, she wasn’t alone. We were able to have a long “conversation” via text. Even though we all shared that we often felt that we were drowning, we weren’t complaining.  It became a conversation of encouragement and support.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Guess what- you’re not alone either! It’s so easy to get caught up in comparing ourselves and feeling overwhelmed that we feel like we’re on an island. The expectation we put on ourselves becomes too great and we just can’t measure up.

I’m not going to give you tips. I’m not going to tell you what to do. Today I just want to give you a list of affirmations and/o encouragements. Believe them, print them, repeat them to yourself, do whatever you need to do for you.
