In the whirlwind of demands and expectations, parents often find themselves juggling an array of roles and responsibilities…especially this time of the year.
As we step into a new year, let's collectively acknowledge the importance of nurturing our mental health and embracing self-compassion as a fundamental pillar of our well-being. Even if you choose not to set intentions around this time of year, I think we can all agree prioritizing our mental health could always use a boost.
Self-compassion isn't just about weathering the storms—it's about tenderly holding ourselves through them. ⛈️ 🌈
It's acknowledging our imperfections without judgment and allowing ourselves the grace to learn, stumble, and grow. 🌱
We won’t get it right every time this year. Nope, not even close. But I think knowing we aren’t alone in this journey of imperfect parenting helps a bit.
What would your word of the year be? Do you make resolutions? (Or, as my 3 year old lovingly told me earlier this week… “Mama, my ‘revolution’ is to have no bad dreams” 🥲)
So here’s to a year of nurturing ourselves with the same love and care we so willingly give to others.
Remember, you are worthy of your own compassion. 😍
With warmth and support,
Abbie & Emily
