Get Rid of Guilt

Get rid of guilt is the perfect title for this blog because that's all I want to remind you of. 

Woke up with mama guilt today....

You know where you wake up thinking of all the things you're not doing so great at?

I was working too much even while I was trying to parent yesterday...
I haven't called people back...

I haven't written this week's blog yet...

We had takeaway for dinner last night because I couldn't be bothered cooking...

I forgot that my son had Futsal training and hadn't washed his gear...

I was on my phone too much (again)....

So I took a dose of Mumma Magic and then everything changed.
I realised I was actually doing pretty well.
At least my work enables me to work from home so even if I wasn't fully present all the time, at least I'm here.
Work contacts and friends understand if I'm late returning calls surely? We are all in the same boat.
Who cares if my blog comes out a week later that I first planned? 
The kids loved getting takeaway and it gave me some extra time to sort some stuff out that would have left more open tabs in my brain to wake up with today.
My son didn't care that his gear wasn't washed....I mean he only wore it for an hour last time...
I'm going to keep working on the phone thing....

At least my guilt has nothing to do with whether my kids will eat today. Whether they will have clean water or be safe from the elements today like some mummas from around the world.

Guilt is a thing we all suffer from no matter who we are, but shifting it as soon as it arises is important. We don't want to base any future actions on guilt from yesterday.
It's just an emotion to point us towards some awareness or maybe bettering ourselves.....or simply teaching us (eventually!) that who we are and what we do is good enough.
And that our good enough is actually perfect right now.
Hope you're with me?
Thanks for being perfect 'just as you are' alongside of me!
