Don't let the mistakes define you Next » 2 of 10 « Prev

So I made a mistake. Mistakes happen, and they don't define motherhood success.

In fact, if a mistake bothers you, then good. It shows that you want to grow, you want to change, you want to be better. Learn from the mistake.

For me? Often it is that counting for just a bit (that I forgot) before I respond or using a kinder tone when I do respond. I also try really hard to learn from the mistakes. Many times it is about me letting go of the things that I think are urgent — email, laundry, and more — and putting down my agenda so that it matches the family agenda.
