good enough

Only three inches by three inches but full of power. For mothers out there who are doing the best they are good enough. For anyone out there who is doing the best they can.. It's so easy to get caught up in it all especially with all the beautiful images of motherhood and family life that are shared on blogs and instagram, that I too am guilty of looking at and judging myself by comparison.
 You give everything to your child but often it doesn't feel good enough and leaves you utterly depleted...and the energy you use up being a mother leaves little for other areas in your life, making you feel the guilt of also not being a good enough wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, artist, the list goes on. So I made myself this little reminder, on a scrap of dirty old frayed quilt. Even when I think I'm not...I am good enough. I hope it helps you too.
