Reminder: it’s okay to begin again, and again, and again.

Can I get a do over? 😬

I used to beat myself up over not keeping my kitchen clean.

I had big dreams of being the mom who always wiped down those counters before bed each night.

I let myself feel guilty for a long time about it. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.

There’s nothing wrong with you if you’re relating. There was nothing wrong with me.

What was wrong, was my perception of the situation. I thought it wasn’t okay to let the kitchen get messy in between cleanings.

I thought it was necessary to my happiness to get that dang kitchen clean and keep it that way – like no one lived here. 🤨

Here’s the thing: you’re kitchen doesn’t have to be perfect all of the time – or even everyday – for you to be happy.

It doesn’t have to be perfect for you to be a good mom. (You already are).

It doesn’t have to be perfect.

You can take days off.

You can let it be messy.

And you can begin again, and again, and again.

👇🏻 What are you giving yourself grace to begin again?
