They say being a parent is one of the hardest yet most rewarding things we go through in life. So it is no surprise that when we are responsible for these amazing young souls who look up to us with complete wholehearted love, that we often judge ourselves, and the way we are parenting.
When this happens it is important to remember that our children chose us, just as we chose our parents. Before we are born our soul decides what it wants to experience and learn in this life in order for it to expand and grow. We choose everything before we are incarnated from our parents, our lovers, our friends, our life experiences, our blessings and even our hardships and struggles. We choose the complete environment that is going to assist us in learning what we chose to experience in this life.
So when you next doubt yourself as mother, father, guardian or stepparent, remember that that young child you love so dear chose you! They chose YOU!! They chose you for exactly who you are, because you are exactly who they need in this life in order for them to grow and learn.
Are you comparing yourself as a parent to others? STOP!
Are you wishing you had more money so that you could buy your child a better home, education or life? STOP!
Are you wishing you had made different life choices in the past? STOP!
Are you doubting your ability as a parent? STOP!
Stop all the doubting, judging, comparing and sabotaging thoughts; these do not serve you. As long as you continue to be the best version of yourself and love your child, you are doing enough. As long as you are living and learning you are doing enough. Live, learn and love as best you can and you are being exactly who your child needs you to be and so much more.
Everything that happens to you is destined to happen, its up to you how you let it affect you and how you grow and learn from it. You are an amazing being and a remarkable parent; never forget that!
All is perfect.
