142 – Thank you Mama Claus

Hey mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. You know how Santa Claus gets all the things for Christmas and everything that he does, you know, the gifts, getting everything set up flying the sleigh and doing everything…I really think that Mrs. Claus is behind it. You know, she’s the one organizing the schedule, she makes sure that Santa has some snacks packed, she makes sure he has directions to go where he needs to go. All the presents are wrapped. She’s doing all that behind the scenes things that a lot of people really just don’t recognize and appreciate. But you know what? I see you Mrs. Claus. And I appreciate you. Mama’s Daily Dose is… I see you Mama Claus. Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted. 

Mama Claus, I see you, I see all that work that you were putting in all that thought into the gifts, all the shopping for the gifts, all the wrapping, all the organizing, all the cooking, all the baking all of just that everything. And it can be difficult, it can be super overwhelming. And you can feel like you just don’t have a lot of help. Because it’ll just take longer to try to explain to somebody else, what that thought process is in your head, what organization you have going on, other than just doing it yourself. And you know what, sometimes it is okay to just get that stuff done by yourself and get in the zone and get the things done. But other times, we do need to ask for help. And I’m sure Mrs. Claus asked for help. I mean, look how many elves she has in the workshop. So you know what, recruit some elves to help you out. But even with the help of the Elves, I know you were doing a lot of the heavy lifting, and you are taking on a lot of that burden. And I just want you to know that I see you and I understand you. And I appreciate that. And your family appreciates it too. Whether they say it or not, you are very much appreciated. And your struggle is seen and also understood. 

Mama, I know you take a lot on throughout the year and even more in this holiday season. So the action I want you to take today is to just appreciate yourself. Just tell yourself, thank you and that you are appreciated because the real appreciation that you need comes from yourself. But you know what’s really awesome too is when you hear that you’re appreciated. So go out and you see another moment just say “Hey, I see all that work that you’re doing and it’s appreciated. And I see you and I know what it feels like and I am right here with you.” And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
