189 – “I don’t think I would have been a good mother…”

Hey Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose, the short, actionable podcast for mamas who want more. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s daily dose is a quote from Julie Christie, who is a British actress from the 60s. And she said, “I don’t think I would have been a good mother, being a parent brings immense responsibility. It’s a Herculean task, it would almost be too much for me.” Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.


Becoming a mom becoming a parent is a huge responsibility, probably the biggest responsibility you have undertaken in your life. And I just want you to take a moment to applaud yourself for that not everyone can do it. And that’s fine. There’s plenty of people out there that don’t want to become parents. It’s not an easy job. Yes, it is super rewarding. But the responsibility and the fear of more responsibility, with everything else going on in our lives, like we talked on the MamAffirmation on Monday, is immense. It is a really, really big task.


And just take a moment today, to congratulate yourself for doing it for taking on this task and being kick a** at it.


Mama, your action today is just to thank yourself and look at this huge task that you have taken on and you continue to take on every day. Because it’s big. Being a mom is big. It’s a huge responsibility, and you are doing it and you are doing an awesome job at it. And if you haven’t already, head on over to allyoumama.com Take that free quiz: “What the f**k do I want now” and get a little insight on what it is that you really want. Do you want to be happy in this life? Do you want to have happy kids? The way you do that is by doing what you want; doing things that bring you joy. Whatever you exude whatever attitude, being… that you take on that is what your kids are going to pick up on to. So head on over take the quiz. Allyoumama.com takes about two minutes and 90 sitcom mom references what more could you want? And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
