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. You deserve to feel fulfilled, you deserve to wake up and be excited. And you deserve all of that. Right now, no matter who you are, what background you come from, what you want to do, you deserve it. And Mama’s Daily Dose is… Even privileged moms deserve to feel fulfilled! Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
I’m not huge on labels. But I certainly could be categorized as a “privileged Mom.” I have been blessed with many things – as we talked about yesterday. I’ve also worked my butt off for a lot of things. But no matter what you have, where you’re from, the color of your skin, no matter what, you deserve to feel fulfilled, you deserve to enjoy life, you deserve to go after what you want. It doesn’t matter who you are, we are all humans, and we are all born worthy.
Everyone has their struggles. And we will never know, another person’s full struggles because we don’t know their full story. On Instagram, someone had commented on my video that I talked about, moms feel like they are missing something, and you deserve to find that missing piece. And they commented, “I hope you never know real struggle, just another privileged mom, not enjoying what they have.” And I’m not gonna lie, there are people out there with bigger struggles than I’ve encountered in my life. But that doesn’t take away from your struggle, either. We all have struggles in life, we don’t know what everyone else is going through. But what I do know, is that everyone deserves to live the life that they want to live, to feel fulfilled, to wake up every morning, excited, and just enjoy the moments and enjoy life… no matter who you are, if you’re a privileged mom or not. You deserve to feel fulfilled, and you deserve what you want.
Mama, your action today is to just realize that we don’t know the full story behind everyone and everything. So the next time you see something on social media or you see a person or you come across a situation, just remind yourself that you don’t know the full story. And everyone doesn’t know your full story, either. But what we can agree on is that everyone deserves to lead a happy, fulfilled life (at least I hope we can agree on that!) And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
