How to Embrace Every Moment of Motherhood

We're human, so we do need validation sometimes, but there are no trophies for being a mom. The job is selfless, but if we dig deep, we will see that the great reward is finding the strength and beauty we never knew existed inside of us, one moment at a time. Sadly, the more time I rack up parenting, the more I realize that we probably judge our parents for their mistakes rather than their successes. The idea that my children will one day be adults and able to critique my actions petrifies me, but that's the greatest thing about being a mom. You get to challenge yourself to become your absolute best.
