Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday! We are right back at it in the beautiful month of May with another blog. Continuing our Mother’s Day celebrations, this week’s blog is about single motherhood and some tips to become more successful at it. Before we continue though, I would like to say a huge thank you to all mothers. You are all amazing and beautiful!
Single motherhood is hard. Taking care of a child or multiple children all on your own? Is a handful. The first tip I have for you is to create a successful support group. It is healthy for your children for you to have a healthy support group who can help you with your needs. Realize you are doing a job for 2 but it’s only you. With a healthy support group giving you the extra hand, you will need along this journey will help you in the long run.
The next tip I have in store for you is to create a structured system that works for you and your kids. Plan around your job, your child’s education, events, or anything else. Make your system adhere to timeframes, personal standards, and life itself. I know this was a big help for me! I work throughout the week but set a day aside to relax and just breathe. Organizing plays a major role in being successful in parenting alone.
With a successful group of people and an organized schedule in your household everything should flow easily and effortlessly, at least that is what we hope for. But hey, have a plan anyways!
One last tip for single motherhood that I have for you all is to be yourself! Nobody is perfect. Nobody does parenting completely right. Execute what you think are the best decisions for yourself and your children and go with it!
Extra bonus: Don’t forget to have some fun in life. Remember, you still must live, laugh and love. Just because you are a single mother it doesn’t mean stop living, it just means you have to tweak a few things.
Deep breathe, pat yourself on the back and realize you are winning in this lane! Until we speak, live out loud, love freely and laugh daily. Have a great week everybody! Don’t forget to smile at a stranger because you never know who you may inspire to show up!
