If you try your best, what more can you ask for? This mantra for moms helps you let go of the self-doubt and be at ease knowing you’re doing everything you can.
Do your best is a different message than be the best.
I didn’t always know this.
As a recovering perfectionist, I’ve had to learn that it’s OK to make mistakes and grow from them.
Your best will be different every day and it’ll depend on your self-care reserves. Did you get enough sleep last night? Have you been eating nourishing meals? Self-care can help give you the best chances to do your best.
Even if you have self-doubt, trust that you’re doing everything you can.
