Being a single mom is one tough job. We’re always trying to juggle everything on our own. Thus, often time we’re having a hard time coping up with stress. I feel you, mommas. But today, let me share some tips that really helped me on this journey of solohood and hopefully will help you on your journey as well!
Stop feeling guilty.
As a single parent, let’s all admit that there’s always a feeling of guilt toward our children’s situation. When you’re a working mom and feeling guilty of spending less time with your child because you need to hustle every day. Or when you choose to be working at home mom just to be with your kids but still cannot provide everything your kids want.
I see you, it’s really easy to fall into this trap of guilt. But this negative attitude can easily go out of control. So instead of allowing the negativity to control your life, just focus on the brighter side. Focus on the things that you are able to provide for your kids. Recognize yourself and all the things you’ve done for your family. Have a journal with you to keep track of all your accomplishments so you can go easily go back to it when feeling the guilt.
“Starve the negativity, feed the positivity!”
Create beautiful memories.
Enjoy every single moment with your kids. Don’t take each moment for granted, instead always make memories a magical one. Always be present and approachable. Whether you play board games together, play outside, read a book or do some craft together it doesn’t matter as long as you spend time with your child every single day! Trust me, a happy and fun childhoold is only matters for your kids not all the material things you can give them.
I am a stay at home mom, and before I end my night I make sure to prepare the activities for us the next day. So I can prioritize the important things I need to get done for the day and still have time for our quality time.
“Make each moment a magical one, always!”
Have a village.
We all need a help at some time, especially us single parents. As they say it takes a village. And having a community where you can just be yourself, no judgement, just support is really helpful to have a stress free life. I know how hard it is to share your stories and struggles and only ended up being judged. That’s why I created a safe haven, where fellow single moms, empower, support and lift up each other.
For some, anxiety and fears are what sums up their life as a single parent. But it doesnt have to be that way. Yes, it is easy to feel overhelmed with the daily pressure of life. But I assure you, you can do it, we can do it. Always remember to focus on the positive aspects of your life and enjoy every moment with your kids than letting negativity get into your life.
“It may take some time, some efforts and a strong support system to have a stress free life, but it’s achievable!”
So if you need a village, you are much welcome to join our growing family here!
