Parenting Reminder

Parenting is hard. Whoever says its easy is either lying or not doing it to their full capacity. Parenting alone is another story altogether. My teenager knows how to push a boundary and she also knows how to push my buttons. I love raising her, I love watching her grow, but it pushes me to breaking points at times and I don’t know what the other side looks like. What I hold onto is my faith in knowing that whatever the outcome of any situation, I have no control over it and can only face it as it comes. One challenge at a time. One moment at a time. If I look too far into the future I will turn into a complete wreck.

What amazes me is that whenever I think I’m going to crack, the human that I am raising does the cutest sweetest most random thing to make me laugh, or make my heart melt and even in the middle of the emotions I hold onto those moments of joy, of love that we have in-between the moments of disagreements and discipline.

This post is a quick shoutout to all the parents out there that feel like they are losing the battle. Hold onto the small moments in-between to remind you that you are doing an amazing job. You are doing the best that you can with the tools and the information that you have and you are one of the strongest of the humans walking the earth. Well done for raising those kids and putting in the effort to parent them into adulthood. Keep pushing, keep guiding them, keep your head up and hold onto the little pockets of joy in-between the rest of it.

Love and Light
