I can’t do this anymore!

This is for you!

Yes, you. You’re about to burst into tears because you had to leave the house 0.47 seconds ago. You’re late. That’s it. You’re going to miss your bus, which means you will miss your train that is always overcrowded with about 300 people. Your manager will give you the ‘speech’. Usually online the lines of “I understand you have many children to keep with but this lateness has to got to stop”. Hashtag who cares he/she doesn’t understand anyway.

This is for the mum who is at the end of her tether, and has 101 things to do but does a puzzle with her three-year-old twins instead. There is something about seeing their little faces light up that makes her go all fuzzy inside, and she needs that – NOW. But of course things have gone wrong, I mean in her households why would things go right, right? She is listening to the twins scream at the top of their lungs and they’re throwing the biggest temper tantrum known to man. This major meltdown is caused by the last piece of the puzzle. It’s missing. Last piece of the puzzle where art thou?

This is for the mum who feels like a failure and feels like she is only one who is constantly doing everything wrong. She feels lonely and cries herself to sleep to make the thoughts go away. Hashtag no one understands.

Now ladies, let me tell you this IMPOSIBBLE IS NOTHING.

You got this!


There is nothing worse than giving up, feeling like there is no hope and finally letting that voice that’s in your head take control over your feelings. Who can get out of that state of mind when you’re at such a low point? How long are you to feel empty and who can you turn to without feeling judged or feeling like a bad mum?

He is the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last and believe me when I say he can get you through anything! For the mums at Mum’s Pride, we turn to God when we face adversity and are going through trials and tribulations. Friends and family can also be there to be a shoulder to cry on and offer words of wisdom but there is only so much that man can do.

God looked out across eternity and He saw YOU. He knew your purpose and saw that the world needed that just extra set of traits and abilities that you have and decided YOU were the best. Yes the best, after all, He created you and when he was done God looked at you and said ‘ This is good’.

You can do anything you set your mind to and remember that the way you do things impacts everything you do. Your children and family may not show it, but they appreciate you because you are one of kind and special to them.

We all get times that we feel like we can’t even make it through the day. This is incorrect. If you have made it this far you can make it through anything! Our mind is our biggest obstacle and if you just take things one-step and day at a time with a positive outlook, things will not only change but get better.


Peace and Love
