It's okay to make mistakes. We all make mistakes. (Even the sanctimommies.)
In life (and ESPECIALLY in parenting), it's easy to be hard on ourselves for mistakes... to obsess over them. After all, those little people that we are responsible for? Our mistakes affect them. Our mistakes can hurt them.
But don't forget that you are human too.
You are ever learning and ever growing.
The human heart is resilient
The next time you make a mistake, don't dwell on it.
Remember, you are not alone
Look for an accountability partner: a spouse, an mom friend on the internet, a sibling or other relative. Sometimes just talking about mistakes and shortcomings helps make overcoming them easier.
What do you do when you make a mistake? How do you keep your mistakes from dampening the joy in your life?
