Even the best moms can have bad mommy days. A day that instead of waking up to the sounds of birds chirping, you’re awakened by the sounds of a screaming child. A day where you run errands and see everyone you know in town, then see a mirror and realize you haven’t done your hair or makeup. A day where you feel fat even in your favorite yoga pants. A day where you feel like if you have to change one more stinky diaper, your head is going to explode. Those are the typical symptoms of my bad days.
No mom wants to have a bad day, but they do happen. One way I fight back against negative forces trying to take over my universe is to read motivational quotes.
Motivational quotes give me the encouragement and energy I need to get through a challenging day. My days are so much better when I choose to have a positive outlook – and other people’s words can inspire me. When I find a favorite quote that I don’t want to forget, I add it to my collection.
A few easy ways I like to collect quotes and keep them handy for when I need extra motivation to get through the day are to:
- Write the quotes on notecards and hang them on the bathroom mirror or refrigerator.
- Pin them on a Pinterest board (I even have a special board just for Mom Quotes)
- Add them to my journal
Positive mental energy is important to keep me going throughout the day. And physical energy is just as important. Eating a sensible diet helps me feel better about myself.
Quaker sent me samples of Real Medleys bars made with real fruit, real nuts and multigrains. I like to keep easy prepackaged snacks like these on hand for those times when I feel my energy levels start to go down. The taste of fruit and nut flavors really comes through in Real Medleys Bars.
