She said,

“for women, shame is do it all, so it perfectly and never let them see you sweat…Shame, for women, is this web of unobtainable, conflicting, competing expectations about who we’re supposed to be. And it’s a straitjacket.” Dr. Brene Brown in her 2012 TedTalk.

Let me tell you, I sweat, but I’m free of my straitjacket. I have no qualms with knowing I’m not a pinterest perfection mom. Ladies, your kids just need to know you love’em, will listen to them, and be there when it all hits the fan- no matter what. Give yourself a pat on the back and go take a walk outside. It will soothe your soul.

You are always enough.
