What I do know is that even if we are not thanked for the work that we do - there is always a way for us to love and acknowledge ourselves. However, so many mothers I know feel guilty for taking me time or have a difficult time accepting a compliment when it comes their way. Other Moms are recognized for accomplishments but brush them under the table for fear of offending others. I have fallen guilty of this myself. And today I want to declare "Pat Yourself on the Back" Day! How you celebrate is up to you. I am going to simply bask in being named Woman of the Month on "I Complete Me" Then I will take a visit to Maximum Potential and enjoy being bestowed the title "incredible woman." Perhaps next I will mosey on over to the Kellogg's Snackpicks site where I am a featured Mom Blogger. As I sit here at my disorganized desk with my unfolded laundry and my never ending to-do list, I am taking a day to stop stressing and simply enjoy being the beautiful, fabulous me.
I recommend you do the same. If you don't see yourself as the beautiful and fabulous person that you are, no one else will. We all deserve a day to say to ourselves "job well done." Why not make that day today?
