NaBloPoMo Blog Prompt 7 If you could permanently get rid of one worry, what would it be?
OH WOW! Just one worry? Obviously, whoever picked this prompt doesn’t know I’m a bucket of worries, I’m really working on that, and I’m MUCH better, now. In the past I’ve written about how my worry/concern can take me down a never ending rabbit hole, it’s true. There was this post where I talk about how motherhood has shaped my worry. Most recently, I wrote about this worry, I think many of us share that worry.
However, I was asked to choose just ONE, I’m searching real hard. I don’t want to say I want to lose all worry for my children, because they’re my babies, and worry is also somewhat instinctual, right? That mama bear instinct kicks in, because there is a spot of worry inside, no?
I guess, I could stop worrying about what I think they are thinking, or not thinking. You know mama guilt… it’s a form of worry. I question if I’m doing enough, if I’m doing too much, if I’m doing it right, if I’m giving enough of me.
Mama guilt and I have been battling it out since 2002, and I’m not sure if I will ever win. However, I do know this, I’m a damn good mama, I love my babies, insanely. They’re doing alright, and I know I need to remind myself of this more.
