Appreciate where you are in your journey.

Whether I was having pregnancy cravings or returning to work after maternity leave, every step of the way there were mothers doing the most with unsolicited advice. While I’m sure it was all given with good intentions, often times it ended up not applying to my situation or just gave me anxiety about what to expect and placed so much pressure on me to get everything right. Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate everyone’s journey without comparison.  No one want to be reminded they’re a “newbie” or a “step mom” or feel like they are any less entitled to be revered than anyone else.
