Powerful Encouragement for Stressed Moms


You’ve got this!

Wake up every morning and tell yourself “I’ve got this!” When you start the day off thinking, it will help you feel like you can conquer the day…and you will.


“No influence is so powerful as that of the mother.” – Sarah Josepha Hale, American author

As a mom, you are very important. Men, women, and children are all influenced by their moms. You are the shaper of our futures. You are the designer of the world. And you are the best mom of all. Keep this in mind when the going gets tough. When the kids are screaming and the sink is leaking and you are teetering on the edge, remember this quote.


“If you have discipline, drive, and determination…nothing is impossible.” – Dana Linn Bailey, inspirational athlete

Use this quote as encouragement. With drive and determination paired with discipline, anything can be achieved. Your goals are within reach, if only you persist. You will achieve them, no matter what anyone says to discourage you.


Behind every great child is a mom, who is pretty sure she’s screwing it all up.

You’re not alone and if you’re worried about this, you’re probably not one of the moms who is really screwing it up. We do the best we can, and we teach our children everything we’re able to. You’re doing a great job, no matter how it feels in the moment.


You can be a mess and a good mom, at the same time.

You’re allowed to be both. No matter what the mess is, it does not make you a bad mom. We all have finances, relationships, housekeeping, and the rest of a long list of challenges. Issues teach us where our strengths and weaknesses are. But problems can be overcome. It just takes time. You’re a great mom and you’re working on yourself, as well as raising children. Give yourself the credit that you deserve.


Your children don’t want a perfect mom.

They want a happy mom. Being happy and joyful is what your children will remember about their childhood. The happier you are, the happier your children are likely to be. Try this out for a day or two and you’ll see a difference. Smile and show your children that you are happy. You’ll see their eyes light up.


“To a child’s ear ‘mother’ is magic in any language.” – Arlene Benedict, author

Mom is one of the sweetest words, and to your children – mother, mom, mama is magic. The magic that fixes everything. The magic that makes the boogeyman go away. The magic that makes it all better. The magic of a mother’s love is heard in her name.


Something special awaits you.

Something special awaits you each day. All you need is to do is recognize it and make the most of your day. Have a positive attitude and say, “Today is going to be the best day of my life.”


“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” – Henry Ford

You’ve always been able to do so much. You can’t and won’t ever let anything slow you down. At this moment, it may not feel like everything is going your way, but don’t give up.


“What does not kill me makes me stronger.” – Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher

Struggles make you a better person and give you experience for the next time that life gets difficult. But most importantly…your children will love YOU forever. No matter what happens today or tomorrow, they’ll never forget how wonderful their mom was.


Today, I will be the type of person I would like my children to become.

Each day, we have little ones looking up to us. As a mom, you’re a role model for your children. They don’t always listen and do what we tell them. But they are masters at copying the things we do. Today, strive to be the person you want them to become.


I accept my children as they are.

Sometimes our children try our patience. When this happens, say to yourself “I accept you as you are and for who you are. You’re an amazing human being and I love you.” These words have helped me so many times and I’m sure they will help you, too.

As moms, we are often hard on ourselves. When things get tough, it’s easy to feel like giving up. It can be challenging to find time for yourself and still take care of the needs of your children. One day at a time, just keep doing what you’re doing. You’ve got this!
