Life is all about choices. Good ones and bad ones. I often think about the choices I’ve made in the past, but most importantly I think about how I can make better choices in the future.
As a mom, it’s difficult to know when you are making the best choices for your kids. It’s like a constant weight on my shoulders, trying to figure out what’s going to be best for them.
What should their routine look like? What schools should they go to? What activities should they be signed up for? There are so many choices that have to be made that could affect who they grow up to be. I just want to be able to make the best choices for them and give them the best lives that I can.
The hardest part for me is knowing if I'm making the right choices. As a single mom, every choice you make from day 1 of the child's life is on you. There's no shared responsibility. Now at 34 weeks, there's so many choices to be made and it's honestly stressful making them by myself. All of the choices that I make for him now, could affect him for the rest of his life. There's no one to help me make these decisions.
When making decisions for your kids, it's important to be practical, not emotional. Make choices for them that could only lead to good outcomes. Weigh your options and make the choices that seems the most beneficial for them. It's hard sometimes. But seeing the positive outcomes, makes everything worthwhile.
