25 positive and encouraging affirmations all mom’s need to hear

Could you use some words of encouragement on your journey as a mom?


Mama’s, you are doing a great job!


Let’s build each other up, not tear each other down!


All mom’s could use some positive affirmations reassuring them they are not alone…





Had a tough day?

Kids not listening to you?

Feeling overwhelmed?

Experienced a mom fail?


Trust me, we have all been there! Don’t come down too hard on yourself, just shake it off and know that tomorrow is a new day! We all have had mishaps, made mistakes and done things as a parent that we may want to do over or take back. It’s okay, you are human and you make mistakes…not a big deal. Don’t dwell on it, just put on your big girl panties and move on like the amazing mom you are! Haha!!!



We’re all in this Mom Squad together

Let’s face it…Mom’s sometimes need to hear that they are doing a great job, along with some positive words of encouragement. We all know how it feels to be unsure, uncertain on if we are doing a good job as a mom. Sometimes we doubt ourselves, and it helps to know that there are others out there who know our struggles.  Other moms who sometimes forget things, don’t always have things all together, and that feel defeated every once in awhile. Just know that “We’re all in this Mom Squad together“…
