Mantras for Mamas

I was talking to a friend the other day about a difficult situation with my kiddos and realized I could use some mantras in my life to help me stay calm and centered admits the chaos. Here’s what I came up with (& do you have a mantra???):

“I don’t need to attend to every argument I’m invited to”

“The past does not have power over the present moment”

“I am breathing to take space to collect to this moment”

“I can be okay in discomfort”

“I will define me”

“I am (you are) already whole”

“I am (you are) light”

“I forgive myself (you)”

“I honor the divine in you and I honor the divine in me”

“Both light and shadow are a part of me/you and that’s OK”

“There is a crack in everything and that’s how the light gets in”(leonard cohen)

“The less I seek my source for some definitive the closer I am to fine” (indigo girls)

“I am what I attend to”

“Mature presence”

“My kid is not the problem. The problem is the problem”

“I am my child’s home base despite the chaos”

“I am teaching my child about the way infinite love works in every moment”

“Be gentle to yourself”

“You/I am still learning”

Do you have any parenting mantras that help you get through rough moments?
