Day 5 of 31 Days of Life in the StepMom Trenches (Vlogtober)
Today is Friday and I want you to take a moment to celebrate YOU! We can often become focused on what we are not or what our family is lacking that we completely overlook the amazing things we DO bring to our stepfamily.
Today, I share a few things I bring into my stepdaughter’s lives and things that my kids benefit from in regards to their dad’s home.
The mom, stepmom relationship is not a competition. We can compliment one another when both are committed to working together for the sake of the children. When a mom values what a stepmom brings to her childrens’ lives, it allows the stepchild to embrace the new world the stepmom brings.
A mom should not feel threatened if her child’s stepmom has a talent or passion for something that she doesn’t have. That talent or passion is something that the child would never have been exposed to if it weren’t for their stepmom. Whether you are or are not embraced by your stepchildren’s mom, YOU ARE blessing your family with your love, commitment, time, talent and passions. Celebrate those things today!
Hope you’ll watch the video below and take time to celebrate the amazing things you bring to your family.
Takeaway: Get out that piece of paper I mentioned in the vlog and jot down five things you bring to your family. Celebrate those items. When you are feeling down, take those items out and look at them. Then add five more. Before you know it you will have a long list of wonderful blessings you bring to your stepkids and to your family.
Bravo StepMom! You are doing an Amazing job!
