Introducing... Mantra Monday

Welcome to the first ever, Mantra Monday by Dreaming of Diapers & Dimples! I was working on a post with a master list of my favorite quotes, mirror messages and mantras and it dawned on me that I should make this a weekly thing that way you ladies can focus on one mantra at a time. I mean, that makes the most sense. 

My favorite way  to use mantras is to recite them every morning when I get up. I know it sounds silly but hey, it works for me. My routine is normally get out of bed, brush my teeth, blah blah and after I brush my teeth - I look at myself in the mirror and recite my mirror message a few times until it sounds like I really believe it. Fake it 'till you make it - right? 

The #MantraMonday Mantra for this week is:

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quite voice at the end of the day saying “I will try again tomorrow.” 

- Mary Radmacher

I love this quote so much. On days where I feel like I can't give this trying to conceive thing all of my attention, I always think - I will try again tomorrow. We are only human and sometimes we are tired. Both physically and emotionally, so we put off baby dancing another day and wonder if we are messing up by doing that. Look - all we can do is our best. In order to be a good mother, father, parent in general, we have to take care of ourselves too. Take the day to feel sad, defeated, tired and drink a glass of wine and maybe even pair it will your favorite sushi roll - you are doing the absolute best you can.
