Feeling Inadequate

We all go thru times when we just don't feel good enough. I am stuck in one of those ruts. I feel like I can't get anything right. There are days I don't feel like a good mother, wife, housekeeper- everything. Do I even have talent? Maybe it's just the weather, maybe I need a really great vacation. Whatever the reason, I am blue. Please leave me some words of encouragement!

so normal megan! i feel inadequate all the time. we have so much responsibility as moms. the thing about our job is you don't really get recognition for it. i know your cute baby boy would say your doing just fine :) and i might add..your dang good at making movies!!

I know exactly how you feel and I'm sorry! Those feelings come daily for me and sometimes no matter what others say it's hard to believe them, but I am being completely sincere when I say I think you are wonderful! Let's play soon and get us both out of this blah!

I tell ya Meg, there is not a night that goes by that I don't pray for another day so I can try harder to be a better person, especially mother. And wife. And friend. And I think it is great you put it out there for everyone to cheer you on. So many women don't! And I'm just saying, take me up on a park invite one of these days we always have a good time!

Well it's comforting to know that I'm not the only person who feels this way. A friend told me once that when thoughts like that come... "I'm not a good enough wife, mother, friend, daughter, etc."... those thoughts are coming from Satan. He doesn't want us to be happy. I've found for myself, that when I'm stuck inside all day, that's when I feel the worst. Hopefully the weather is getting nicer which means a lot more time outside. Lets get together sometime soon with Em and her kids. Maybe the next warm day we have, we could have a picnic at the park and the kids can run off their energy and us girls can talk. You're doing great!

Isn't that funny how twisted our brains are. The other night when I was with you, I couldn't believe just how amazing you were doing with all your wife and motherhood duties. Dinner.made. Love.given. Your house was truly a home Meg. I am so wanting to be like you when its my turn to experience all that. Not sure that you know this, but I learn so much from you about how to become a wife/mother, just by watching you. You have such patience with everything. Not sure i could do it! So there ya go...words from my heart. Love you!

Meg, I havent checked blogs in forever and a half, but it was fun looking through yours. I cant believe how life just keeps going and going. with good days and bad. Heres my advice. . .go on a cruise!! Okay not necessarily a practical solution but sometimes we all need to "get away". On another note, I'm coming to Utah this summer, sometime early Julyish. Lets get together. I would love to see you!! cheers, my friend!

Wow... I love these humbling moments! I think so often we look at people and think that some things just come naturally to them and we are the only ones that have to work for it. I have a gal in my ward that is the SUPER SkINNIEST woman EVER. She's so cute and thin and everyone just adores her and her little figure. I was thinking how lucky she was that she was given that gift... then a couple of weeks ago I was chatting with her and found out... She WORKS for it! She never eats a french fry.. she runs everyday. WHAT?!?!
This week.. this super amazing gal I know that in my eyes has everything together, super talented and crafty, great mommy and wife, house lovely every time I've been there... has a blue day. You may know her.. her name is Megan! :) ;) Don't try to compare yourself with anyone! You're amazing and be thankful for those wonderful gifts you have!

I appreciate this post because it helps me realize that I am not alone! Today it is snowing and I just want to lay in bed all day! Being a mom is so trying and hard and some days it's just difficult to find a reason why it's worth it. Then your little one crawls in your lap and snuggles close and gives you a hug. You are such an amazing person and friend. I was looking at your Blum blog the other day thinking how talented and creative you are. I feel so lucky to have a friend like you.

Let's just start with the obvious: you're gorgeous, faithful, loving, smart, interesting, and I love you. I couldn't have asked for a better sister-in-law to run around with. You remember movie quotes as well as the Rogers boys, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. I also know that if I ever wanted to fight someone, you'd have my back and we'd totally kick her trash. I always defer any gardening questions to you because your knowledge way surpasses mine. And let's not forget how you looked like a princess ballerina dunking the ball. Booyah!

I just love you to peices. :)

Love ya!

Hey, I just read this post today, so sorry my comments are late. But YES, I think you have a lot of talent!! You are always doing cute projects to improve the look of your house... and frankly, I'm jealous. :) I wish I could come up with some way of doing that! :) Plus, you have an adorable little family/dog! So, in my book, you are alright! ;)
