I know you all read the title of this post and thought “I’m so sick of Lizzo.” However, whether you are a Lizzo fan or not, she 100% gets a few things about being a mom and needing a little words of encouragement every now and then. Read below for some affirmations directly from the lyrics of Lizzo.
I know I’m a queen but I don’t need a crown – Soulmate
I love these lyrics and this statement in general because I know you all have had those days where you feel like you have done 1,656,785,234 things in one day. Whenever you do finally sit done for a minute or lay down for the night, you realize all of the running around you have done and think ‘how did I just do all of that?’ Next time just tell yourself that you are a superwoman or a queen because you know what … you are!
Don’t worry ’bout the small things, I know I can do all things – Coconut Oil
This lyric hits home as a first time mother because you do worry about all of the small things – her nose is running (is she sick?), she’s not eating (picky eater or something wrong?), fever (sick or Louisiana weather)? I mean I question it all but I have learned to just go with the flow and if she seems okay then don’t worry about it.
No I’m not a snack at all, baby I’m the whole meal – Juice
Hearing this lyric cracks me up every time but it really is an affirmation to all women and all mothers. We are not just a protein bar snack, we are the appetizer, the main course, and the dessert because we fuel our kids and our families on a daily basis. These lyrics just mean to me that I am worthy and to everyone else it should mean that you are worthy too!
Need to kick off your shoes, time to focus on you – Good As Hell
I used to feel guilty when I first had my baby girl and I basically left the house immediately after my husband walked through the door. I used to think that I should be happy all of the time and should want to spend all of my time with the baby. However, I quickly learned that some away time was good for everyone (husband and baby included). Luckily I have a husband that understood that I had been cooped up in the house with a colicky and cranky, at times, child and I needed some ME time. Whether my ME time was spent walking around Target aimlessly or at the nail salon or just driving, it was time for me to focus on my sanity versus keeping the baby happy.
