Confidence is all about how you feel about yourself. It does not matter what others may think or say but that you feel you are worthy and valuable. It is up to you to do it and make decisions without doubting or questioning your ability.

Today it seems that there are so many outside sources trying to convince us that we are not doing it right, doubting our ability to raise our families to be successful adults. It can be overwhelming and down right exhausting.

A confident mom is practical with realistic expectations and has a set of reality checks in place when she has lost her cool to regroup, refocus, and move ahead without guilt or condemnation toward herself. One of the keys here is realistic expectations. So often we have very unrealistic expectations of who we should be or what we should be doing. By understanding the basic principles behind why you do what you do, you are able to regroup and refocus with a different plan and move forward. If you do not have those principles embedded within, you will struggle with moving forward—and the doubt can be debilitating.

con·fi·dence

1. Full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing: We have every confidence in their ability to succeed.

2. Belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance: His lack of confidence defeated him.

If you do not have the belief in yourself and your ability, who will?

What will it take for you to gain the feeling of confidence in your role in the home?

Trust Your Intuition And Wisdom

You know your kids better than anyone else. Fully trust that you are the expert on your kids, because you are—even over doctors and other professionals. They do not spend every day with your children as you do. You have this unique ability to know just what to say and do at the right moment. Mothers have also been given this key instinct to know when something is wrong. You’ve probably experienced this before, such as knowing that your child’s illness is not just a typical cold and the need to be adamant with the doctor to dig a little deeper to find answers.

Trust in your intuition. Once you do this, you will have much more confidence in your role as their mother. One thing you must realize is that your children notice when you lack in confidence. When you are strong and sure of yourself, they will respect this. You want your children to see you full of confidence. This gives them a great sense of security.

Through your love and understanding, you intuitively know just the right words or actions to help your family grow and flourish. You were given unique gifts as a mother to prune away the negative and add just enough love and nourishment to accentuate the positive. Our hearts are soft and overflowing with tenderness at just the right times. The intuitive wisdom of moms is not an accident. You are gifted with this wonderful healing sense to create and keep the peace. Moms are emotionally and mentally equipped to deal with the stresses and blessings of day-to-day life…and then some. It may not always seem that way, and yes, some days are much harder than others, but know that you have these unique gifting abilities to serve your family.

It helps to surround yourself with people that respect your parenting decisions and support you in your “expert” role as a mom. Welcome people into your life that fill you with confidence and limit your time with those who do not. Choose others who are good mentors as well. All moms need a mentor, someone to look at as an example, someone who has been down the same path. Ideally, older moms make great mentors, as long as they share the same (or better) values as you.

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. —Proverbs 4:6

If you line yourself up with the will of God on a daily basis, then you can trust in your intuition and wisdom, for the Holy Spirit lives within you, and He will direct your path as a mother. He will also sprinkle in the knowing in your intuition, so it makes it that much easier to trust in these feelings.
