@Tulip, the mantra I posted before is one of my favorites:
"When life is tough, I will remain soft."
I completely agree with you and being vulnerable, loving, caring and empathetic are all beautiful qualities!
We can be strong, and still all of those things
I love those mantras you posted as well.
"I am enough" is very powerful.

Slightly off topic but to enlighten you! I live in the U.K. And my youngest child I adopted when he was 18 months old. We have had many ups and downs he is aged 6 .... when you think "I've got this", "I can make a difference"....... there is always another perspective, parenting is a huge learning curve!!!
We have discovered that his unsettledness in school etc is down to not forming neurological brain connections from the last trimester of pregnancy to 0-6 months... his treatment plan for this "being" stage is to wrap language around situations and emotions... it's called the thrive approach!!!!
So as I'm saying to him :-
you are super at peeling veg, you'll make a good chef
i bet your feeling very proud for drawing a beautiful picture
poditive affirmations are SO powerful! As I'm making an effort to use these on my youngest boy, I'm applying it to the 3 others too! Especially the stroppy teenager!! Then I tell myself:-
"you can't always get it right! Your on a learning curve girl! But by god your doing the best you can and feel proud of yourself!"
