10 Moments to Remind Yourself to TRUST

One word that keeps making its way into my life this week is TRUST.

And I’m not 100% sure what I’m supposed to be trusting this week, but I thought it might be a good topic for today’s blog. You might have other words for trust, like faith, hope, intuition or confidence. You might trust in things like the universe, or God, or your partner.

For me, TRUST means putting myself and my feelings out there and letting go of the control that I often feel the need to have.

There are many moments throughout just a single day that I remind myself to TRUST in what is happening and know that I don’t have DO anything to get through that moment. It’s a sense of slowing down and knowing that things are going to work out.

Here are 10 moments that you might find this word helpful.

  1. As the kids are misbehaving, remind yourself to TRUST that they are just kids and sometimes they don’t know the best way to react to situations just yet.

  2. As your anxiety heightens, TRUST your intuition to ride the wave of feelings that come and know that they won’t last forever. Breathe.

  3. When you review your bank account or think about how you’re going to be able to provide for your family, TRUST that things will all work out for the best.

  4. If your little one is sick, TRUST that you know the best way to take care of them and that they will be well soon. If your baby is in the NICU, TRUST that the doctors and nurses know how to care for your little one.

  5. When your little one won’t sleep without being held, TRUST that this season won’t last forever and you’re little one just needs you for now.

  6. When someone gives you poor advice about motherhood, TRUST that you know what is best for you and your family, and that they are simply trying to help because they care for you.

  7. As your depression kicks in, TRUST that you have the tools and support needed to get through this low period.

  8. When your partner doesn’t seem to relate to what you are going through, TRUST that they want what is best for you but just might not know how to show that.

  9. When your family or friends are bombarding your new family, TRUST that you have the strength to set boundaries and do what is best for you.

  10. When you are feeling alone and scared in motherhood, TRUST that there are a million mamas out there who are in the same boat. You are not alone.

It might be hard to repeat this word to yourself without other feelings bubbling up to the surface. You might find it hard to trust in yourself, believe in your ability to be a mother, or know that your decisions are best for you and your family and might be different from your best friend’s.

But, give it a shot. When you are in a tight spot this week, think about this word. Repeat this word in your head. Take a deep breath and trust that things will be okay.

Believe in yourself, mama. You are strong and supported.
