I am surprised and a little disappointed it has been so difficult for me to write this post. Taking the Mom Pledge means a lot to me. I just couldn’t understand why I struggled to write about it. Then it clicked.
The Pledge means I commit to be supportive, fair, and understanding. I won’t cut others down, I will contribute from a place of respect and with kindness. My difficulty writing this has been the niggling feeling I am not making an entirely true statement. I struggle on a daily basis to apply these tenets when I think about myself. However, as I like to say – Onwards.
I gladly join the ranks of bloggers wanting to make the world a better place, and publicly declare I believe every little bit does count. I thank Elizabeth Flora Ross for the concept, and for creating good in the blogsphere. And I commit to apply the Pledge in what I do, and to myself. All that can happen is I come out a healthier, more positive person and better equipped to be a good mom. That’s a pledge worth taking.
