"I've finally started to learn that it's ok to go through all the emotions. But I've also learned that it's not okay to be dwelling on them. At some point you have to pull yourself up and be like, 'Alright, I'm just going to do everything I can today and I can just let that be enough.'
Allowing yourself to just be enough is probably the best thing you can do. The best thing you can encourage your kids to do is to be their best selves and not try to push them to be something that they're not. Love them for who they are and love yourself for who you are." - - Lani Wilkinson
