My mission with Letters to my Daughter is to empower mums to be confident, capable, kind and resilient women, setting a positive example for our daughters.

Mums are amazing. You are amazing.

Raising little people to become confident, capable, kind and resilient adults is no mean feet, but mums accept the challenge everyday, and we never give up.

Even the best of us have the odd wobble though, and that’s perfectly ok. I’ve read some fantastic blog posts that empower mums and have shared them below in case you’re in need of a quick boost to get you back on track.

Mummy me time – is it selfish?

– from Naptime Natter

We all love our children dearly, but sometimes a mum just wants to be alone. Wendy talks about what mummy me time means to her and why it’s so important.

I Won’t Be Your Mama Forever, Little One

– from Lucy at Home

This post speaks about the changing roles of a mother as their little people grow, and what mums need to do to ensure they don’t lose themselves in the process of mothering.

We Are Not Rivals

– from Life, Love and Dirty Dishes

A fab post about how we’re all parenting our own way, and that it’s ok if that’s different to other mums. There are reasons for everything and we’re all doing our best.

Being a Mum Made Me

– from Back with a Bump

Fran talks about how being a mum gave her confidence which had been lacking before, and how we all have it within us to speak up for ourselves and our families.

Today I will be mostly… giving myself a break!

– from Pass the Wine Please



This post made me laugh out loud, and I’m sure many mums can relate! We might not be the mum we thought we’d be, but we’ve still got this.


I don’t need a break from my kids!

– from Tantrums to Smiles


So I’ve included a couple of posts about taking some mummy me-time, but this post importantly points out that not all mums want that, and that’s ok too!

Why stay at home mums can still be feminists

– from Mighty Mama Bear

One for the mighty stay at home mums who are rocking their own lives just they way they want to.

Before you were mine

– from Someone’s Mum

A truly beautiful post about how we change when we become mothers, but it’s all worth it… honestly it will give you the warm and fuzzies!

Things I love about other mums…

– from Nomipalony

Last but certainly not least – here’s a wonderful post from Nyomi with a whole list about why mums are just simply brilliant.

…So that’s it for this round-up, and I think you’ll agree there are some great posts here.

Whatever your situation – mama, you’ve got this, even if it doesn’t feel like it all the time. And if you’re having a wobble, I’m always here to lend an ear.

Do any of these posts resonate with you?
Or have you read any other empowering posts lately that have left you thinking ‘woo, yeah!’ or given you a boost when you needed it? I’d love you to share them in the comments.
