The next time I start comparing myself to the mom with a pinterest worthy playroom or the mom with a career and a six-figure salary, I will remind myself that motherhood is not a competition.

There is no trophy for cleanest house and no blue ribbon for “craftiest mom.” There isn’t even a reward for the mom with the biggest bank account.

Instead of comparing and competing, I’ll try encouraging them and celebrating their accomplishments. It’s highly likely that the very moms I compare myself to need more encouragement than I think. We all do.

Motherhood is not a competition
