GIFT OF A HAPPY MOTHER HB
Letting Go of Perfection and Embracing Everyday Joy
Rebecca Eanes

"Would you rather have a perfect mum or a happy one?" This is the question that popular parenting blogger, Rebecca Eanes couldn't get out of her head. So she asked her school-age son, who didn't miss a beat in responding: "A happy one."

Thus began a journey of reflection and repair work, as Rebecca asked herself an even harder question: How can I rediscover everyday joy amid the chaos of schedules, homework and housework - not to mention the guilt, comparisons, loneliness, fear and pressures? In other words, how can I become a happy mum again?

In this accessible guide, Rebecca talks readers through the process of getting back to happy, for your own sake as well as your family's. Going beyond the usual advice about finding balance, embracing gratitude and not sweating the small stuff, her hard-won advice is written by a busy mum in the trenches. Topics include:
· Letting go of perfection (or anything close to it)
· Making peace with the past - including the pain of disappointment, loss
and the roads not taken
· Tuning in to your own wants and needs - and tuning out the
comparisons, "shoulds" and noise of social media
· Finding magic in the mess
· Choosing joy over fear and worry
· Creating healthy boundaries so that everyone in your life can thrive
(including you!)

Filled with fresh insights, simple strategies and aha moments, this is that rare book you'll want to read, lend and return to for a booster shot of confidence, connection and joy. This book gives busy mums permission to care for themselves in addition to their families.
