    Great post. It is so hard to be content. I have been struggling with this a lot lately. Thanks for sharing.

    • Courtney K. says:

      You’re welcome, Sarah! I struggle with contentment, too. I think it’s a constant battle. But it’s one I’m trying to get a grip on.

  2. Frelle says:

    a wonderful post to link up to just be enough with. i had/have those same fears with regard to my kids, giving them my insecurities and worrying about their need for therapy later. i can relate. but am working to put of the mommy guilt. some of that is to be real with other moms who are real with me.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I agree. Being “real” in a society where everything seems so fake is TOUGH. But I vowed a long time ago to be open and honest with my son, and to my friends. Life is too short to be anything else.

  3. Mrs. Jen B says:

    You raise such a good point here – there’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve, but we all need to come to a point of accepting where we are right now at this very minute, too. There’s just no room in life for insecurity (and yet we all want to MAKE room for it don’t we?).

    • Courtney K. says:

      I agree! I think that there is a fine line between contentment in where we are right now, and wanting to constantly improve. I try to balance it out.

  4. Courtney says:

    Awesome. Good for you, girl! It’s amazing to see the changes that we’ve made be reflected back to us in our kids. Keegan now asks me if something is good for him before he eats it. And to watch him stroll in his kindergarten class with confidence & totally independent…. I’m so proud. Very happy for you and the changes you are making!

    • Courtney K. says:

      I can’t imagine how exciting that must have been to see him so confident and sure of himself. I’m so happy that he takes after his mommy, and has such a wonderful set of role models to look up to! 🙂

  5. Jackie says:

    This is a great post. I, too, have a son, and I am trying my best to teach him not to be afraid of failing and going after what he wants. I’m very insecure and hesitate doing things because I don’t want to fail, but I realize he’s learning from me so I’m working hard at changing that.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I’m right there with you, Jackie. I’ve struggled with believing that I CAN for a long time. And I don’t want that to rub off on my son. I never want him to believe that he CAN’T do something because of the persona that I give off.

  6. Insecurity is so deeply rooted, it can be very hard to change. I think it takes a great deal of conscious intention and thought-stopping to get past all the self-doubt and self-blame to a place where you can just. be. enough. But you’re so right about the goal.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I agree, Heidi! I think insecurity is one of those things that takes root really early, if we let it, and just won’t let go. But, I’m trying! 🙂

  7. Ashley Sisk says:

    I love the line about constantly evolving…I completely agree. I hope that I am a better person than I was a year ago, 2 years ago…and that I keep getting better. I’m sure the same is true for you.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Absolutely! I think that the only way we move forward in life is by allowing ourselves to change. I know I’m a better person than I was this time last year, and I hope that continues to be my trend. 🙂

  8. Elena says:

    You are so right about there always being room for improvement—and yet still accepting ourselves! Thanks so much for participating!

  9. Cat @ Minoaka Bebe says:

    A great post, I know I struggle with a few insecurities myself. Sometimes when my son is crying and upset I get insecure and not sure what I’m doing or what I need to do. But then I have to remember that every first parent was in my position at one point. It can be scary!

    • Courtney K. says:

      I think we’ve all felt that way when our kids are struggling. You are most definitely not alone! But, I’m sure that you are an absolutely amazing parent!
