Social media allows for new standards of performance in just about every job. Our ability to quickly and effortlessly share achievements makes for an easily accessed stage of self promotion. There are an excess of people publicly patting themselves on the back for doing life-things extra well. This makes it easy to compare yourself to others and often spurs feelings of insignificance, envy and general discontent. “We get it, you are good things.” is often the response I would like to give, of course while conveniently communicating behind the wall of protection and confidence inducing shield we call the internet. We’ve all been affected by a certain level of Instagram envy or the LinkedIn promotion announcement eye roll.  Perhaps the most directly effected group of individuals on the self-promotion front are stay at home moms. The mommy world is full of very opinionated, gloating overachievers. Really, its admirable, the desire and ability to provide the best possible care for your family. It is comforting to know that there are still moms out there who really truly care about the health and well-being of the generation they are raising. But the stage that is the internet allows people to showcase and celebrate their wins in a very controlled way. It’s easy for a mom to post a photo of her kids prepared-ahead healthy and balanced meal for lunch the next day- complete with a handwritten note and an environmentally friendly water bottle in promotion of sustainability. It’s easy for moms to control what the world sees online. And in turn, it is easy for moms to then compare themselves to unrealistic standards of achievement set by one another. There are two moms who took the time to showcase exactly what runs through the minds of well-intentioned moms and the overwhelming feeling of needing to be the best of the best. Check these moms out in their candid conversation about all things they need to achieve as moms. It’s relatable and all-together hilarious! Enjoy!
