    Check out 47 of the Best Motherhood Quotes below.

    Being a new mom means you’ll have lots of questions…which is a good thing! Just remember that while advice is important, you must also take some quiet time to discern your own mothering instincts.

    The most important take away is “Never give up”!  Mothering is hard, there is no way around that fact. But you are an awesome mother, even if that just means getting up and being present for your baby!

    This one is similar to the popular “you are what you eat”, but it hits closer to the heart.  We are humans and therefore, not perfect. Just remember to keep striving for what you want, don’t give up!

    For the Type A personalities out there, this one might be a little harder, but it’s so true!  Life happens and many times we need to be flexible and adjust our plans. Just remember that if it doesn’t go according to plan A it does not mean you failed!  

    We are all given challenging and hard experiences in life. These are not meant to knock us down, but rather to build us up. You will always be victorious when you walk out with more courage and strength!

    As soon as we start to lower our standards (often because we are in a vulnerable and emotional state) we lose control over where to draw the line. Don’t do this to yourself! If you start to lower your standards, take a step back, and reflect on what you deserve.

    This quote perfectly combines the dreamers and the realists of the world. Always dream big, but don’t be afraid to take the baby steps in order to achieve your goals!

    Comparison is a dangerous past time for any person…especially for a new mom. Focus on you, mama! Be honest about your failures and your accomplishments, and then strive to be better!

    Congrats, you’ve reached your goal! This is amazing and you should reward yourself. Now… I challenge you to pick a new goal. Don’t stop, keep challenging yourself to become the best you possible!

    Take time each day to reflect on what was good, you should always find at least one thing. Be thankful for this joy in your life, no matter how small.



    Raising a dependent, small, human being is not easy. In fact, it is most likely one of the hardest things you will ever do. This is not to discourage you, but rather to encourage you. So take a deep breath, it will be worth it!

    Let’s just let this one sink in. We all have hopes and dreams…so take a little courage and try something new to reach your goals. Failure is only when you give up!

    The only way to improve is to try, try again until we succeed! Whatever your struggle is at this moment in life, acknowledge it and then remind it that you are stronger and will keep fighting.

    As mammas, sometimes we put so much effort into making sure our children are happy that we put ourselves on the back burner.

    Ultimately, this will hurt our children because we will run out of energy to care for them. Be sure you take time for yourself to recharge, refocus, and make yourself happy.

    Life is a journey with an ever-changing road. There are hills and valleys, flat deserts, and snowy mountain tops. The point is, there is always something to enjoy no matter what season you are in. Enjoy the music or the lyrics, just let it lift you up and inspire you. 

    Make a list of your priorities. Now take that list and write down the time you spend on each priority. Refocus your energy on those special people in your life that mean the world to you and be thankful.

    Say out loud a goal you’ve had that has been shoved to the back of the closet. Now think of a tangible way to take the first step towards reaching that goal. Set aside time to do this for yourself today.

    As mammas, our first priorities are often our children. Just remember that you are your own individual unique person with qualities that only you can share with this world to make it a better place. 

    How many times do we struggle with this mindset? How freeing it would be to let go of fear! Often the minor possibilities of what could go wrong are the construction cones on an open highway of what could go right.

    Take a deep breath and let other’s hurtful comments flow out of you. Focus on what you think of you. Be honest with yourself, we all have room to improve, but focus on the good and more good will come.


    Think of how far you’ve come to get to where you are now! All the blood, sweat, tears, hours of study, long days (or nights) at work. What was your “why”? No matter what it was or is now, focus on the “why” and take one small step outside your comfort zone today to reach your dreams.

    When the baby is crying at 4AM and you know you’re done sleeping for the night. When the toddler finds the crayons and decorates your wall. When the teenager argues even though they have no facts to back up their opinion.

    When your adult children move out and your whole world feels like it is turned upside just as when you brought your first baby home. These are the times it takes courage to reflect on all the goodness and beauty you have brought into this world!

    Every mistake is an opportunity to learn. Don’t throw these experiences away because they are “bad”. Turn them into something positive…the world needs more positivity!

    The world is full of crazy ideas, sometimes it’s best to just not listen. What and who is beautiful to you? Use your uniqueness to enjoy those things and people in a way no one else can.

    Accepting doesn’t mean giving up. And letting go doesn’t mean forgetting. It just means acknowledging the truth and handling it in the best way possible.

    For all the Type A’s out there, this is for you 🙂 Plans are good, but sometimes the spontaneity and unknown will bring out a side of your personality that you don’t want to miss!

    Sometimes we have to stop passively sitting on the bench watching and get on the road and run! Remember to have confidence in yourself. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are needed.

    How blessed we are to be mothers! We have these tiny human beings that are totally reliant upon us! Sometimes we can get bogged down by our to-do list and crying children. Take a moment to be thankful for the gift of motherhood.  

    Even the toughest days are not all bad! We are developing patience, courage, fortitude, and love to make us better women and mothers.

    A mother’s love is so unique and only you can gift your child with this. Your babies are blessed to have you as their mamma. Take a breath and know that you are doing an amazing job!


    Choose to be joyful! Happiness is not dependent on anyone or anything besides the resolve you make to choose it. Happiness doesn’t result from money, power, clothes, vacations. These things can bring you joy, but they are not “happiness” itself. 

    We are each gifted with our own unique personality, thoughts, and feelings. Don’t let other people change you…because you have gifts to offer this world that no one else can. However, don’t be afraid to learn from others and improve yourself.

    Give this life your all! Fight with all your might, but be a lady about it…be a bad a$ lady! 

    Sometimes when things don’t go our way we try to blame someone or something else. Don’t be afraid to admit to mistakes, we are all human. Take responsibility and then grow from that mistake to get you to your ultimate destination.

    As women, we tend to be hard on ourselves. “I should have been better at this”. “I didn’t I do that”. “Why am I not pretty, creative, outgoing, fun, or productive enough?” Don’t fall into this trap of being our own worst critique. List 3 positive attributes about yourself and say them out loud.

    Once you’re holding that tiny baby in your arms, you realize this. Looking at their chubby cheeks and small fingers you realize you would do anything for this little person. 

    Remember to be thankful for all the gifts you have received in this life. Gratitude is the best fertilizer for happiness. 

    Drive yourself towards the things and people that make you happy. It is a journey and there will be times of sorrow and hardship, but just remember that those times will pass. Prepare your heart to accept the joy you will receive.


    Did you watch the Ford vs Ferrari movie? Talk about motivation! If you believe in yourself, you are already halfway to success. 

    Don’t allow yourself to “talk the talk” and not “walk the walk”. If you truly believe in something, you will do everything in your power to follow it. 

    Nope, the best things are the people we love! Sometimes it’s easy to lose ourselves in the business of life. Remember to hug your blessings every day and express how much they mean to you.

    Wow! This hits home for me. There are so many times I am exhausted and just want to sleep a little longer. Obviously, sleep is necessary and you should strive to get the recommended amount. But, instead of hitting snooze an extra 3 times, get out of bed and chase those dreams!

    Who says kids’ movies are just for kids? Don’t get stuck on the “what if’s” in life. There are too many, and just as Edna says, they are too distracting. Focusing on the past will only make you miss out on the present.

    There is a reason the title “mama bear” came into existence. And it’s not only because moms can be protective of their little ones. Bears are so strong. They can endure the elements while still providing for their cubs. You are that mama bear!

    Mindset can make such a difference in any situation. Choose to react with positivity, passion, love, courage, forgiveness, hope, integrity, and faith.
