How to stay motivated as a single parent?

This can be a big struggle sometimes, motivation that is. There are times when you are taking your change to the coinstar machine just to be able to buy milk, right?

You have to find your motivation not just in your children (although they are absolutely a motivation) but in yourself. The only thing that is going to change about your situation is you. So find the motivation you need by telling yourself where you want to be and what you want to do and then keep that end goal in mind.

    Good advice. I think it's good for all mothers because I know I have times where I struggle with motivation.
