It’s hard to find the exact words to express what this journey has been like for me. As my baby girl approaches her first year of being in this world, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment. The more she grows and learns, the more whole I feel. She has brought a concrete purpose to my life, but it hasn’t been all sunshine and butterflies!
There is a part of motherhood that can be scary, exhausting, and confining at times. The best advice I can give to all mommies is to live each day as it comes. Enjoy the highs, ride the lows, and most importantly find balance!
Each day integrate a little bit of what you love to do. For me, it’s getting to practice yoga or maybe taking a nice long shower. For you, it could be going for a walk, painting, shopping, or riding a bike. No matter what it is, take five, ten, fifteen minutes or more to come back to YOU.
I wouldn’t change one thing about my journey as a mother. It brightens my days, fills my heart and makes me a better human being. I look forward to many more mommy adventures to come.
