MOTHERHOOD BECOMES HER…
Becoming a mom was one of the hardest roles for me to step into. Yeah some make it look easy, but what really goes on behind closed doors? No one shares the tears, feeling of self loss, anxiety and the battle to be perfect.
Naturally we are our worst critics and as much as I like to think I am a quick learner, easy to adapt. This role took a bit longer and I am STILL learning everyday. Motherhood is just one of those things no one can teach you.
In order to be the mom that I MYSELF wanted to be for my son, I had to let go of a lot of things I once enjoyed. Doing so caused me to barely be able to recognize me. With time, patience, prayer, self care and support from my husband I truly feel that instead of “becoming a mom”, “motherhood has BECOME ME”.
I am proud of the self confidence and commitment I’ve gained in the long process. I often doubted myself and my motherly instincts, listening to everyone besides my own voice and my son’s…
Motherhood has taught me so much and I am loving it every day. Many people think having a baby will ruin your life or stunt your growth. For me it was the opposite.
I’m in love with the person I’ve grown to be and after months of trying to find the old me, that I was before my son, I finally accepted that it’s okay, not to to be the same person I used to be. Once I accepted that, I was able to truly and fully love the person I’ve become.
Motherhood and my son has made me BETTER.
I cherish and respect who I am and I am grateful for the patience and unconditional love my husband continues to show me throughout this journey. More so, I thank God for FIRST showing me how true love feels.
