The past 4 months have been a whirlwind. To be honest it has not been easy. Since having martin & Leia I have had to learn who I am again. The past three years i have been pregnant twice, had 2 c-sections and have nursed both my babies (im currently only nursing leia). So now that im almost 5 months postpartum, and done having babies, i literally have to reset my mind and body. Now that i have a new purpose, I have come to terms with understanding that im not the same person I was before having kids. I have evolved, I have changed, i have become better. My thoughts are different, my responsibilities are different and my life has a whole new meaning. i know that everything i do now will impact who my children become. am i setting a good example? am i being a good teacher? am i being the best version of myself for them?
the crazy thing is life moves so fast and we try to catch up not realizing that if we slow down and take in everything one step at a time we will see more of who we are and only than can we change things and become better. Because I want to be the best version of myself for my kids and my husband, I must take the time to love myself, know who i am and take care of myself. Making the effort to take the time to do these things can seem hard and overwhelming but i know that I am strong and determined.
Everything we do in life is a journey we just have to accept it and keep going. The beauty of a journey is that even though there are bumps along the way and you cant see the road ahead, there is always a refuge, and a strength that only God can give. God has definitely been my help in the time of trouble. When i feel like i cant, God tells me that i can, when i feel alone, God lets me know that he is right there and that he see’s me. God has given me the confidence in accepting who i am and accepting the path he has placed in front me. Im excited to be moving forward and seeing amazing things ahead.
whether your a mom or just on a life journey, i would love to know your experience! Everyone’s journey is not the same… thats the beauty.
