The reality of motherhood is not what you expected..
Motherhood is a beautiful gift that I do not take for granted... but it definitely did not come easy for me!
Mother's Day is coming up and I wanted to take a moment to honor all of the moms out there. I also wanted to share my personal experience transitioning to motherhood.
I always dreamed of becoming a mom and I couldn't wait for the day that I could hold a little baby in my arms. I remember holding my son a month after he was born (Mother's Day 2019) and crying my eyes out in misery and frustration.
I learned that motherhood is not the beautiful picture of bliss that I had imagined. I struggled to come to terms with my new reality. I felt like my life had been permanently halted and I worried that I would never feel like myself again.
My son just turned three last week and I look back at those moments in wonder at how much things have changed. Becoming a mother was by far the hardest thing I have ever done, but it has taught me patience and forgiveness in a way that nothing else in this world could have.
No matter what stage of motherhood you are in make sure you take time to rest and recover so that you can feel happy and have more energy.
