“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is…and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” ―Donna Ball
I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a real estate agent. I’m a consultant. I’m a blogger. BLOGGER. What does that mean? What the hell was I really getting myself into when I started this journey? Honestly, some days I feel like this is just a public diary/journal if you will. But I’m still here, telling you what is going on in my life. The only difference is my shit isn’t really sugar-coated. It just is.
With that said, I’m going to be honest here. Lately I’ve been pretty hard on myself. Sure, I’ve lost my baby weight, but it just doesn’t seem like the scale is really moving any more than what I really thought it was going to. *Insert new mom 6 pack by now.* Whatever. we all go through these types of things in our lives I’m sure, and it’s just how we respond to them that makes us develop and become stronger people, right?!
Well, not me. I’ve been hard. I’ve been mean. I’ve been critical on myself, and I wasn’t sure how I was going to shake it. I mean, I go to the gym. I eat right, I don’t smoke, I drink on
occasion or nightly, but still. That’s all my vices. Come on gym Gods, let’s work together here…
HOWEVER, it wasn’t until someone reached out to me on Instagram and asked to use one of my pictures, and comments for world breastfeeding week that I really started thinking about myself, and putting my life in a different perspective. (Read Article HERE )
Here’s the thing. I may not be where I am in weight, height, color, etc etc etc, BUT, I am a mother. I am a breastfeeding mother. I am doing something for my child, that’s taking part of me to help take care of her. Really – it doesn’t even matter. I’m taking care of a life. I’m watching her, feeding her, playing with her, growing and learning with her. My life is devoted to her and my family. When I stop and think about it, and put it out there, it really doesn’t sound so bad, now does it?
So moms. All you mom’s out there. If you are feeling, or have felt the same way as I have at some point in time. DON’T. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Be HAPPY. Be PROUD. Be CONFIDENT in the things that you are doing and have done for your family. You know why? Because you really are a BADASS. And you deserve for someone to tell you that. BELIEVE IT!
THANK YOU. Thank you to all you other women out there. Bloggers, Mothers, Sisters, Wives, and just regular BADASS women out there. We are a tribe, and we need to stick together and keep helping each other up. We are worth it!!
