Another Year Of Motherhood…
I often do my thinking in the shower. It’s when things just come to me sometimes like a bolt of lightening and sometimes like a soft whispering voice. It’s when I come to understand and step out of the shower with a new outlook on life (yes, my showers are very productive)… Showers are the best part of the day, and today, I’ve realized that I’m a better person after those showers.
Becoming a mother has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Being a mother is by far the most challenging but most rewarding job I’ve ever had.
I am more patient, more forgiving, more prayerful, more compassionate, more mindful and way more appreciative.
With 2018 just a few days away I’ve been reflecting on 2017 and realized that it’s another year of motherhood and parenting behind me. I was trying to think of how I’ve changed since becoming a mother and the truth is my life may look the same and at times feels the same but my soul is different.
I won’t tell you that motherhood changes you because I have friends who say it hasn’t changed them but for me, I realize that I think in a completely different way. For example I’m much more compassionate. My mind often wonders to how other children’s lives are and how we’re shaping our children to interact with them when they meet.
And so I decided to make a new set of resolutions this year.. My regular personal goals but also, my goals as a mother, I won’t be posting that list but I thought it would be a great idea for moms and moms to be to separate their own personal goals from their motherhood/parenting goals.
