Today is your day but we celebrate each other every day so today is a bonus day. Almost three years ago, I became a mom to my best friend, my heartbeat, my entire world, my son Aaron. I remember promising myself throughout my pregnancy that I would enjoy every single moment of what was going to be a life-changing journey; motherhood. And I am doing just that and I want you to do the same. I was not going to allow society to control my journey because society’s expectations are mostly unrealistic. Today as you celebrate the superhuman woman that you are, I want to remind you of how incredibly amazing and strong you are.
I know there are days that go by which are overwhelming, stressful, and you feel like you’re not doing enough. You are doing enough. Don’t be hard on yourself, motherhood is an ever-changing and ever learning journey. Some days we will get it right and other days? Completely wrong.
I don’t ever want you to feel lonely because you are not alone because we are on this journey together.
Mama’s, it’s okay to make time for yourself. Me time is definitely needed. Book that spa appointment, treat yourself to your favorite restaurant, have a day out with your girlfriends; YOU MATTER!
As I say all the time, in order for you to care for your child/children, you must care for you first. You must love yourself first. You must feel whole.
Today and every day, remember, YOU GOT THIS!
