Self-Care While Pregnant with Second Child

Self-Care While Pregnant with Second Child

Attention

I’ve decided to start writing my blog posts a little bit differently. I’ve been so focused on what the experts in the blogging world have told me that I don’t often write from my truest voice. As much as I work on myself, I still find that I have these moments where I let the outside world dictate my actions. There are experts out there with amazing advice but it doesn’t mean I have to follow it all. For the most part, I read and study and then create a working style that best matches my personality. With blogging, I’ve been always been a bit insecure because as much as I love to read and write I doubt that I am a good enough writer. But guess what? Who cares!

3 Mindsets Moms Need to Break Free from Fear

Break Free From Fear - Learn from you Children

You are sitting there looking at your child(ren), thinking about how amazing they are. Even when they are clingy, whining, and just super needy, you appreciate your children for their presence, and love. One of the aspects of my children’s personality that I admire the most is their fearless approach to life. They take on monumental tasks on a daily basis and they don’t fear any repercussions or the possibility of failure. They instinctively know that failure is a part of the growth process and the take the world head on anyway.

As we grow older, life beats the fear into us.

  • We fail on a test and there are repercussions.

  • We forget to pay a bill and bam a late fee is attached.

  • You attempt something out of your comfort zone and it doesn’t turn out as planned.

The list can go on and on. My point being that we are born fearless. We only internalize fear from the experiences we have in life. It really is our choice to decide whether we choose to be fearful or fearless.

One Important Revelation About Mother’s Day and Managing Expectations

One Important Revelation About Mother’s Day and Managing Expectations

Belated  Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers.

Unfortunately, last week I was unable to blog. I hit my six month of pregnancy and caught a sinus infection. On the external, my husband had a broken tooth pulled, my mother had an appointment she needed support on and I still have a pre-schooler to care for. Whoa! What a week!

I’m so grateful to have most of the turbulence from last week settled and we are back to a calmer groove. The thing is life happens and sometimes it just happens all at once, which means there isn’t much you can do but hunker down and ride the wave. I made sure to find time for self-care (longer showers, essential oils and sleep were my best friends last week) but otherwise just focused on making sure everyone had what they needed. All of this led to Mother’s Day! Oh, I forgot to mention, my husband had to work on Saturday, so I my expectations for the Mother’s Day were really low. I don’t mean it in a depressing way but rather that the reality of the situation is that everyone was tired and holidays can be stressful. Stress was the last thing I wanted for Mother’s Day

3 Lies You Tell Yourself About Motherhood

Lies we tell ourselves about motherhood

Growing up, my mother stayed home with my brother and I. When my mom decided to stay home, it wasn’t a difficult choice for her. She had us at a young age and in her country mothers stayed home with their kids. It was wonderful having my mom pick me up everyday, being there for me in order to help me navigate the difficult transitions throughout childhood. Meals were always prepared, she went on school trips with me and my teachers knew her well.

When I was 11 she decided to finished her high school diploma and eventually became a teacher; it was a profound moment for all of us. She tells me, how she came to believe that she had to be a certain way to be a good mother and it took her a long time that this wasn’t true. My mother discovered a passion of hers and followed through on making it a reality. She let go of many of the lives she told herself about motherhood and in whatever role she played in my life I learned a great deal from her.
