5 Things Motherhood Has Taught Me. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I am going to share 5 things Motherhood has taught me. The number 5 is becoming my favourite number now. I wonder why? Probably because I always give my daughter a High-Five when she has done something amazing. Anyway, lets jump right into the post.
Motherhood Taught Me
Love Is Real
Yes, you guys, Love Is Real. I don’t care what anyone says to me about ‘Love’, it’s real. As a parent, you experience Love every day and you show love every day. Without love, there’s no happiness. Love can get you to anywhere you want to be in life. Love is unconditional, pure and innocent. There is no other way around it.
You are Capable Of Anything
Although I was very excited about becoming a mother, I was filled with so much about raising a child. Within the last 5 years, I have been through depression, hit the lowest point of my life, shutting people out even my family. However, I bounced back and I have seen so much growth in my ability to grow from a young girl to a young woman than I have in the last 23 years of my life. I have also achieved more things such as, successfully passing through my first year of college, juggling between full-time Education, working part-time at the weekend, work placements and as well as being a mother. Now I’m halfway through my second year and working towards Higher National Certificate.
Be True To Yourself
Life is a very tough journey we all have to face, unfortunately. There is no point in pretending to be somebody your not and then struggle to keep up with it. You are better off on your own, other than live a life filled with negative energy. If people complain about something that makes you happy, shut them out. Life is too short.
Parenting is like leadership. This is because you are raising a child and the child will grow up and copy everything you do. That is why parents are advised to put a ‘good example’ in front of their children. However, we all know that is never the case and it is extremely difficult because you only know about you and what your parents taught you. In this case, you take leadership into your own hands. Listen to advice, good or bad and make your own judgement. Show your children that it’s okay to be yourself, it’s okay to have ‘weird dreams’ that people would never understand.
We are all unique. Everyone is different, for example, the way you drink water is different from the way the person next to you drink water. Are you kidding me? You mean you have not noticed that yet? Some people use a straw to drink water, some people don’t even use a cup, and there are some people who make some ‘mourning’ sound while drinking water. And that’s okay. People just got to accept themselves first and then people will follow you. Remember it takes one man with a passion for art to create one Masterpiece of art.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Motherhood is a lifetime journey. Once you are a mother, you will be a mother. Many things will come and go from different angles in life. Motherhood will always be there. Even if you sadly lost a child, you will do whatever it takes to have another child. Remember Motherhood is a gift, so do not take it for granted when it is given to you.
