I knew my life would change when I became a Mommy, but I never truly understood the impact this tiny human would have on me. My perspective and everything that I believed to be important prior to the arrival of my baby girl seemed so trivial. Now this sweet, fragile human is counting on me! It’s important now more than ever that I am the best version of myself and unfortunately she didn’t come with a handbook.
Trying to juggle a high pressure career along with being a new mommy left me at times feeling like I was spinning too many plates.
How can you succeed at it all and not let anyone down? My inner voice was powerful, resounding and in the beginning, extremely critical. It took months for me to calm the noise and get to a place where I didn’t feel like the candle was burning at both ends! I am a work in progress.
As I grew as a mommy and became more comfortable in my new normal, our bond became stronger and our love overflowed. We became each others biggest fans. I look forward to coming home after a long stressful day to see her face light up when I walk in the room. I am greeted with the biggest smile and if I’m lucky sometimes a scream of pure joy! Thinking about it makes smile! Who knew you could love something this much!
The best part is….this is just the beginning of our journey!
