• “Motherhood, I'm realizing, has humbled me. I am able to listen and learn from those who have raised babies before me. I've allowed myself to be vulnerable and have accepted help from others.
Giving up on the need to have control over every aspect of my daughter's life helped me calm down and accept that no one expected me to be perfect, so I shouldn't put that pressure on myself. I lessened my grip on trying to control everything and I let go of the unrealistic need to do everything just right—I became more pleasant to be around, and I actually enjoyed motherhood more.
So, my friend, if you're feeling overwhelmed, or like these new mama feelings are all just too big—hang in there.
The hard moments will pass as quickly as they came and will be replaced with a darling smile or a sweet babble that will make you forget it happened.
Motherhood is one of those "you don't know until you know" type of things. And now that I know, it's way better than I could have ever imagined.” A quote I got from online and could totally relate to it ❤️ Photo by @magicliwanag
