Vera en Vero. A year ago I gave birth to this Bella Bambina. ๐Ÿ˜ This was also the day that I was reborn and born a Mother. This year hasn't been without setbacks and challenges but it certainly has been the most amazing year watching this girl's soul shine. I'm so very in Love and so crazed with the Bond that we have. My best friend. My love. The Light in my Heart. Happy Year to Us baby girl! ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‰

What I have discovered in this most recent energy shift is that complacency in your comfort zone is really just self prison. I have made some leaps recently allowing me to realise that staying stuck in my old comfortable ways was causing blockages all over the place, and not allowing me to experience my abundance fully. So when you feel like you can't live life the way it is and you need a change for the better. โœจSTEP OUT OF YOUR SELF PRISON and INTO a life that rewards you with the happiness and confidence you deserve.โœจ If there was a time, I'd say today's new moon signals it. So go for it. Today is the day. Go for what turns your soul on and let go of what brings it down! You will never been able to control others. So control yourself and create a life that brings you joy everyday! ๐Ÿ™Œ

It fair to say that I'm an excitable person, sometimes to a fault... often times need a quick calming soothe down in the tub to reset whatevers got me riled up, and calm down before bed. As my sleeping habits are crucial with a baby. Tonight was an exceptional bath that's left me feeling warm, relaxed and refreshed for tomorrow's portal to equilibrium and divinity between mind body and spirit, mixed with a better understanding of our soul's journey here.
โœจ
Tonight's bath recipe included:
Eucalyptus oil and dried leaves; to aid in deeper breathing,
Lavender oil; to calm and get ready for bed,
Apple cider vinegar; to detoxify,
And a litre of purified water to drink while you soak. If you're like me you'll like this bath nice and steamy to get all essential oil's aromatics.

Nothing more. Nothing less. Great art. I don't know who the artist is. .
Something deeply drew me to this goddess. .

IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!
Bottom line. When someone treats you disrespectfully, it is likely because of issues they hold deep within themselves.
You are not any less of a wonderful person because somebody else is at war with themselves.
A reminder for when you are dealing with people who "just can't". #notyourfault #youarewonderful #respect #selflove #reminder #advice #share #loveyourselffirst #donttakeitpersonally #observedontabsorb #selfhelp #walkaway

10/10
So it's been well over a month since I started my posts and almost 3 months of treatment. I'm feeling quite a lot better, and have many less bad days, and bouts of crying and the adverse effects are few at this time... I'm extremely proud of myself for being able to hold it together while I've been on my own with V. I wished so desperately I could have hidden away somewhere for at least a month while my meds balanced out and I recovered.. All the punches make you stronger though Rolling with them only makes them sting less. This sure was one punch that was hard to roll with. My experience with Postpartum depression has helped shape the type of person and mom I will be. I got help for myself and pushed through for my daughter. I hope that anyone suffering from mental illness can find the courage to get help and to get well. It will change your life... All in all, I feel stronger, more capable, more unbreakable, confident. I hold comfort in the fact that my heart is pure and whatever the universe has planned for me is better than what I believed 3 months ago. โœŒ๏ธ
๐ŸŽถI'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now๐ŸŽถ @ladygaga
For the inspo.
** For anyone hurting please know that I am always here to listen/support you. **

9/10 We spent the day with a mom and baby that we met at our mommy group about 5 months ago. I'll take a moment to thank her and the rest of the mommies and babies that have been a huge support system to V and I. They have lent ears, hands and hearts to us during my battle with PPD. We are so grateful for their support and on going love. These women keep me so grounded their babies make amazing first friends for Vera. The long winter with PPD would have been a write off without their support.
So this is one way that I reached out to people. Making mommy friends was the best decision I made. Who better to hang out and chat with? They're new moms too! That's exactly what I needed. For anyone interested these guys listed below, organise great mommy and me groups around the city.

8/10 My heart will eternally beat for this one.๐Ÿ’— Being a mom felt very natural for me but the emotions that came with it didn't. I suppose experience is one way of learning what you might expect. And, it certainly doesn't happen to all new moms; 1 in 10 new moms experience PPD, but that's just it. Social media is a constant flaunt of possessions, perfections, and popularity votes, emotional carelessness, fake news and clickbait, and advertising for cheap gimmicks from China. We shouldn't be sharing that crap. We should be using it to spread more awareness, help people, and drive our modern day humanity to love and healing over spreading hate with your emotional insecurities. Ding ding. Time to check ego at the door or keep the lies you tell yourselves to your bathroom mirror when you're home alone. *
Anyhow, we don't often hear about the negative, the sadness, the hormonal peaks and quick drops, the isolation in the first year, maybe well into the second or third year of motherhood, if you don't reach out for help. Anyways - this is part of my attempt to spread some awareness on postpartum depression and make positive use out of social media.
So ask for help. No matter how defeated you feel, it will get better. Sending out love to all the moms today who feel they are alone in their internal battles. ๐Ÿ˜˜

7/10 At some point you need to look deeply inward and focus on what matters to you most. We become what we focus on. This is the power of manifestation. And this is why it is so important to manage healthy thought habits. It is very seldom and sometimes hard for some to take the plunge into the bigger picture pool... Something that is very hard to do when you feel like you're drowning in the day to day depression of motherhood in my case. I'm just starting to get my bearings back, so I'm zero-ing in on my true self and taking care of my daughter's soul, I've opted to take a media vacation so I can make space to breathe life into the things that make my engine roar. Marie Kondo style.. "if it doesn't bring you joy..."

6/10 Through everything I have dealt with in motherhood so far, these eyes are always there to look at. They are my reminder of light, love and happiness. So in all the crappy feelings, there is still this most amazing connection I have with this human, and she always makes it okay. She makes it all worth it. She is my reason. ... What is worth it, all the side effects that come with being treated for PPD...you go from dreading everyday, to very slowly not dreading it, and then managing a whole other set of symptoms(side effects). Extreme fatigue, constant nausea (an unpleasant reminder of how bad my morning sickness was) , loss of appetite, spacing out, restlessness, inability to concentrate, HEADACHES to name a few.. 8 weeks in, and while I feel less depressed, the side effects are still balancing out in my body, and they are slowly ceasing day by day. It has been a tough 8 weeks, but I feel much better than I did the day of, and weeks leading up to talking to my doctor. .

5/10 At some point I recognized I needed some help. I was always tired, I isolated myself from family and friends, I ate my emotions, all day, everyday. I was miserable. I hated myself, I couldn't look in the mirror anymore. My soul and desires were completely deflated. My eyes were dark, I was crying constantly, and wanting to just run away from life. And the biggest thing, was I definitely didn't want to talk about my situation at all. All the while feeling constantly berated when anyone expressed interest in chatting with me. I went on a couple months getting worse until I had to get up and say I need to get help. For me. For my child.
Here's the thing, I love her. This face, these eyes, those hands and feet. Her smile lights up my world. She is the light. I'm so grateful for her. She chose me for reasons we will discover with our journey of life together. So how could I possibly have felt so terrible inside? The mom guilt was huge. .
