| Mom Rant |
Paused my work today for an experiment. An experiment on myself. A challenge to myself. .I swear, it was the challenge of the #selfie. The fackin selfie. The selfie I have avoided since becoming a mom. Avoided since becoming so sleep deprived, so dehydrated, so emotionally, physically, spiritually deprived. Motherhood changed my face. It dried it up.
And I didn't like how it looked.
Maybe my chronic state of dehydration wasn't the best choice 🤔(ugh). I struggle with drinking water. I don't know why but it's hard for me to get enough water in the day. My midwife recommended teas, juiced, etc. Ok fine.
And now I find myself judging myself for this. I'm shaming myself for this; for not taking care of my water needs. And judging myself for how I look.
WHY. Why do we do this as women ?? Knit pick what we look like. Even if we believe all the women in our lives are BEAUTIFUL, it is still hard to not knit pick our own selves. .working on self acceptance on all levels.
I don't know if I sound stupid or not. But I'm tired of hiding behind the facking camera. . I WANT TO love the pictures of myself w my kids and not think I "look tired" aka bad. I want to see a tired picture of myself and still think it's beautiful. I want to love everything about myself so I can show how my kids to love themselves. . .
.so. .STOP THIS.
.rewire the mind.
STOP hating on yourself for the things you don't "do right".
Consciously rewording the negative language in my thoughts to sweet, supportive ones. I'm making a commitment to loving and nurturing myself. No matter what I look like.
.DRINK MORE WATER.(duh)
.love myself myself, yes i do. .and REPEAT
If you find yourself in a negative thought pattern, don't keep beating yourself up. Stop, pause, reconnect with your heart, and begin to view your situation from a loving state of mind. .
Because if you don't, who will?
.I will drink more water because I love myself. #ilovemyselftoday #waterislife #keepdrinkingwater #stayhydrated #nomakeup #nofilter #autenticagoddess .
