I know you’re tired, I know you’re stressed, and I know you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. But everything’s going to be okay momma. Our entire existence revolves around taking care of our little ones. Making sure they’re eating enough, and getting enough sleep. Constantly having to make sure they stay out of harms way. All while maintaining a household. Cooking, laundry, cleaning, picking up all of the things you just picked up five seconds ago because your ten month old is into everything (that’s my life anyway).
But do not lose yourself in the process. Don’t lose that spark that makes you who you are. You were once your own person with her own ideas, hobbies, career, and her own life. Please don’t let this person go.
Yes, you had to put everything on hold for a bit so you could raise your little ones. And that’s okay. You are their world, and they love you and appreciate you more than anyone ever has and ever will. Just know that even on your worst days, you’re raising a tiny little human to become the best person they can be. And you’re doing a great job.
That girl who loves painting, that girl who used to write poetry, that girl who knows how to dance like no one is watching; she’s still in there. And do not fret, because she will have her chance to shine again.
