Hello new mamma!
Bringing a new soul into the world of wonders is a rewarding experience. It’s time to reflect upon some of the best life lessons that motherhood will bless you with. But motherhood also changes your life forever and it will never be the same again. Here are some life lessons you would wish to know that experienced moms swear by.
Your way is a perfect way, not the best way
There is no best iron-clad rule about bringing up your child, and at the end of the day, you are the mother here. While following a decorum is favourable to many, only a mother’s heart knows what’s “best” for her child.
Me-time makes things easier
Having a baby makes mothers think they have to give it all. It heightens their expectations. The frustration from everything heaped on your shoulders won’t feel as magical anymore. Hiring a babysitter when you are exhausted is completely fine. You deserve the time for yourself. A happier and relaxed mother is a better mother.
Keeping your expectations in check
Expecting your body to come back to shape and predict exactly how your baby will grow up are unreachable presumptions. Motherhood is about embracing those stretch marks and feeling grateful every day. This way, you can find the true meaning of life through your beautiful journey into motherhood.
Capturing every moment
You never know which moment is precious unless you leave the good old days. From their first walk to saying “Mom” for the first time, all the little experiences are moments to cherish. Years later, when you revisit those moments in pictures, you will realize how precious those seemingly little moments are.
Not be a people-pleaser
Last but not the least, after the baby your life will go on a new track. So, refrain from being a people pleaser. You and your baby are now weaving days of love for a lifetime. Bring all your mental energies into spending quality time with your baby and raise yourself up from all the worldly expectations. Remember, you cannot keep everyone happy.
