“If you never try, you’ll never know what you are capable of." - John Barrow
As a mother, your capabilities are endless, only when you explore what you are actually capable of. It is sad, that many mothers tend to think that ignoring their own needs and just focusing on their children's needs is what's best for them, mistakenly thinking that this is what a mother should be doing.
Did you know that your child's self-esteem starts with you?! Your child is basically a reflective board. Children take in most of the things we do as mothers and reflect it back in one way or another. Hence, when you become a mother, your self-development becomes even more and more important and beneficial, not only for you, but, for the whole family. It is the only way for people to move forward, overcome their fears and bring out their best version. It isn't rocket science! It is so simple! When you bring the best out of you, automatically you are bringing the best out of your child. While, when you have unfulfilled needs it all reflects on your child and the family as a whole.
The more self-development you do, the more realizations and satisfaction you will achieve. Unfortunately, a perfect formula - fit for all- doesn't exist; which makes your motherhood journey so individual and unique to you.
I often tend to get this question: how can I do that? I have no time!
While, finding the time to do what you really want is a challenge on its own; a healthy family is a blessing & a joy - really. Over the years I have worked with so many mothers, many of them started off with the mindset that motherhood is the reason behind their anxiety, procrastination, anger, lack of time management as well as other things. Truth is, your expectations from self & others, your actions, your communication skills, how you perceive yourself &the world around you, is what really influences your life. Basically, it all boils down to you!! No matter how many children you have, whether you are a working or a stay-at-home mother; it is you that sets the bar for yourself & your family.
So if you are ready to start living the life you want, then step out of your comfort zone, grab and make the best out of this opportunity. You are in charge of your own happiness – NO ONE ELSE IS. You can do that!
