I once read that when you are a mom, you are the light of the family. You are the first source of love for your husband and your children. So let me ask you, do you think you can give yourself the same amount of love you give to your family?
The answer to that is definitely yes! And mind you, the more you love yourself, the more you become better not just in being a wife, being a mom, but being the super woman that you are! This is actually based on some mother’s journey of becoming the best version of themselves through loving themselves more than ever.
How I Changed My Mommy Life After I Loved Myself More
I will now be enumerating how and what I did so I can take care and give more importance to myself more than ever.
•Know That You Matter
Before you had your kids, before you had your husband, your world revolves around your own self. The only life that gives you life is yours. And just because you started building your own family doesn’t mean your no longer part of your priorities. Hey, you’re still you. And besides, a home won’t be complete without its light. You are the light so do your best to shine brightly. You are as important as everyone else in the family so appreciate yourself more and know that you matter.
•Discover Your Passion
When you do something that you really love,you will start feeling so good. Not only that you can monetize that, but you can also use that as your stress reliever. As for me, it took a while before I made up my mind about pursuing my passion in writing and start blogging. The first time i did a blog post and realized that other mommies all over the world are reading my blog, It felt surreal! I was so happy that I finally found what could truly stir my blood and soul. Then I started loving myself more. Little by little, I was showing to my kids the “mommy” that I am inside my blogs. I started living through it. Love came overflowing not just for me but for the entire family.
•Look Good, Feel Good
Before I decided on this one, I was a stay at home mother for more than 4 years. I looked ugly, and I think I looked pitiful those times. Not only that I don’t have enough budget for skin care and all, but I was thinking it won’t be good if I spend my husband’s money only to make me feel and look good when I’m not helping the family financially. But after taking a lift and started monetizing my blogging, It occured to me how much different it is to have your own income and start taking care of your wants and needs to take care of your looks too. When I started looking a lot better, I can feel that my eldest son, who is almost 5 yrs old now, felt happy and proud of that I did. For the firat time, he told me I am so beautiful.
After that, I can slowly point out how everything flowed so well for me and my journey in motherhood.
•There’s No Way that You Are Perfect, so Don’t Pressure Yourself too Much Over Things
Being a human, wa are bound to commit mistakes. Know that you are not a perfect mommy so give yourself a chance to do better next time. Love yourself in every stage of motherhood. When you understand that, you will become much more patient for yourself and for everyone around you. Try to keep your cool.
The moment you understand, acknowledge and appreciate yourself, you will start loving yourself more. By doing that, you also give yourself the chance to do better in being a wife and a mother, and of course, being a person who shed light among others and shine even more brighter for yourself.
