I wanted to enjoy life again. I felt like I didn't recognize the woman staring back at me in the mirror.
I wanted more for my life and my son's. I noticed, even before he was a year old, he was able to recognize when I was happy and when I was 100% in the moment. It was killing me that I was depressed, that I was never having any time to enjoy myself, that I felt alone, and was crying at night trying to balance working from home, being the provider, while also being an amazing mother.
One night, I decided I had had enough and wanted more. I wanted to get that glow again. I was going to be more confident, I was going to be more present in the moment, and I was going to be happier.
So what did I do?
I spent countless hours and weeks doing research on mommy-care and ways I could improve my-self overall. I didn't even know there was more than one way to practice mommy-care. I thought pampering yourself was the only way to show your self mommy-care.
TRACKED MY PROGRESS
I took all the information and started trying the different ways to practice mommy-care. Some things worked better for me and my schedule and lifestyle compared to others. But, taking the time to figure that out, helped me in the long run.
CHANGED MY LIFE
I saw the positive impact focusing on mommy-care had on myself and everybody around me. Mommy-care doesn't just help you, it also helps the relationships you have with people in your life.
