Being a mother is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences a woman can have. It is the privilege to nurture and raise another human being. You may have tried to imagine what motherhood will look like and even made plans before you became one.
But now that you are a mother, you must have realized that it is the most unpredictable journey ever. Nothing prepares you for it.
With the joys of motherhood comes the endless sacrifices you have made for your beautiful kids. Sometimes, it leaves you wondering ‘how could a journey so beautiful be full of compromises?’
We understand. As a mum, several times, you have neglected your own needs and prioritized the needs of your kids and family at large. It may seem like yours don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things as long as you’re still holding it together. The truth is it does.
You matter. And we need you to understand the importance of completely falling in love with yourself. Remember why you loved life even before your beautiful children came along. Remember to keep loving yourself and life . That way, you can be better caregivers to your children.
To help you love yourself better, here are three powerful Rs to guide you.
Motherhood is an endless journey. Yes, your kids will grow and be able to guide themselves or cater for themselves but the journey never really ends.
So, why not renew? If the journey never really ends, you might as well re-discover yourself. Do a little soul-searching. Re-discover or discover what makes you happy, fulfilled or gives you that sense of purpose.
It could be a healthy dose of fun activities, a dream or just having a say in what goes on in your life. Whatever it is, love yourself enough to know that it is okay. Love yourself to a point where you find joy in doing those things again. Love yourself better so you can love your kids even more.
When you discover or re-discover yourself again, be happy. It took a lot of work for you to get to this point, so be excited about it.
To re-energize, you need to consciously guard your sense of purpose. The one you just discovered again. Protect it. That is your light, your shine, your happiness.
Be intentional about practicing those things that interests you, again. Sometimes, the ‘mum-guilt’ may sneak in. It will tell you that you are now a mum and therefore, not allowed to have this much fun. It will tell you it is selfishness to seek your own happiness.
But guess what? You will shun it. Discard such thoughts because self-love is okay! How can you even love another person if you don’t even love yourself?
Stay energized for yourself, stay energized for the family.
Here comes the restoration part. This is the part where you have to be fully confident in your new-found happiness.
You are the most important person in your life, protect you first so you can protect your family. In restoring, we encourage you to take that long walk, meditate, start that fitness plan, start vlogging, etc. Just do you! It changes nothing, really.
In fact, it helps you glow better. You will radiate joy and love like never before and the whole family gets to feel this too.
