There are a lot of days that I go to write this blog and feel like everything I have to say revolves around my son. Maybe because everything does revolve around him. His feedings, naps, diapers, bath time, eatings, play time, naps! I could go on and on.
There are days where I don’t do my hair, and I feel success if I remember to brush my teeth before 3pm! But then there are days where I got more than 4 hours of sleep and I shower and actually put on clothes and I feel much better about myself.
It’s very easy to lose yourself being a new mom, new wife..well new anything! You immerse yourself in your job of what is in front of you forgetting about “me” Somedays I appreciate that. Others I want to cry. I long for sleep. I long for the days where I could do anything I wanted. I long for my old body. And that is totally okay!
It is okay to wish for 3 extra hours of sleep. It’s okay to look in the mirror and hate what you see. BUT, there is a but!
You have to have a perspective, I try to have an eternal one. One that isn’t totally worldly and narcissist. One where family and love is most important. I am trying to center my life more around my spiritual self and not get wrapped up in Manolo’s and overpriced purses. It’s hard, but its what makes me a happier person.
Pink makes me happy. Its always been my favorite color. So today (well last week) I wore all pink. I took my son and husband for a walk and I felt like I really liked what I saw in the mirror.
Heaven knows that what I woke up like is a FAR FAR cry from these pictures below.
I want to know, what do you do that makes you feel happy, like legit happy?
