1 year ago, I was so angry. Full of so much jealously and envy for those who could take the time to “self care” in beautiful instagramable floral baths. Specifically those without children, who (seemingly) have all the time in the world to head to a morning yoga class, guzzle down a latte, colorfully journal daily gratitude or set monthly intentions in crayola ( like I did in my pre-baby days). Dreamy, beautiful, peaceful down time. Something I sure as hell didn’t get in my first year postpartum, aka the fourth trimester. My first year as a new parent rocked me. I felt like I’d never get a minute alone to breathe, let alone actually take care of myself. Gym time was literally impossible. It’s not #noexcuses as a parent, especially when you’re doing it alone often. Because my #excuse was parenting. There’s conflicts with babysitters, separation anxiety and more that make going to the gym impossible. Alone time was impossible. Brushing my teeth was nearly impossible. Not a lie. But honestly letting go of my old job gave me the life I wanted and desperately craved. Becoming my own boss saved my sanity and saved my life. I am definitely not saying this rub it in, because that kinda stuff pisses me off. I’m saying it because I’m grateful for this life. I’ve manifested all I ever wanted, held onto my faith and trusted everything would eventually get better. And it did. So if seeing baths like this really irritate you, remember that you’ll get your moment again soon. This season of life will pass. Your wildest dreams are attainable. And the universe wants to see you RISE! ✨🙏🌺 #motherhoodrising#selfcare#realtalk#bathgoals#spiritual#theuniversehasyourback#mompreneur#fourthtrimester#postpartum#motherhood#momlife
🌟⏱this is a super important reminder that you should definitely take time to read!⏱🌟 I think we forget that as human beings there’s no right or wrong time or way to do something, only the way society or those around us tell us to do. You are in control of YOUR life. Don’t let your life decisions be influenced by a psychological construct such as time. If you feel in your gut you are ready or not ready for something, than stick with it!

Being beautiful doesn’t come in just one shape, size or color. Being beautiful is like @moderndaywonderland. It’s like me. It’s like you. It’s like us. It’s all of the little details that make you, YOU! Beautiful looks tall and short and skinny and fat and black and white and mixed. Beautiful is endless. And the greatest thing about being beautiful, is that there is no other beautiful quite like you.
Tag a beautiful mama and remind her why she is beautiful and wonderful and all of the above.
Life never shakes out exactly as we expect. Sometimes we get the short end of the stick, and sometimes we get a situation beyond our wildest dreams.
Sometimes things feel profoundly unfair, and other times we luck out. Regardless, we can’t let ourselves be at the whim of the whirlwind around us. We must be conscious about how we spend our days because how we spend our days, in the end, is how we spend our lives! 💕
