Not so long a go Adrian and me announced on how happy we were to expect our baby. My pregnancy was a magical journey. It teaches me a lot about being patient, loving and dicipline at the same time. But being a mother brought me to a different level of life. Before I had a child, I would worry about little things (at that time, those little things were things I considered big matters :D) Such as, things that are not at their places. Shoes here, books there or towels on the chair not on the rack. I would piss off when I was late to the meeting. I would be upset if I couldn’t come to a party or social events.
But after I hold my baby on my arms… Those seem not so important anymore 😛
I found it okay not to go around to some lunches with friends. I can live with the mess, even my house is a total mess now 😛 No more order. Toys are blocking the way, little car is here and there, not to mention all those mini tiny clothes that are everywhere 😛 I found it odd if my house is too clean. Is my son sick? Is he okay? Why didn’t he play at the house? And those negative thoughts pop up when I see my house is too tidy .Hahaha
I learn not to be selfish. Even I didn’t realize how selfish I was until being a mom shows me how selfless I can be 🙂 I already feel blessed if I can go to my dermatology once in two months. Forget about the hair spa or facial appointment, having a me time by reading a magazine uninterrupted for 30 minutes is a huge bonus! 😀 Pending some music concerts or canceling a holiday trip as my baby needs me are common. I get used to it without feeling upset.
Being a mom changes me, in ways I most didn’t expect. I work out on my soul to be more patient, caring and gentle. Well, I am not always successful, but I know I am better than I used to be. It doesn’t mean motherhood takes all my life and things I used to love… It just means that I re-prioritize what’s on my hands. Appreciate everything and makes the best of it.
Happy Friday, y’all :* How motherhood has changed you?
