Motherhood a journey, Not a destination
Congratulations, you are going to have a baby, or two. LOL! The excitement and fear you feel are both normal and healthy. Taking on motherhood can be a mind blowing prospect. Yet, I encourage you to take it one step at a time. The #1 thing you need to be a great Mom is to just relax and be yourself.
Authenticity is the ability to line up your beliefs, thoughts, words, and actions and live accordingly. If you concentrate on it and loving your child, the battle is much less stressful. The rest us about the love, respect, nurture, and care you give on a daily and consistent basis. Remember, 85% of what your kids will learn from you will be from seeing what you do and how you do it. So, invite them into your world and do things with them. Keep in mind also what you say to them in the young years will become the ongoing tape in their heads when they are your age. Speak kindly and tell them the whole truth about who they are. Give them the benefit of the doubt and help them to correct mistakes and issues.
In the Miley Cyrus song "It's the Climb" she sings it best "it is not how fast you get there, or whats on the other side It is the climb." You have 365 days a year to love on your kids. Ultimately, motherhood is the journey you take with your child as they grow from the helpless babe in your arms to the full grown adult who will leave your home after deciding the next steps of their journey.
Here and now I encourage you to not only enjoy this time of pregnancy. But, the wonderful journey you are about to embark upon. Love and be true to yourself! You have got this, enjoy the climb and
