Me Before You (Motherhood version)

Hi everyone! It has been a while since we’ve seen each other, but hopefully I’ll try to catch up with you! I’ve been meaning to write this post since June, but today is the day!!! Lately I have been reflecting on how I have changed since becoming a mom. I’m not the type of a person who is always in tune with self, instead I often miss the cues my soul and body is telling me. I’m that kind of a friend who can easily diagnose who/how you are and the how to face your problems, but when it comes to myself… I’m not the same at all!

Since moving to California, my family’s life has been full of exciting events to not say the least! I can see how much we have grown as a family, as individuals, and in height ( I mean, Noah and Olivia are 3 and almost 2!!!). Therefore, I believe that I have been having more time and experiences that helped getting more in tune with myself.

Becoming a mother changed me in so many ways that I don’t think can put everything into words, but I’ll try by writing a little “poem” about it.

Me Before You ( Motherhood version)

Me before you felt independent, now I’m totally dependent of God’s mercy to be your mom.

Me before you was judgemental of everything and everyone, now I am tolerant about everything and everyone.

Me before you thought was strong, now I know I’m strong just like that day I saw a mouse and I didn’t scream.

Me before you was naive, now I know what I want and don’t want.

Me before you had hair and nails done every other week, now you have hair done everyday.

Me before you couldn’t cook, now I still can’t cook, but I try because of you.

Me before you was on top of all the news and tv shows, now all I know is Patati Patata and Nursery Rhymes.

Me before you didn’t know who I am or what to do, but now you teach me everyday of who I am and how strong I can be for you!

I love you Noah and Olivia. I’m the happiest person because you came to my arms and God gave the privilege to raise as my children!

Love,

Mamãe
