Wow!!! This is one topic that has my heart. I can’t stop talking about it because it’s the main essence of life. As a mom, you have to be emotionally, physically and mentally ready. Don’t choose to be a mom because you think you are running out of time. You need the right footing.
BEING A MOM COMES WITH RESPONSIBILITIES
Having a child or birthing a child doesn’t make you a mom either, what makes you a mom is taking charge of that responsibility and being selfless to nurture a young life to grow. This might cost your sleep at night, your fine shape, your best clothes wouldn’t fit any more, there wouldn’t be so much of an alone times anyone, hanging out with friends and late-night movies will reduce too. So much for been a mom right? As a mom what’s in it for you…
I remember growing up as a child, I was always clinging to my mom and looking up to her for support. And looking forward to her words of encouragements, but when I don’t get it, I feel sad and not inspired enough. As a mom, your kids look up to you for support because you are the first person they come in contact with and there are a lot of stuff (genes) binding you together. So you need to be ready for all that.
ARE YOU READY FOR IT?
One question I ask young people who want babies, Are you ready to be selfless for a period of time? If your answer is yes, then you are ready to be a mom. As a mom, you are a caregiver, an emotional support system and a role model. As a mom, you keep learning and gaining strength you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you didn’t know to exist.
You make a choice to put someone else happiness and well being ahead of your own. You become a teacher and you teach lessons that will benefit a young life, a lot of times you are not even sure the lesson is right but yet you teach in faith believing it will have an effect.
Being a mom can be really complicated, but it’s a thing of joy when your kids make you proud or they take their first step or say their first word. Children are beautiful creatures and you can’t do away with their uniqueness and charms. You have them you are blessed. All you owe them is Love, care, and nurturing. As a mom, know that every day is a new and good day with these blessings called children. I once heard a man say womanhood is difficult really, is it? For some people, the answer is yes! To others they are already prepared for all it will take so, they really don’t care what comes with it; they only look for a way to adjust into fitting that new position.
IS BEING A MOM DIFFICULT?
Is that difficult? Well adjusting to a new lifestyle is not easy but you can.
Your life doesn’t have to come to a halt because you have kids. You can still balance your life and have your dream life. All you have to do is learn how to balance between your dream, passion and your family. Have it in mind that being a mom really means a lot.
I tell every parent who complains about their kids playing too much and troubling them to enjoy the moment. The moments with kids are really priceless. When they become Teenagers that’s another phase of life entirely.
So enjoy every moment with your kids and above all enjoy being a mom. As a mom, God has strengthened you for that task. Just stay afloat with the times, learn new things, and get to know what’s in vogue so you are not left out on the happenings with your kids.
” As a mom, you are a teacher, friend and a role model to your kids, be that and less”
