Being a mother is the hardest job in the world. being a mother means being your best on daily basis and still not being confident if it was the bestest of you!
Each of the mothers around the world try their best to do all they can to become the best mother ever yet on many days they might feel like they’ve failed to do so…
so in way being a mother is as tricky as anything in the world!
i wasn’t sure of this fact until i myself experienced motherhood. being a mom made me learn a lot of lessons which i suppose can never be understood by ladies who still didn’t experienced motherhood.
here are a few lessons i learned being a mom!
TO LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY
being a mom has taught me to give love without expecting anything in return. since i first held my daughter in my arms i realized this is going to be the best relation i can ever experience and it proved to be one. i now spend each day of my life loving her unconditionally.
TO COMPROMISE ALL THE YOU HAVE TO WITHOUT FEELING BAD FOR EVEN A SECOND.
i remember the first party that i had to go to after i gave birth to my child. i couldn’t fit in any appropriate dress. all that i had were maternity dresses which i literally loathed. but not even once did i feel that it was the cost of having a baby. i still loved being a mom.
then the never ending demands of my baby girl throughout the night kept me up but the next day i was already to it all over again. it didn’t bother me.
forgetting and neglecting myself and becoming more of a mom rather than the old trendy girl i used to be still didn’t bother me…this all and many other changes that came into my life and transformed me completely do no make me regret having a baby. instead these experiences helped me learn the lesson of compromising for my loved one without evening feeling bad for once.
BEING A MOM MADE ME REALIZE THE WORTH OF MY MOTHER
now that i see how difficult it gets when it comes to parenting, i realize that my mom too went through the same scenarios. being up all night, forgetting one’s needs, throwing away your social life out of your life and many many other compromises that i have made have not only made me realize what a mother is but also that how wrong i was in judging my mom before i myself became one. i now know how she scarified many of her dreams to make me ready to face the challenges of this world efficiently. i now realize how wrong i was to argue and get angry at her decisions regarding my life that seemed stupid then and make so much sense now. i now know how dearly my mother loved me.
BEING A MOM MADE ME TURN TOWARDS THE BASICS THAT I HAD LONG FORGOTTEN
when my child started growing up and i realized i need to teach her the basics of living it struck me that i myself had forgotten all the basics. i forgot the basic norms, the basic religion and the basic etiquette while focusing on the deeper and larger perspectives of life. so being a mother made me recall and relearn all the basics.
BEING A MOM HAS MADE ME HEALTH CONSCIOUS
i was one of those who eat and drink to enjoy rather than to fill the stomachs with healthy food. i was a coke addict, a chocolate maniac, fast food lover and junk food was my best friend! i remember my mother scolding me to have milk, encouraging me to eat fruits and veggies, discouraging the colas and fast food, yet i didn’t even once consider dropping any of these. now when i started whitening my child i realized the importance of healthy food. i understood her fears and realized why she got all the time when she saw me eating unhealthy food. i know know the worth of healthy food.
being a mom has turned me into a much better person, or i shall say it has transformed me completely into a better human being.
