Beginning of 2018 I made a decision to hold myself accountable and start prioritizing myself. What I mean by that is, simply having my own personal goals outside of motherhood and to work hard to achieve them. I adore being a mother and it is truly my passion, when I became a Mum I found a sense of peace in the fact that I had finally found my “calling” or what I had always wanted to do in life. However running around after a toddler, managing a household, working, staying social, all of those external factors can see you stretched in so many directions as a mother and you can find yourself having nothing left to give. I have definitely come to realise over the past year that if I don’t really look after myself and put a huge emphasis on MYSELF and MY needs then how do I really show up be present and give myself to those I love the most?
