WHMP: 4 December 2017
Me being the person I am, for my entire life always put others before myself. To protect, care for, advocate for and support them! It has been a huge and really difficult shift for me to adjust to allowing myself to put myself first for a change. For me to stop and acknowledge that it’s ok to put myself first for a change without guilt or retribution. It’s taken me a long time to understand and accept that it’s not only ok but it’s actually important to spend time on myself for myself!
Until days like today come along…all plans of what I want to do in my day for myself goes flying out the window at a rapid pace and I go into “Mum mode”. When my cub is unwell, I turn into a grizzly bear that will do anything and everything within my power to protect my cub!
And if that means I don’t go to the gym because he wants mummy cuddles or I eat a small amount of noodles as he wants some of my chicken noodle soup or I’m completely exhausted because I’m up half the night tending to my little pooping and spewing monkey then so be it!
No matter what changes I have made in my life one thing that will NEVER change is that regardless of whatever is going on in my life I will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be a Mum first and do whatever I need to do to look after that little man!
