Recently someone asked me if motherhood brings on energy you never knew you had. At the time I wasn't quite sure how to answer, but I quickly answered yes because I felt embarrassed that I never experienced it before. I have been extremely tired emotionally and physically and felt like I have been short changing both of my children.
Today I came to a realization, I am my own worst critic. I woke up with yet again little sleep, but in such a good mood because I was happy and proud to be apart of Izzy's and Audrey's life and to be able to take care of them. My imagination tends to get the better of me and I think of devastating situations; the 'what if'' game.
Circling back to my main point. Today is the first time I felt like I finally found my 'hidden' energy deep inside. It felt very rewarding. Hopefully I'll have more days like today!
