My personal musings of motherhood and my journey as a new mother

Trade-offs

Having a baby is such a joy,but the journey to motherhood varies for everyone. For some the journey might have been fun and exciting, for others it might be scary and daunting. For my own personal journey it was an amalgamation of emotion, sometimes lonely and scary, at times bittersweet, rays of hope and excitement in between but always, there is a sense of wonderment and awe in the thought that there is a tiny living being growing inside of me every single day.

When my baby boy was born that was the only time I fully understood that mothers and babies are born at the same time. A person won't know ones' capability to love another human being unless he or she has become a parent themselves.

I have made a few sacrifices along the way to my journey to motherhood. But I will never trade my baby for anything. A high-powered career for some women might be the epitome of their success, but for me seeing my baby smile at me and hugs me for no reason at all, is enough validation for me as a mother, and as a woman.
