I often hear moms say that they no longer feel like themselves. But the truth is, you are always changing, and you are always yourself.
At 2, feeling like yourself was scribbling on walls and playing with your toy kitchen.
At 6, feeling like yourself was swinging at the park and learning to ride your bike.
At 12, feeling like yourself was having crushes and listening to music.
At 17, feeling like yourself was going to school dances and writing college essays.
At 22, feeling like yourself was drinking too much and staying out all night.
Now, at 28, this version of yourself is watching your kids play with their toy kitchen. You’re pushing your kid in the swing at the park. You’re listening to nursery rhyme music. You’re up at night with your new baby. You’ve traded in the heels for more practical tennis shoes that allow you to chase your toddler around.
So which of these versions of yourself makes you FEEL like yourself They ALL should have at times, because they are ALL you. You are still yourself after changing 100 diapers. You are still yourself when you opt to go to bed at 8pm because you know you’ll be up three times during the night. You are still yourself, just a different version of yourself at a different point in your life. Embrace it.

Feeling overwhelmingly thankful for my Rodan and Fields family. They are supportive, funny AF, strong, wicked smart, encouraging and love to celebrate other's victories. Want a piece of this Let's do some talking!
I baked cinnamon rolls this week and realised I clearly don’t bake much because I completely forgot about them and they never even got eaten... probably one of the most heartbreaking fails to date.
How blessed am I to be the mother of two unicorns and one dragon! 🦄 🦄 🐉 #trendypixeldesigns
#productreview I was researching #babyproducts before my baby was born and came across this on @amazondotin these #changingmats from @teddyyindia are life changing especially while travelling within the city- travelling out of the city
*they are lightweight and portable. Folded into squares can be slipped into a diaper bag or a suitcase.
*when we travel, they become our diaper changing station on the bed. It’s a large enough square that even if my 5m old wiggles around, there’s enough room for “accidents” to happen
*they are multi-use. Can be used for naked time, massage time, diaper changes or can be used as a hygiene layer for diaper changes anywhere outside of home- Ive used it at airports, airplane, hotels, malls, people’s homes!
DEFINITELY recommend @teddyyindia changing mats!!! .

It’s not very expensive and
When you become a mom, your whole world is suddenly consumed by this little being. They rule your life with their schedule and steal your entire heart just by being. But when is the time when they are taking over your life, when you feel like you are loosing yourself, is there a fine line between loving too much and obsession Or are you just trying to provide and not able to give them all you think they deserve, trying to keep your sanity and needing time alone. Am I a bad mother Is there too much Is there too little Answer is, There is no right or wrong answer to motherhood. We are all just winging it and trying to do the best we can with what we have and hope that they will love us with every ounce of their being like we do for them. #mom #daughter #momanddaughter #girlmom #onlinetrainer #family #momlife #postpartum #onlinetraining #fitmom #momsfitness #momjourney #motherhood #babygirl #twinning #minime #samom
Slow sweet Mindful chunks of life. 🦋
As much as I thrive from the flow & fluidity, I crave and need those pauses.
Have you ever experienced someone being your mirror My mirror is my chill hard husband, my calm, my anchor. Reminding me to slow down, to stop stressing & to basically *inhale + exhale*. Does this phrase sound familiar 🤫
A reminder from me to you ~
#notetoself #breathe #meditate
Once you let go of the need to hustle, hunt and stress your way from just a baby of an idea to actually offering your genius services and products to the world...
You’ll be able to enjoy the excitement of the journey and embrace all of the twists and turns along the way.
Trust me...There was a time I stayed up most of the night as a new mom, spent every second behind my computer, spammed my friends and social - until I said eff it let’s see what happens if I just enjoy the journey and do what I love.
Magical things happened and my life + business (because they are integrated and not isolated) exploded with abundance.
