But recently, I've been owning this whole existance much much more. Those ripped jeans and faded pink tee? I love how they both fit me perfectly. Take that pre-baby bod. Those dark circles? Nothing a little Bobbi Brown hydrating cream can't fix (or at least allow me to think so...) And guess what? Just getting to the gym. Sweating and a steam to simply do something for myself...alone!!!?? INDULGENT. I may not be as strong physically as before I had a kid but I'll get back there someday...and have a mental strength like I've never known. My resolve has a gentler side to it these days, a testiment to the personal growth that motherhood is providing to me on a daily basis.
How we perceive ourselves...how we speak to or silence our ego can make or break any moment. Choosing to see myself as someone who is energized and capable each and every day...that's what I know right now.
