This is for all the super moms out there!
In this century, as women, we are so used to multitasking and getting everything done! We work hard and we have high standards, we are determined and we are high achievers. Falling short or not living up to our own standard is not what we can tolerate. We know what we want, how we want to it and we work hard to get it.
After giving birth, you are tired both emotionally and deprived of sleep, your body is exhausted. You also go through all different types of emotional challenges due to hormonal changes. As you are getting used to taking care of your little one, your body is trying to heal, so let others help you. I know you’re very used to doing it all on your own and you do have a strategy on how to tackle each task but this is the time YOU need some support.
Let others help you. Let your family help you. Let your friends help you. Do not feel bad. Do not think less of yourself. If someone asks, “what can I do?” give them a task as little as putting groceries away, taking garbage out, emptying or filling up the dishwasher or even starting a load of laundry. Each and every little help will add up at the end of the day and you will find yourself less frustrated, feeling more accomplished. We all know that you can do it all on your own! You know that you can do it all! Your husband knows you can do it all! This is one time that you don’t have to prove yourself so just relax, sit back and enjoy the moment. Remember this is not a marathon, it is the time to enjoy being with the family and bonding with your little bundle of joy. It is the time to get some rest and recover back to 100%. Remember it’s not just you any more and right now you have a little one that depends on you 100% of the time!
let me know what you think! I want to hear about your experience, feelings and thoughts 🙂
