Dear Future Self

Headed Somewhere BlogThere are days that this little life of mine doesn’t seem real. Where I feel so lucky it makes me feel a little tinge of guilt. How could I be this lucky? This sweet babe calls me mama. He is growing and developing in a healthy, active body everyday. He is learning so much, he is so smart. And this little boy has a father who loves him so much, and who also loves me…. And tells me everyday. Some days I just can’t even believe it all.

Then there are days where I forget all of this… Too many days. Where I feel sad and lonely and everything just seems too hard. So today, while I am feeling every joy of this blissful life, I am writing it down. For my future self to read.

Dear Future Self:

Stop being sad right this minute. There is absolutely nothing to be sad about. This is what you wanted. Your life is beautiful. Go enjoy it.


Your happy self.

    Amen to this! Yes! My motto right now is “being sad is silly.”

    This is something that I needed to read. I totally agree with your feelings! I think as mamas we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be the perfect wife and mother (along with our other roles). But it’s good to take a step back once in awhile (heck, even daily!) and remind ourselves that we are enough, we are good wives and mothers, we are doing the best job we can, and this life, with all of its responsibility, is a good one! You got this, ML – motherhood is a very special gift!
