The story begins some years ago! My husband and I lived our lives to the most and after 8 years decided to enlighten our life with a child. Guess what! I began to be a MOTHER!
I was emotionally fulfilled and over the moon, such a brilliant experience, but at the same time I found myself struggling with the ambiguity of my new mom self. I needed to maintain my previous self, that much productive, hard work, successful but this time with my mom role, taking precedence over others. Besides that, I was so overwhelmed with various concerns. I suppose motherhood puts a burden on my shoulders to think twice about the authenticity of every single decision I make, and the possible impacts on my kid’s life. That was when I raised my environmental awareness and became more cautious for the sake of the planet. To protect it for our children…
I realized that I’m a role model for my little kiddo and that stems from my firm belief that “No influence is so powerful as that of the mother”. If I want my children to be happy, successful, confident, productive, healthy, and basically have all of the positive traits, then I just simply have to illustrate all of them in my own behavior and provide this atmosphere at home for them. If I don’t read a book once in a while, If I don’t pay attention to my self-development, If I don’t care about my nutrition and fitness, If I spend money recklessly without a plan, If I don’t care about the environment, If I have no plan for my day, week, month, year, If I have no goals at all to achieve…
then let’s face it…I shouldn’t expect my children to do them all.
This sentence is insanely true “Your child is a reflection of You”. Preaching is not an operational tool to adjust our children’s behavior. There is no such a forcing factor to turn our child from what is deriving from us to another child.
Therefore, I set One big goal for myself that overshadows all the other aims that I had before, and that was “to be the best version of ME” in all of my roles. To be the best role model for my daughter. To be a Happy, confident healthy contented productive mom and fulfill my call inside and outside of motherhood. It became my ultimate goal and my motivation to stop procrastinating whatever I wanted to change in my behaviors, achieve in my work life, and develop in myself. I also kept watchful eyes on the environment more than ever before because I wanted to play my own role, although small, to protect mother earth because, in fact, we borrowed it from our children. In addition, I tried to manage our finances more wisely to help the family economy by controlling the costs…All of these might seem like fruitless efforts to me before becoming a mother… but now… It was of vital importance…
The story short, I started to consult, read and search excessively to figure out the best solutions in motherhood and parenting, productivity, family wellness, and at the same time letting go of my worries about the future of my child from the environmental and financial standpoint. With lots of trial and error in the implementation phase, I could finally design a toolkit for my mom self to be with me in this journey of motherhood. In this path, I got acquainted with Minimalism and Mindfulness and these concepts suit me down to the ground. I found that a bunch of my challenges come from my mental loads that could easily be omitted and simplify my life.
And here I am, still on the progress but I made up my mind to listen to my inner voice and share my current wisdom and endeavors in my developmental process with you mom, and this is definitely an incremental learning opportunity for all of us. to broaden our horizon and to gain strategies we need to be our best selves.
