Celebrating My Journey To Motherhood

My draft disappeared shortly before this post and now, I am not in a calm state of mind to write anything “inspirational”. Yeah. This is because I am too joyful to write.

Happy Birthday To Me

If you’ve been a follower of my writings, then you’ll know I draw from my feelings. My emotions. My heart. However, right now I want to be out FEELING MY FEELINGS. 

It’s not so easy to write when I’m happy. Neither because I have less feelings or feelings about those feelings, nor because my happy feelings are any less worthy of being written about than my heartbreaking feelings, but simply because being happy makes me want to go out and scream than sit down to reflect.

I don’t want to talk; I want to do. I don’t want to reflect; I want to be. So it’s harder, much harder, to write today. 

Only a mum knows the happiness of becoming a mum. Oh my! The arrival of a baby brings so much joy that sometimes it becomes hard to find words to express the emotion.

This Journey is not just about "having a baby," it’s becoming a mother. Starting a new role. A new challenge. A new identity. And despite what society might have us believe, it doesn't happen overnight. It takes time. It's taken me about a year to prepare. And just like the hungry caterpillar, I have had to learn to use my new wings before realizing their beauty.

I will be sharing my pregnancy journey in subsequent posts as well as my journey to motherhood. It starts here!

Happy Birthday to me!
