My Top 5 Life Lessons from Motherhood – The Moments That Changed My Perspective Forever

Becoming a mom was one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced, but it has also been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. There were moments during my journey as a mother when I learned more about myself than I ever thought possible. In this blog post, I want to share with you 5 life lessons that I learned from motherhood – moments that changed my perspective forever.

Lesson #1: It’s Okay to Ask for Help

One of the most important lessons I learned from motherhood is that it is okay to ask for help. When I became a mom, I quickly realized that I could not do everything on my own. I was exhausted and overwhelmed, and I felt like I was failing at this whole parenting thing.

As a young mother at the age of 17, I was blessed to have my mother as my biggest support system, even to this day. Without her, I would not be where I am today. I am so thankful for the lessons she taught me about motherhood, and for her never-ending support.

Lesson #2: It is Okay to Make Mistakes

I am not perfect, and I will never be. As a mother, I have made my fair share of mistakes, but I have also learned from them.

My biggest mistake, I am not proud of, is being in a relationship that wasn’t only unhealthy for myself, but also unhealthy for my child, because of the environment I had my daughter in. It was a time in my life when I didn’t love myself, I put others before me and my child. I was easily manipulated, and abused physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Do I have regrets? Yes! But I would not change anything because it contributed to the strong woman and mother I am today.

What matters most is that we learn from our mistakes and become better people as a result. We all make mistakes, but it is how we handle them that defines us.

Lesson #3: Motherhood has Taught Me to be Patient

There are days when my patience is tested like never before, but I have learned that it is so important to remain calm and always try to see the best in people and situations.

Now it’s one thing to have a teenager who has my whole attitude and personality traits, lol. But! It’s another thing to have a toddler who does what she wants, when she wants, runs the whole household and does things her way unapologetically, lol. I can deal with my teenager over my toddler any day, lol.

The Struggle Is Real!!!

Lesson #4: Put Myself First

I have also learned that it is okay to put myself first. As mothers, we are so used to putting our children’s needs before our own, but sometimes we need to take a step back and focus on ourselves.

It is important to nurture our own mental and physical health, so that we can be the best possible version of ourselves for our children.

Some of the best practices I have are during my morning routine. It includes prayer, meditation, reading a scripture, affirmations, taking a look at my goals to remind myself why I am doing what I do every single day! This helps me to stay focused on what is important, and it also allows me to release any negative energy that I may be holding onto.

Lesson #5: Unconditional Love

Lastly, I have learned that the most important thing in life is love. Unconditional love. The kind of love that accepts people for who they are, flaws and all. The kind of love that forgives, even when it is not easy to do so.

This is the kind of love that I want to give my children. I want them to know that no matter what they do in life, they will always have my unconditional love and support.
