As baby Landon makes his way into the two month period, I find myself reflecting on things that all of a sudden are capsuled away into a past time vs. what's next?
Because a baby takes up pretty much...your entire life, I've come to realize that many of the things I once knew as casualties- like shopping, waking up at 12pm, taking long baths, etc., are now in fact small moments I look forward to cramming in between feedings & naps.
There's a lot of other things I miss, many of which I won't ever get back but in contrary, many of which I'm glad are gone. Being young & being a mom is tough- the outside world has a lot to say and very little to offer. Everything is in fact what you make of it: strong emphasis on the you. Whether it be a cherished memory or setting out new goals, you are the master of your own fate, both past influences & present. The scary part of it all is where do you start? Where are you going? And how do you get there? But fear is what fuels our strengths - at least for me it does.
Although I find myself frequently reminiscing, I'm excited to see where my mind wanders to in the years ahead and the new memories waiting to be made in the moments to come.
