Some would probably say this is just too much for a debut post on my new blog. But, I think it’s important to be relatable and honest. I pledge to write about whatever is on my mind.
So here we are.
I have a one year old little boy, T, that is my entire life. I enjoy being a mom. It’s my absolute favorite title. But, I also have many other titles that are also important to me; Girlfriend, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Titi, Employee. (There’s one missing..we’ll talk about that a little later)
If I am being honest with myself, I’m having a hard time finding the balance between all of those titles. I constantly feel as if taking time to be all of those other things takes time away from my favorite, mom. I feel my anxiety surging anytime someone suggests doing something with Nesha the person, and not necessarily Nesha the mom.
And enters that missing title…
See, I was a person with an identity of her own prior to this bundle of joy ever existed. It’s hard to remember Pre-T Nesha. Thankfully, I have a wonderful support system that reminds me that it’s okay to go and do things sans baby. That it’s okay not to be the perfect Pinterest mom. That it’s okay to need a break.
We live in a snippet society. A society where we know so much and so little about a person. This is because we post that 1 perfect picture of that 1 perfect moment but, we never talk about the 60 attempts it took to get that perfect moment.
So this is the part of motherhood we don’t find on Pinterest. The part where anxiety and sometimes depression lives. The part where you question are you strong enough to be not only a mom but, a happy mom? This blog will show those perfect moments but, you’ll also see the messiness of it all.
If you made it this far then, I’m sure you’ll be back.
Til next time,
