Lessons Learned From Motherhood

I didn’t consider myself to be a selfish person before I became a mother. In fact, I considered myself to be a caring, compassionate, and considerate person. While that may have been true, I have since learned that the person I was before knew little of what it meant to be selfless. From the moment I held that beautiful baby in my arms my thoughts and actions became consumed with what’s best for her.

I believe that we can have moments that bring about change instantaneously like the birth of a new child, but I also believe that not all change can happen at once because change is a continuous process.
