You're Still Here

So, you feel like the old you is gone? Or that she’s a distant memory? Perhaps you feel like you’re lost in the fog of sleepless nights, of nappy changes, sterilising and washing? Perhaps you’re struggling to remember what made you YOU; the woman you were before? Or that you’re losing the battle? Well, let me tell you why you’re not lost…

Yes, there will be days when you feel lost in domesticity or days when you feel as though you’ve done everything for everyone and nothing for yourself but let me tell you this;  you’re a warrior! Childbirth? You survived it! Sleepless nights? Pah, you’re still standing! You have utterly devoted yourself to this tiny little human; you care for her, protect her, nourish her and love her and you think you’re losing the battle? No chance! You’ve been presented with your greatest ever challenge and hey, you stepped up. And you will be victorious! So listen up, you’re not lost, you’re finding yourself! Think the old you is gone? Then make way for the new one because girl, you’re a goddess.


And you’ve got this.

  6. This was just the tonic for me this evening! Mat leave is up next month, I'm self employed with a very shaky view of what I shall be doing for work once it is up and have been feeling quite lost and unimpressed with my abilities. This has helped so much, thank you. #HoneybeeLinky is on tomorrow, please come and join again lovely! xxx

  7. Oh gosh, you got me just at the moment I needed this. I have a post in my drafts that I'm hesitating on pressing publish, all about losing myself in motherhood. We all need a boost in our motherhood journey - there are so many stages we go through and it's never a walk in the park. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  12. After having an epically shit week, this post was the tonic I needed to survive the last part of the week. Roll on the weekend and attempting to spend some much needed time on myself and my marriage! I'm feeling utterly at sea, completely lost and reading this has made me get myself together and book a night out with my husband. Making myself and my marriage a priority. Thanks to all those mummy bloggers out there who have helped me feel a little less lonely and lost #sharingthebloglove

  13. Oh I love this! Very true, it’s all so hard some days, but if we get to the end of the day and we’re all still alive then I guess we’ve got it! And I quite like the new mummy me anyway. #SharingtheBlogLove x
