As time goes on and I feel more comfortable with this mum gig and I’m honestly able to appreciate so many more things in life now, that I once would’ve dismissed or grizzled about. I guess it’s about being able to see the silver lining in things or the best in people.

I also find it so much easier to choose my battles in life. Some things just aren’t worth the energy worrying or arguing over when there’s another little human depending on you.

If I could turn back time, I’d sit my younger self down and explain that the things I think are a big deal, really aren’t. I’d explain how many wonderful things I had in my life and that I shouldn’t take any of it for granted.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

  1. That balance of knowing when to get excited and in the battle versus letting life flow is a difficult thing. I’m the mother of four and I still frequently get it wrong. But with God’s guidance I am getting better.
