Have you ever noticed how babies live unapologetically? They are fearless! As a mom that can be completely terrifying at times, but it’s also incredibly inspiring. Aria doesn’t care whose around she will shriek with laughter, or belt an agonizing scream whenever she feels like it.
It’s absolutely beautiful. To live your life so innovative and free must be effortless. To just be you and not care what others think is vital in a world that tries to sway us to live otherwise. Aria inspires me to be free. She motivates me to be the proud woman that I am.
I started loving myself harder once Aria came into my life. I started being mindful of what I say aloud. I’m mindful of my attitude. I’m aware of any negative energy that flows my way. I don’t want to project any negativity onto my child. That’s not to say I don’t slip up occasionally. I am human. The difference now is I try to live purposely for not only my peace of mind but my daughter’s also.
Let me tell you a secret, I was such a Debbie Downer.
I use to be so hard on myself. It was stressful being me because I would put an insane amount of pressure on myself to do this or that. If something weren’t accomplished I would bash myself. My husband (my boyfriend at the time) pointed it out to me. I didn’t even realize it because it was just how I lived.
I’m aware now more than ever how I live my life. I want my life to be pleasing unto the Lord and to be the wife and mother He’s called me to be. I can’t do that if I’m concerned with what others think. Aria inspires me to be unapologetically me by just being her little self. I watch her in amazement everyday.
How can someone who’s been here for such a short period of time have such an impact on my life? I hope she never loses her spunky, lively spirit. The ways my daughter inspires me are endless. I just didn’t know what was in store for me once I became a mom. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
By just being herself Aria has changed my outlook on life. I’m becoming a better me because of my sweet child. I hope you are able to see the beauty in just being yourself too.
