5 Ways Motherhood Changed My Life for the Better
I never fully understood what people meant when they said that their children made them better people until I had toddler boss. Three years ago, I can accurately say that everything about my life BB (Before Baby) changed after I gave birth. Sure, I read books (lots of them) and sought advice from friends (most of whom kept it real), but nothing could have prepared me for what was to come.
While this list will never be complete, here are five beautiful ways that motherhood has changed my life for the better:
2. I’m a better planner and organizer. Although I used to be a complete “go with the flow” type, these days, I need a plan and an organizational system in place. I don’t have to follow everything to a “T,” but I find that our whole household runs and looks better when Mommy has it together (or at least gives the appearance that she does).
3. I’m more motivated than ever. I started BambiniWare while I was on maternity leave. At the time, I had no idea at the time that it would grow into what it’s become. It was my daughter, and the example that I wanted to set for her, that motivated me to go for it. I'm a better person because of who she is and who she inspires me to be. Every morning, she pushes me to make each day better than the last.
