When I entered into the role of motherhood, I thought it was about complete sacrifice if I wanted to be a “good” mom. With that limiting belief, I ended losing myself and, in turn, affecting the relationships I cherished the most. I was lost in the definition of my new role and I didn’t know how to work on getting myself back. I didn’t know if she even existed anymore.
One of the ways I eased myself back into prioritizing myself again was rediscovering something that I used to really enjoy – something just for myself. And for me, that was art. I love crafting, creating, and self expression. And I really enjoy these paint by numbers kits from Target. It’s a no brainer, which is just what I need.
