From Big Sister to Mama
Since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a strong desire to be a mother. My favorite toy as a child was baby dolls, and I as I grew older I always loved kids and couldn’t wait to have my own someday. I had a younger brother who was born when I was 8, and a younger sister who was born when I was 13, so I gained a great deal of experience taking care of babies and children. Despite all of this, I was still very opposed to the idea of having children at a young age. My own mother had been a teen mom and I always attributed this to why things didn’t work out between her and my father and the poor choices they made that shaped my early childhood. When I was 17 though, I met an amazing person who changed my life completely. Over the next year I felt real love for the first time♥️, grew substantially as a person🧘🏼♀️, and discovered faith🙌🏻. I learned to let go… let go of the past, let go of your worries for the future, let go of the person you think you should be and just live every moment in the present, always being true to yourself. Around this time I knew I wanted a child. I had been praying for months for some direction in life, unsure of where to go from the point I was at. I had yet to discover my passions at this point in my life. I found out I was pregnant in August of 2017 and was ecstatic! Never once did I waver in my decision to have a child. Instead I took this time to research everything from vaccines to breastfeeding in order to ensure I could make the best decision for my son’s health and well-being. I quickly discovered that natural choices would almost always be safer for my son👶🏻, better for the world as a whole🌍, and benefit my family’s overall health🌿! Since learning all of this I have become very passionate about natural health and love helping others learn the benefits of living more naturally! If I had never decided to follow my intuition and have a child at a young age I’m not sure if I would have ever discovered the person I have become. Always follow your heart and don’t let the standards and expectations society and others impose on you hold you back! Everyone’s path is different!
