For years I was content doing the majority of EVERYTHING. My changing moment came in the spring of 2009. After years of insisting I was ok, I had to face the realization my body just couldn't keep up. I discovered I was severely anemic and all of my vitamins and minerals were nearly depleted from 4 pregnancies in 5 years. It was at that moment I realized I needed to change and make my physical and mental health a priority! If you don't take care of yourself, no one else can either.
Along my journey I discovered part of being a good wife and mother is realizing I don't have to do everything. Taking time out of your day to be aware~act~and reflect~ allows you to center yourself and recharge your batteries. For so long, I viewed this as a sign of weakness. After my medical emergency, I began taking small steps to carve out little pockets of time to relax.
Through the SheSpeaks Blogger Society, I was introduced to Cerra!
