Becoming a mother can be overwhelming. You’re blessed with a life other than your own to protect, nurture and flourish. Subconsciously you can slip into the routine that naturally comes along with motherhood, focusing solely on your children and forgetting about your own needs. That is what happened to me. I live for my children. I would do everything in my power to protect them, but for a period of my own parenting journey I forgot who I was, and I’m not talking baby brain.
