I am a 29-year-old, work-from-home (and everything in-between) mother to one beautiful and vivacious daughter. It is now June and Gemini season, and I have another five days to enjoy my glorious 20s. That’s right. I am turning 30 people! You’d imagined I would say something like, “Ah, to be 20 again…,” or “The 20s were the best years of my life.”… and they really were! But, I am so looking forward to being in my 30s! Tales from my early 20s are for another post, but the highlight of that era was when I had turned 25 and learned that I was pregnant with my daughter, Scout. You see, motherhood kind of came unexpectedly for me. But somehow, motherhood instincts kicked in and I just felt ready. I also had this intuition that I’d have a girl. Fast-forward to four years later, I am now a mother to a beautiful 3.5-year-old daughter!
Life works in so many mysterious ways and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Being a mother has been the proudest, most fulfilling role I’ve ever had to play my entire life. It gave me incredible instinctive qualities and strengthened the bond I have with my own mother whom I’m so grateful for.
But how does one find independence as a Mother?
