Well I've come to the end of my "typical" American maternity leave. And you know what? I feel surprisingly great. At this time with my first baby, I was dreading my return to work, doing my best to physically and emotionally keep my head above water. This time around I am THRILLED to be making plans for work and feel mostly great. There are, of course, exceptionally bad moments and days.
I think, though, that I've rebounded so much better because I allowed my self to rest and asked for help (and accepted it even though that was REALLY HARD TO DO). It feels like we've consciously transitioned as a family and we are all ready to head into this next chapter together.
Yoga Teacher. Thinker of things.
Sometimes I just need to empty the contents of my brain into words.
