Hey June! You've Come Along...

5:46 PM

It's the first day of June.

The first thought I had when I woke up this morning was how different my life is right now compared to my life was last year. I still was clueless that I was pregnant last year on the first day of June. I am undoubtedly astounded with all the changes that are unfolding right before my very eyes.

Motherhood has been quite a game changer for me and it has taught me to live in the moment. I can still remember when I gave birth to my daughter but the newborn smell is slowly fading in my memory. I worry about losing and forgetting memories. I worry about not living up to being a good mother. I feel like I have to document everything, every step, every smile, every grin, every grimace. I count the hours in between feedings. I plan on so many things and I catch myself losing more time worrying.

Time for sure isn't slowing down and the only inevitable thing is that Summer is teaching me how to slow down instead. Whenever she greets me with her endearing smile when she wakes up in the morning, I am reminded to soak up the moment in her presence and not worry about anything else. Take one day at a time, just enjoy the present and cherish the past.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I spent May adjusting to living without the hubs at home and establishing a new routine with the little one. I spent May acknowledging the things that make me happy. I basically lost track of focusing on my goals. I am not sure if I should maintain a list of goals yet again. Maybe I will free myself from any goal this month and focus on each day that comes. I don't think I should be hard on myself on my birth month anyway.

Let me know your thoughts about the verse I quoted above. I would love to read and exchange ideas with you my dear readers.
