sometimes, when you’re a mom, you have parts of you that come alive that you never knew existed. sometimes, you have moments of yourself that surprise you. sometimes, when you are a mom, you have parts of your heart grow & love in ways you never knew possible and can hardly grasp how you had in yourself what you see. your heart & love is alive in new ways, you never knew were there. but also — when you’re a mom, you wonder what happened to some of the parts of you that just made you… you. today, i felt a little of the “old stacy” breathe. when i dove under a wave in crystal blue water. i felt so incredible to be in my little slice of the world. i felt like myself. my “old” self. and then i came out of the waves and dove straight into the “new” self (mom). it was a good feeling, a great feeling. they can come together. seems small – but it was big.
today i felt like the “old” me & the “new” me could be together & present…
it was a good day.
