Here are 4 lessons that I have learned that really changed my life...
1) Take Responsibility: As a mother you are no longer only responsible for yourself. You have a child to be responsible for. You have to make sure that everything is on point and stay on top of things to make sure your child is okay. By no means is anyone asked to be perfect but this is your child so you must do everything you can to make sure they are well taken care of.
2) Change Your Attitude: Before Princess S. came into my life I had a bad attitude. I always thought that I did not have to please anyone so no one else mattered. I did not care if people wanted to be my friend. I just stayed in my own lane. I had a attitude of selfishness. However when Princess S. was born I decided to live life by the golden principle "treat others like you want to be treated". This has come a long way because I have raised a very respectful child.
3) Always Speak Proper English: Children copy everything and most of all they repeat everything they hear. Since I was a fluent slang speaker I had to change that fast. I did not want Princess S. going to school saying "Yo, come over here" to the other children. Just like I taught her, her ABC's I had to teach her the proper English language. She's still learning by the way.
4) Handle Situations In A Positive Manner: Have you ever had a bad moment? A moment when everything just went wrong? I can not even begin to count how many bad moments I have had. You just want to scream and go crazy. However with a child around you have to opt to handle things in a positive manner. You want to show them that if you stay calm things will get better much faster. This was hard for me but I learned to breathe in and out and let God handle it.
So many lessons learned but these are the ones that really changed the way I act and think. What are some lessons that you have learned as a mother that has changed your life?
