While I was pregnant I constantly focused on myself. My only commitment was to my internal peace and creating the best environment for my daughter to grow. Since having her, I’ve struggled with keeping that same peace. I’ve let people and situations into my life that I wouldn’t have while I was pregnant. But here’s the thing: I want to let them in.
I don’t want life to harden me like it has so many of the “adults” around me. So the first Monday Mantra of 2020 is:
I will not let life harden me or define me.
