6 Months into Motherhood...

What changes when you have a baby?

* Your life
* Your thoughts
* Your priorities
* What you value
* Your view of yourself
* What you are attached to
* Your outlook of the world
* What you are detached from
* Your plans for the future, for life
* A renewed zest for all relationships
* You have a new identity - As N's mommy
* A new lens with which you look at your past
* Awareness that your most precious asset is Time
* Understanding of the significance of food & sleep
* What it means to be controlled; & to lose complete control
* How your world suddenly revolves around just one little being
* Better comprehension of the differences between man & woman
* Wonder and Amazement at how much you are really capable of
* Gratitude and a new found respect for your parents (& for that matter any parents!)
* How time simply zooms by & about how clueless you are of the world around you – from the tsunamis, to the scams, to the movies, to the seasons…………
* And last but not the least, Realization of what all you took for granted all through life!!!

In a nutshell, just about everything.

That’s why it’s probably said that you have a second life when you have a baby – You learn, grow and evolve along with your baby! And sometimes wonder if it’s really the same YOU!!!

  2. So well said! And so aesthetically said. I love the increasing number of characters in each point creating the slope effect. It is a bit symbolic of the cascade of emotions and thoughts that a baby brings along with them..
