‘Bout to get real sentimental right now people! But with good reason because a new member of my family has been welcomed into the world today which is why I want to share something very close to my heart with all of you. It’ll most likely come up again.

For those that know me, know just how much I’ve desired this since I was a little girl. For those who don’t know me, you’re about to find out, lol. I’ve wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember. Barbie dolls never made it on my radar. Babies did.

My dream has been and forever will be to have my own family one day. If it were up to me, I would’ve had it years ago but you know, I gotta do things the right way. I’ve had a lot of people throughout my life make fun of that dream and down play it while saying, “Oh, that will change once you have your first.”

Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams die, Life is a broken-winged bird, That cannot fly.

Langston Hughes

Motherhood is most likely the hardest job on the planet and that’s putting it lightly. I’m not a naive person that assumes having a child is all glamour and perfect. But my yearning to create a life of my own may not compare to some of those people who do have kids. It’s as simple as this; If anybody asks me what I want to be when I grow up and if I were to give them my honest answer, it would be to be a mom.

Your wanting to instill some kind of fear and doubt within me will never change that desire. No matter how many tantrums I witness from other people’s children, scary stories that happened when they gave birth, or struggles they go through every day with them. My life will truly begin the moment I find out I’m pregnant.

Don’t ever let anyone belittle your dreams

For all my mama’s out there, especially to the ones who have their miracle baby, there’s just something about your stories that fill me with so much happiness. You’re all strong, beautiful, empowered women that have created life. You are the definition of extraordinary.

Whether it it be to start a family or something else entirely, don’t ever let anyone belittle your dreams or make you feel doubt and fear towards them. They’re yours and when you’re finally given what you’ve longed for, nothing else matters.
