It might sound a bit fuddy duddy so to speak, but me falling pregnant at the young age of 18 and having my LO at 19, I just felt like I was literally caught up in a massive whirlwind. The life that I had once known is now a life I can vaguely remember.
I had just left collage to go and work full time, I had and have always had family problems whilst at school, and it seemed like I was only just finding my feet when suddenly life decided to pull the carpet (and floor), from beneath me.
I have never once felt an ounce of regret from having my beautiful child, as I'm a big believer that things happen for a reason. And life has given me full living proof of that.
From where I am now to where I was nearly two years ago, I would never in my life of thought how far I would come to now, and how far I will keep going.
You see since becoming a mum it has absolutely turned my world upside down and around, and it seems whilst in that mad whirl wind I have found who I am.
I've proven to myself and others just how strong I can cope and handle any situation given to me.
I have grown up in myself, and I know how to manage responsibilities.
From two years ago I was a college drop out, and working at a fast food restaurant, to now being a full time young, healthy and happy mum, a supportive partner, a university student, a freelance writer and blogger, and not forgetting the jobs that come with being a mum! I.e. cook, cleaner, nurse, maid, no days off etc etc
I wouldn't change a thing in my life, even if I was ever offered a million pounds!
I've learnt a hell of a lot from becoming a mum, and I couldn't be happier with who I am. I think it's important that every mother and woman can come to a point like this in their life, and learn to find who they really are. Their not just a mum, or a wife, or a worker. They are worth a million times more, and they should feel proud of themselves, and embrace and enjoy finding the path to their own self love and happiness.
I wonder if anyone else feels the same as I do? Have you found your true self since becoming a mum?
