30 day post {Day 18}

Day 18 - a picture of your biggest insecurity.
When I first here the word insecurity, I think of something physical. Like, my legs are so white and usually have bruises on them that I hate showing them. Or how I am insecure that I STILL breakout at the age of 26 and it seems like no matter what I do, make up just won't cover it up. Or how my hair is always so frizzy and I still can't seem to figure out how to get those baby hairs framing my face to keep the hair color in that I dye it. Or how none of my pre pregnancy clothes fit the same on  my now post pregnancy body.

Then I realize that they are just small insecurities that I really don't let get to me for more than 5 minutes. The real insecurity that I have that I deal with the most is being a MOM. I feel there is so much responsibility in raising a little one. Not only the physical aspect of making sure they are clean, fed and watched with a careful eye, but also how to raise them with morals and to love God with all they have. Sometimes I am so nervous that how I am as a parent will directly effect what the future will hold for her and how I will play a part in the person she will become.

What I really need to be doing is trusting that God will give me the tools and confidence that I need to be the parent He needs me to be for her. I need to let the insecurity go and do my best to love and nurture her the best way I know how. Oh ya, and give her tons and tons of kisses and cuddles.

I totally understand what you mean! My mom always told me that as long as I'm doing everything with love, I'm probably doing it right :)

i couldnt agree more. In fact, I was shopping today for some post pregnancy clothes and spent all of about 5 minutes overwhelmed by the form of my new body, but that feeling fades away. The deep and true insecurity in my heart that i need to work through is "do i have what it takes to love and care for this sweet new life the way she needs?" its a big thing, but so rewarding and fulfilling.

Love Love LOVE the picture of you and Chloe!

I never knew some of this. Even though you are my sister and I should. It's great learning about you still = D

Love you!

I feel the same way! It's such a huge responsibility to raise a child, because as a Christian, I want to do everything I can to raise them up "in the way they should go". . .
And I can totally relate to the white legs thing. Ugh.

Denise said...

I completely know where you are coming from! I feel the exact same way! I just pray and hope that I am rasing my little Ezri the way she needs me to! But I know with God guiding me I know she will turn out as awesome as i hope she will be!

BTW You are such an AMAZING MOM!!!!

Olivia Grace said...

I totally know what you mean! It's so hard as mothers to have these feelings but also know that we have to be strong for our daughters. Love your sweet blog, your daughter is precious!
