Photographing your moments in San Francisco, California

As I celebrate my 32nd birthday, I find myself in a reflective mood. This milestone marks not just the passing of another year but also a profound transformation in my life. Today, I want to share with you how this year has been unlike any other, filled with growth, self-discovery, and the unexpected joys of motherhood.

Becoming a mother has been the defining experience of the past year. My little girl is about to turn one, and this journey into parenthood has been both unique and challenging in its own way. It’s an adventure that reshapes not only your daily routines but also your perspective on life itself.

One of the remarkable things about motherhood is how it varies from person to person. We all make choices that are deeply personal and reflective of our circumstances and aspirations. Personally, I chose to embrace motherhood later in life because I wanted to relish the freedom to explore, travel, and pursue my passions before taking on the responsibilities of raising a child. Looking back, I am grateful for this choice, as it allowed me to grow in ways I couldn’t have anticipated.

The arrival of a child changes everything. It not only impacts your life but also the dynamics of your relationship with your partner. This year has taught me the vital importance of self-care. Neglecting our own well-being can leave us with little to give to our loved ones, and I’ve experienced this firsthand.

In the past, my partner and I were constantly together, and our togetherness felt effortless. Now, with our daughter in the picture, we’ve learned to cherish and prioritize moments spent as a couple. It’s about quality rather than quantity, and it has brought a new depth to our relationship.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to appreciate birthdays in a new light. In my twenties, these milestones often left me feeling discontented, as I grappled with uncertainty and unhappiness. However, through personal growth, mindset shifts, and dedicated self-improvement, I’ve found a deeper sense of contentment and acceptance of where I am.

This year, as I turn 32, I might not be feeling my best due to a recent few days of illness. Nevertheless, I’m counting my blessings and savoring the meaningful aspects of my life. It’s a reminder that birthdays can carry different significance at various life stages, and I am determined to make the most of this day, even if it doesn’t align with the spa day I once envisioned (as I need to rest up since I am still recovering).

In my quest for self-care and personal development, I’ve discovered the value of a to-do list app. (ME+) This simple tool has been a game-changer, helping me maintain balance and prioritize self-care in my daily life. It includes seemingly small tasks like taking a shower, staying hydrated, and even setting aside a moment for makeup – all of which I once overlooked but now recognize as crucial for my overall well-being.

In conclusion, as I look back on the past year, I can’t help but feel a sense of contentment and gratitude for where life has taken me. I am thankful for the people who have supported me throughout this journey and for the new friendships that have blossomed along the way. Life has a remarkable way of evolving, and I’ve learned to not only accept change but also embrace it wholeheartedly. As I reflect on my 32nd birthday and the year it represents, I am reminded that it’s the little things, personal growth, and the unexpected joys of life that truly enrich our journey. Here’s to another year of transformation and embracing the beauty of the unknown! 🎂
