What if you were able to go back in time and give advice to your younger self?

#DearMe Campaign for International Women's Day inspired me to write a letter to myself. Not to my younger version in the past, but to myself in the present. 

Bunch of advices I could give myself  on daily basis.

* Do what you like to do. Do what really makes you feel happy.

* Every time you are unsure about something ask yourself: ‘’Do I really want to do it?’’

* Be honest with yourself.  Know your needs and expectations, your preferences and dreams.

* Aspire to live with harmony with yourself.

* Fulfil your plans and dreams.

* Express yourself through music, dance , art , fashion , writing and everything you do.

* Search of company of people who inspires you, who supports your creative fervour and enthusiasm.
* Search of company of people with whom you feel good and who accept you.

* Let it go of people with whom you feel less then yourself.

* Evolve. Try different things. Follow your interest. Listen to your heart.

* Respect yourself and learn how to say ‘’NO’’.
If you want something - ask for it.
If you don’t want it – say it.

* Know your value and don’t let someone opinion influence your self esteem.

* If you like something – say it.
If you don’t like something – say it too, and don’t feel bad about it.

* Don’t try to be perfect. Let yourself to make mistakes. Because of them, you can learn something new about yourself.
More mistakes = patience, forbearance and kindness for yourself and others.

* Live at your own pace!

* Don’t try to change yourself for others.

* Be your own best friend. Be kind to yourself.

* Listen to your body. Let it rest when is tired.

* Treat yourself well. Invest in your good mood. Go to beautician or for massage.

* Have time just for yourself. Sit down on the couch with nice cup of tea and ask yourself:  How do you feel today? Can I do something at this moment for myself?

Being a mom

Being a mom feels like that ;)
But seriously, how it is to be a mom?

Sometimes I hate it, and I sigh to how my life was before, and then things get easier and I kind of enjoy changing dirty nappies several times a day and sooth my baby for hours during the night....
Who am I kidding??!! My life is over! Big time! And probably I'll never have so much free time I used to have before.
But sometimes I try to imagine how my life would look like without Zoe and it seems so predictable, so BORING! With her I never can be sure if I'll survive till the next day without going crazy! ;) Life became so unpredictable, so dangerous with such a huge amount of caffeine in my veins and constant lack of proper sleep.
 Being a mom is a wonder.
I am like: "how the hell I can still function?"

Being a mom is a challenge.
I think I can't do any more , I'm exhausted and I want to jump out of the window or throw myself under a bus ,and then my baby pushes me even more, so I need to suck…

6 weeks postpartum - the real story

After leaving the hospital the third nipple ( hemorrhoid)  was my biggest concern, but then I saw it! And I had to google straight away "how vagina looks like" ,because I was puzzled.
I said puzzled? Sorry! I was terrified! And I haven't looked there for another two weeks!
Then I finally got the courage to check the situation again, but unfortunately nothing has changed! WTF! I've been doing Kegel exercise since the second day after birth!
 I got 3 stitches and I thought I will be pretty tight down there ,but it turns out that giant meteorite left giant destruction! Sex is out of the picture for a while!

Baby blues? Well...guess.
Hemorrhoids , gaping hole, marathon feeding, sore nipples, general exhaustion... You name it!
 I cried, I was tired, I was angry, frustrated, depressed, but then I sucked it up and repeated like a mantra : THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST BABY!!!

And here I am, 6 weeks and 2 days after Zoe has been born, asking my husband if he would consider anot…

Breastfeeding sucks! Things that nobody will tell you until you experience it!

Our baby girl aka Milk Vampire is one month and one day old today , and her mama (me) turned into a walking vending machine!
After another 6 hours ( on and off ) marathon feeding I take a big breath and I sigh "thank God is finally over", when she suddenly opens her big eyes in which I see milk madness!  I can't imagine how there is anything left in my boobs for her to eat! But  I know, if I won't feed her in that very moment she will scream like a mad man! Or mad baby - to be more specific.
On a day like today I wish I could put her back into my womb!  It's emotionally and physically draining, and I'm asking myself why I'm still doing it?  Honestly I don't know.
She is natural. She can latch so easily and maybe that's what keep me going?  Our little cobra :) She will shake her little head right and left in a short distance from my breast just to attack her prey ( my nipple ) by surprise.
If you're curious how strong that baby …
