1. You understand the true meaning of life
Many mothers will admit – the moment their (first) child comes to this world, their life gets a bigger and more profound meaning than ever before. Knowing that a new human being – a new life – came to be after nine months of pregnancy.
2. You feel true, unconditional love
Whether you’re a mom-to-be, a first-time mom, already a mom and perhaps planning another: motherhood will most surly allow you to feel true, unconditional love for the first time once you’ve experienced the birth of your child.
3. For the first time in your life, someone is truly more important than you to yourself
After your pregnancy, everything changes – your priorities, your perspective on life, your need to be everything to someone who depends on you so significantly. The realization that this new life before you needs you to survive and to grow, makes this life truly more important than you to yourself.
4. You bring out the child in you
When everyday life and routines are completely in focus, we often forget to bring out the child in us, we tend to forget real happiness and joy in life, we forget how to kid around and have fun. When children come to our life, we remember all those little joys and start reliving our youth.
5. You see the value in sacrifice
The amount of unconditional love which is many times equal to the sacrifice put into everything we do is unable to be measured. For the first time in your life, you don’t see sacrifice as something difficult, because its not a question. Sacrifice is a pure act of love.
6. You find motivation in being a true idol to someone
During your pregnancy, you may have the chance to daydream a lot, imagining what this new life arriving to this world might mean to you. For the first time in your life, there will probably be a new, never before seen motivation coming from within you. This need to be the best version of yourself, the best example, the greatest light that you can be, to your new child – will most likely never end, from the day you become a mother.
7. You get to hear Happy Mother’s Day at least once a year!
Maybe sometimes you will feel as though you don’t get enough recognition, support, attention, love, care – but we all do truly love you, mothers. You make our lives complete, and you’re the deepest, most meaningful relationship we will ever have. Thank you for being there, every day of the year.
