One thing giving birth has taught me is that we control so little in life. As much as I would like to believe I control, really I don’t. I use to try to control too many details in my life. Prior to giving birth, I read about 10 books about natural child birth, so I could have my birth-plan go to plan. Guess what? Nothing went as planned. I have found most things don’t go as planned, yet somehow everything works out as it should. I laugh off so many life events now. Since having my child, I stress less about certain things and I adjust to change much better. I am adaptable with change, and I still work hard to be consistent with diet and exercise. I may control little, but I there are things I can manage. I think some powerful things motherhood has taught me is to expect the unexpected and to do everything with a positive attitude. Everyday life has a surprise in store, so it’s best to greet it with optimism.
