Mom on the Rise: Signs You're Evolving Every Day

No one really prepares you for the discomfort of personal growth. The things you used to love no longer excite you. You stop saying "yes" just to be liked or doing things simply because others ask you to. Goodbye, people-pleasing. Hello, self-awareness and a newfound desire to pursue your passions. When I think of growth I think of a butterfly. How alone it may feel while being reshaped and refined in its cocoon. Transforming and growing until it's time to finally spread its wings. Today I encourage you to embrace the discomfort—it's a sign that you're growing into a more authentic and empowered version of yourself.

Here are some signs that you may just be evolving momma....

You embrace the imperfections.

Why do we feel like we should be "Perfect Patty" everywhere we go? We impose these unrealistic expectations on ourselves about what happiness should look like and honestly, it's exhausting. A good sign of growth is when you begin to let these notions go. You stop letting the world dictate how you should live your life. You learn to embrace both the good and the bad while working on yourself daily. I often remind myself that I am a child of God, and he calls me a masterpiece. Some days, I might not get it right—and that’s perfectly okay. This saying is simply a reminder that not only are you a good person but a great mom!

Self-awareness is a priority.

Understanding who you want to be and where you're headed is vital on this journey of motherhood. It's crucial to recognize when you need to take a break and recharge. When you're self-aware, you honor these needs instead of ignoring them. Rather than constantly pushing yourself, you're intentional about taking the time to acknowledge and process your feelings. On those overwhelming days, I like to set aside all of my plans and instead do the activities I enjoy. As moms, our job isn't easy, and without care, we can quickly burn out. True growth comes from being in tune with our bodies and understanding our needs. Remember, even Jesus took time to rest, and taking care of yourself allows you to be the best mom you can be.

You nurture meaningful relationships.

As I get older I realize how important it is to water those meaningful relationships. These connections not only provide us with love and support but gives us a sense of community. Investing time and energy into our relationships deepens bonds and increases our emotional well-being. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to catch up with loved ones and talk about everything under the sun. Just as a plant needs water and care to flourish, our relationships require attention and nurturing to grow and thrive. Prioritizing these connections not only enriches our lives but also reflects the love and care that God calls us to show one another, building a strong foundation for a fulfilling and balanced life rooted in faith.

You find value in you.

For the longest time, I believed that the things I had defined who I was. I would cater to everyone's needs but my own, thinking that being a people-pleaser was what made me a good person. I poured all my energy into making others happy, believing that this was the key to my own happiness and self-worth. Overtime, I started to feel drained and unfulfilled. I realized that in trying to be everything for everyone, I was losing myself. It was a tough lesson, but I learned that true happiness and self-worth come from within.

I realized that I was measuring my worth by the things I did, rather than celebrating who I already was. It took some deep soul-searching to see that my true value comes from within, not from external achievements or possessions. It's a reminder that we, as moms, are enough just as we are. Our worth isn’t tied to our to-do lists or the size of our paycheck, but to the love and care we bring into our homes and lives every day.

Let's start celebrating ourselves for who we are, because we are more than enough!

You chase fulfillment.

As I grow older, I've discovered that I need to understand the "why" behind everything I do. Without this clarity, it's challenging for me to complete any task. This shift has transformed how I approach daily life. It influences what I say yes to, the opportunities I embrace, and even the people I spend my time with. I've learned to be intentional about my choices, ensuring I don't waste time on things I dislike. Instead, I focus on what truly brings me joy.

Evolution is a beautiful journey, even if it feels uncomfortable at times. It's all part of the process, momma. Embrace it and trust that these changes are leading you to a more fulfilling life.
