I feel like the biggest thing for me was learning to love this journey as it is. As humans, one thing we tend to do is spend a lot of time thinking about what things could have been like. How much easier things could've been if _____. And it's ok to be frustrated, but hanging out in those thoughts does absolutely NOTHING for you. For me, a major moment was making the decision to be a single mom. I spent so much time being frustrated about how much harder things are now. It got to the point where even a minor inconvenience would send me down that spiral of frustration. Then I noticed how much I was holding myself back from things that could be fun. I then tried to change my thinking to "how can I make this work? How can I make this enjoyable?" What's crazy is that from that small shift, it then made me appreciate the moments alone with Bella. Instead of thinking about how her father wasn't there for it, I cherished the moment as it was. It made me start thinking of ways we can have as much fun together as possible. When you shift your thoughts about a situation, it allows you to open up, be creative and find ways for it to work for you. It's not easy, but it's so worth it.
