It’s valentine’s week and we decided to celebrate the Love week with the love of our lives, our kids. Love, changes with time, it grows with the different phases of life. How do our lil ones fill our lives with love each day; how every day has a different experience when we are around them,….So in this week of Love, we asked a few Mommies, What is Love for you after Motherhood?
There is a saying that ‘Motherhood: All love begins and ends there’. And Namrata Sadhvani from Namratabs agrees.
Motherhood profoundly affects how we feel about this emotion called ‘love’. Personally, my understanding of love deepened tremendously when it was time to parent.
It was after I became a mother that I realized what selfless love actually meant, as it felt like my heart was walking around outside my body in the form of my two little kids. It has been 8 years now, but still, the feeling of immense, fierce love towards my kids is as strong as it ever when they were little babies. I don’t think it will ever reduce!
Being a mother has helped me understand the concept of self-love. I have learnt to love myself a lot more, take care of myself and be the kind of person I always wanted to be – not just because I want to live a longer and healthier life with my kids but also because I want to set the right example for them.
Motherhood truly teachers us the best lesson on love, compassion, joy and empathy and I, for one, couldn’t be more grateful for that!
I never knew my heart could hold so much love until I had two more hearts beating inside me. Being a mother I have seen a side of me I never knew existed. I became more patient and calmer after having my two little humans, a side of me, my family had never seen before. Motherhood has changed me as a person and the love I feel inside me after having two kids is unmatched. Thinking about my kids before I think about anything else, doing things for them I would never do for anyone else, my life is just revolving around them. And why not, the love, hugs and kisses I get in return pay up for all that I do as a mother.
