All of us at some point, have heard in our lives that, when someone else’s happiness becomes your happiness that is love. I have found that the unconditional love in it’s purest form is MOTHERHOOD. Yes it’s challenging. Somedays you feel like ripping your hair out of your skull (and no I’m not exaggerating). It can be super challenging and difficult to say the least. Just yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine about what motherhood was like for me first time around. I showed her a picture of the spot, right next to the lake, where I used to sit and just look into nothingness. The isolation and the numbness was too real. Without going into too much detail, I had wayyy too much too deal with than to just adjust as a new mother, and since I had a really complicated and traumatic birthing experience my body was unable to recover from it. At that point I was not just emotionally and mentally drained, but my body had given up on me too. The only thing that’d truly bring peace to me was looking at my precious M. It gave me so much strength and somehow I found my way and myself as the time passed. Slowly but surely everything phased out. In today’s post I didn’t want to share a beauty product or anything like that, but a message and a reminder. Though it’s tough but this phase will pass out before you know it. The days might be long, but the years are very short. I learned that there will be days where I’ll be a super mom, but there’ll also be days where I’ll be just an exhausted overwhelmed crazy mom. And that’s okay! So many of you always compliment me on what a supermom I am. I wanted to share the moments where I felt like anything but a supermom. And yes I portrayed that I was doing just fine, because that’s what us moms do the best. I think it’s about time we change it. Motherhood is different for everone & every child is different too. I had two completely different experiences with both my girls. We all are SuperMoms, we might have some off days, but on those days we just gotta remind ourselves a bad day doesn’t make you a bad mom 💕 Hope these pictures of my S and this reminder bring some peace in your life and smile on your face ❤️ Lots of Love, Z 💕

I remember hearing this when I was listening to Girl, Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis [which is how I always prefer to wash my dishes now, by the way]. I loved so much about the book, but the theme I needed most when I read it was this. YOU are in control of YOUR life. YOU, and only YOU, can make YOU happy. So I was reminded I can DECIDE to be happy. [And I somehow took this better from Rachel than my own mother.] It’s a choice...I have choices, not just reactions. I have control of my life. Things took place in my life that made me feel out of control, but I realized I was just reacting, letting myself fall victim to my circumstances, and definitely only surviving- not conquering. Now I better understand that although I may not have control over what happens to me, I do have control over how I respond. What has helped me is to start with small things I can control: -I can choose to be grateful -I can control my thoughts -I can eat healthier -I can exercise You get the idea 🙂 Here’s to taking back YOUR life. 👊🏼 . . . . . #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #mrsrachelhollis #girlwashyourface❤️ #motivationformamas #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #motivationalquotes

My favorite little boy 😍 I still find myself wondering how I got so lucky to call you “my son”. You are full or happiness and your love for me is pure. You teach me new things everyday... I never knew how hard “motherhood” was until I had you, but you sure make it a fun ride!! 😘 you are amazing. #tristiankaiden

Just enjoying the sunshine with my people. We’re about to carve pumpkins and I’m going to whip up some homemade enchilada sauce. What are you up to this Sunday? My sweater is from @shoppinkblush and it’s perfect for momming and cozy Fall days 🍂 #prettyinpinkblush #theafdemfarmhouse #pnwmom

It’s important that we share our experiences with others. Your story will heal you and it will heal others. When you tell your story you heal yourself and you give others permission to acknowledge their own story!! #motherhoodrising #boymom #momof3 #momlife #misfitness #mother #lover #daughter #sister #friend #warrior #trailblazer #dreamer #fitfam #healthyjourney #selflove #selfcare #healing #trauma #mindfulness

How can I let today go by without posting a little Rosie. I've spent most of the day looking back at pictures of her when she was days old. I bloody hope the next six months go at a snail's pace so I can remember every moment. I keep thinking I haven't got enough pictures or memories which is silly really because I have over 10,000 pictures of her 😂 . . . . . . . . #26weeks #6monthsold #1week #babygirl #momentsofmine #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhood #rosieposiepuddingandpie #rosiegirl #mumswithcameras #magicofchildhood #mumswithcameras #motherhoodrising #parentingblogger #letthembelittle #honestparenting #momentsinmotherhood #monochrome #joyinthejourney #discoverunder5k  #cheekygrin #tinybaby #memories #sleeptraining #funny #babydevelopment #adorable #innocence

Good morning, Monday! And a wave of excitement for the two baby girls born over the weekend and last week that will be coming through the studio this week & next.

Headed out in a bit for my last session for the week and all I can say is, holy freaking cow Boise!...I usually mark this as (usually!) the best week in October, but this year was out of control perfect...I don't think my computer can handle all the adorable families and gorgeous sunsets we've seen. Stay tuned for more of this sweet fam! 😘🍁

#repost @zenandaplaypen ・・・ I had to share this with everyone this morning courtesy of @om.with.noms . It’s easy to become frustrated when your little one (or ones!) want to be carried all day, want your undivided attention and you’ve got dinner to cook, a long to do list and clothes to wash 🥗 . But this reminded me; our children don’t understand the ‘responsibilities’ of the world yet, or that there’s a ‘problem’ with dirty dishes. They don’t mind if you’re wearing your best clothes or if you washed your hair 💁🏼‍♀️ (even when it REALLY needs a wash 🤫) . The things that they care about and that bring them joy and make memories are; TIME with you, CONNECTION with you, Laughter, understanding, friendship, respect and love. . I know I know... someone out there is thinking “but we still have to get those things done!” - which is true, but do we NEED to do them as quickly and as well as we ask ourselves to? Probably not. Today and this week I will be reminding myself that How quickly I get things done, and if a few things drop off the list, it really doesn’t matter. .

I beat the Sun this morning 🌞 so naturally I meditated, did some light movement, journaled, started the sketch for my painting, and took pictures of clothes I’m selling on @poshmark . If you wanna check out my closet my username on there is lucydean64. —————- I have been reflecting on the past year. Isla Rose altered my life in the most intense but necessary way and I could not be more grateful for her presence. However, by no means am I implying that I have conquered this uncharted territory. My strength has been tested and my sanity questioned numerous times. I truly underestimated the intense emotional work becoming a mother would be. All of my past traumas, insecurities, and woes have been preyed upon by my ego in those early, sleep deprived hours of motherhood. Isla made me painfully aware of how powerful love is and with that energy I have awakened my Soul, Spirit, Essence etc. by healing the parts of my Self that I have neglected for so many years prior. Twelve hours of labor made me feel so connected to the Divine that for the first time in my life I KNEW I had infinite potential to weave my Soul’s desires into reality.🕸🕷 —— #motherhoodrising #grandrising #yogawitch #dreamweaver #spider #lawofattraction #headstand #perspective

If you were to take only one herb in the postpartum time, let it be dashamula! ♥️ The most important thing to do to heal properly after birth is to remove excess vata from the body. Most diseases come from a vata imbalance, so whether or not a new mama properly takes care of this imbalance will set the stage for the future of her health. ♥️ “Dashamula is a traditional Ayurvedic formula for removing excess vata from the system. It is a nourishing muscle tonic that strengthens the body (including the uterus!) and calms the nerves. The formula is very grounding and helps direct the flow of vata energy in the body downward. Dashamula literally means "ten roots" referring to the traditional ingredients of the formula. Five of the plants are large trees and many of the roots are difficult to obtain sustainably. When necessary, other parts of the plants are used as effective substitutes to help ensure the protection of the species for future generations.” — Banyan Botanicals ♥️ I recommend getting your Dashamula from Banyan Botanicals because they are careful to only source organic and ethically harvested Dashamula components. If they aren’t able to get it with those standards, it will be temporarily out of stock. ♥️ RECIPE New Mama’s Dashamula Tea: (This recipe is extra strong for healing up new mamas, if you are not a new mama, you’d want to take a smaller dose of 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per serving) • on the stove, bring to a boil 2 cups of water + 2 tsp Dashamula powder • simmer uncovered until only 1/2 cup of liquid remains • optionally sweeten with maple syrup to taste (so good!) • drink 1/4 cup in the morning after a tall glass of warm water but otherwise on an empty stomach • refrigerate remaining 1/4 cup to reheat and drink last thing in the evening before going to bed at night • ideally drink in this way every day for the first 42 days after giving birth ♥️ Follow #ayurdoulalove for all my Ayurvedic postnatal tips, recipes, and advice! ♥️ ♥️ ♥️ #ayurdoula #ayurvedicpostpartumcare #postpartumdoula #newmama #postpartumrecovery #postpartumjourney #postpartumhealing #postpartum #postnatal #newmamahacks #motherhood #motherhoodrising #ayurveda #ayurvedamama #naturalmama

Fin has been gone at the in-laws cabin this weekend so it’s just been me and this cutie. Its been so fun to get some one-on-one time with my little Wats. I didn’t realize it’s been the first time I’ve gotten good quality alone time with him (besides the hospital). It’s been nice to be able to just sit and snuggle him, without having to worry about a toddler tornado destroying my house 😂. It’s also made me realize I need to be better at making sure I get alone time with each of my boys. It made me a little sad that Watson gets a little neglected when it comes to attention a lot of the time, because I’m always chasing his wild brother around. Luckily he is the most chill kid and I’m going to start trying to be better at it! . Mr Watts here is the sweetest little babe. Like ever. We are very spoiled to have such an easy baby. I think someone in heaven must’ve been thinking, “there life is going to be crazy right now, let’s send them a good one”. He literally does not cry, only complains every once and awhile. He’s earned the nickname slug cause he pretty much just hangs out all day plopped wherever, totally content. (And because when he tries to crawl he lays face down in the carpet & slowly scoots with his legs dragging his face and body😂😂). He also loves to cuddle & nurse. Plus he just turned 5 months!!! 😱 Crazy!! I love him so freaking much!!! 💙💙 .

It’s our last day with papa before he goes back to Aus until the beginning of December *tears*. We were going to spend this public holiday at the beach but of course it’s overcast 😅 So breakfast dates and then an indoor play centre it is. That way I can sit on my butt, let the kids run wild and then put them down for a 3 hours nap after lunch WINNING 🙌🏼😉 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommybloggers #mommylife #parentingblogger #pregnancyblog#momitforward #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunplugged #letthembelittle#mommyproblems #momswithcameras #nothingisordinary #motherhoodrising#uniteinmotherhood #candidchildhood #dailyparenting #mytinymoments #oureverydaymoments #childofig #uniteinmotherhood #momtogs #simplychildren #umh_kids #littleandbrave #makeportraits #kidsforreal #cameramama #dearphotographer #takemyheartdear #honestmotherhood #writeyouonmyheart

it’s been a tough few days with this little munchkin being sick. mostly because he prefers not to eat, is as clingy as a koala bear, and is sleeping quite poorly (so much so that he’s got his mamma sleeping on the floor next to his crib and holding his hand all freaking night long — otherwise, it’s complete mayhem). here’s to hoping that he gets better over the next few days! coz mamma also needs to get well. 🤞🏻 . . . . . . . . #habitandhome #instababy #instagrambabies #mamasboy #mamahood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #babiesofinstagram #babiesofig #babyoftheday #candidchildhood #instapost #ohheymama #motherhoodthroughinstagram #toddlerlife #toddlersofinstagram #litenluring #momswithcameras #vscodaily #17monthsold #hellofall #littlebookworm #babybookworm #readinglife #readingcorner
