I remember when I was pregnant for the first time, everyone would say, “Being a mom is so hard, but so worth it.” Do you know what that kind of advice does for a mother-to-be? I’ll be bold here and say it does nothing. The word “hard” is thrown around like confetti when it comes […]
In the end people remember less about things that you think are weird about yourself, or what you wore, or how much you weigh. Instead they remember how you made them feel.
