Who is 𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝙾𝚛𝚒𝚐𝚒𝚗𝚊𝚕 𝙷𝚘𝚝 𝙼𝚎𝚜𝚜 𝙼𝚊𝚖𝚊?
She is you. She is the badass mom friend you never knew you needed. And she, is your new best advocate for all-things-life.
Likely, you will never find another like her.
And just like y o u, she is still figuring herself out too. She continues to learn, understand, better herself, grow. Of course, while simultaneously lookin’ like a hot mama and glowing. . . Just like y o u. *Duh*
Pro mama tip: Be the woman you have always dreamt of being. Being a wifey and mama does not mean that you have to stop being y o u. Being you does not make you selfish, it actually makes you a better wifey and mama. Because, being the best version of yourself allows for you to be the best version of yourself for others.
Just like that, just when I had felt and wholeheartedly believed that I had found myself, just when I had felt that I was able to fit into the box that I was so fixated on creating and carefully crafting for myself, I turned the corner, and surprised myself all over again.
Around that same corner stood myself. A cooler, “radder” (likely the latter is a totally made up word), more badass and beautiful version of myself.
Mamas, our precious fine china dinnerware set is made for boxes, WE ARE NOT.
So mamas, I will be blunt, I am not your conventional mama. I don’t conform. I don’t necessarily “do” rules. You certainly cannot fit me into a square, and likely, you will soon realize that I have completely taken control of defining my [own] version of motherhood, simply, one day at a time.
Define motherhood, do not let it define you.
I am an Air Force wife, yes. Though I don’t exclusively define myself as one, nor live my life as your typical “AF wifey.” I am a mama, yes. Though I don’t exclusively define myself as one, nor live my life as your typical “mama.”
I AM AN AIR FORCE WIFE. I AM A MOM. I AM ME. THIS IS ALYSSA. MEET 𝚃𝙷𝙴 𝙾𝚁𝙸𝙶𝙸𝙽𝙰𝙻 𝙷𝙾𝚃 𝙼𝙴𝚂𝚂 𝙼𝙰𝙼𝙰.
Mama, if you can fill your own damn glass and continuously keep it overflowing, it will continue [without end] to overflow and fill the glasses of those around you. Remember that.
Now that you know me, who are y o u mama?
