Hello there and welcome back to my blog! Arianna is 7 months old and despite her age, she opened my eyes in so many ways and helped me learn some valuable life lessons just by observing her.
Before becoming a mum I thought I’m gonna be the one teaching my daughter things, and was afraid I am not ready to do that, but God bless my friends that kept telling me to take it step by step, as I will learn with time everything that I need to know. Who knew though that I my baby will be the one showing me the way? Here are some of the lessons learned from observing Arianna day by day:
Always start your day with a smile – start fresh, with positivity and good vibes. Smiling in the morning helps you get into a good mood and will give a boost of motivation to do your best to have a great day. Arianna always wakes up with a smile and shares it with the world. I have tried it, and YES, it is the best thing I did in years!
Never give up! – Arianna is a true warrior. Ever since she was born was so determined to do things on her own she amazed me every single day! She didn’t allowed us to hold her head up since she was 2 weeks old, and while doing tummy time she struggled so much but kept pushing herself to a whole new level. When she was on her back she kept pushing herself back to her tummy and tried non stop to move and hold herself up. As a result, at 14 weeks old she was rolling, at 5 months old she started crawling like a pro and now, is trying all day long to stand on her own. So determined and inspiring!
Always get up after a fall! – if life throws you down, stand up and fight! Next time will be easier! We learn from our mistakes and sometimes we have to fall to cherish our success, to be grateful for what we have. If you give up, no way you will succeed, but if you get up after your fall you will give yourself a chance to do what brings you joy and peace. Arianna had so many falls, scratches and bruises I can’t keep count, but that never threw her down! She fought even harder to be able to do whatever she wanted and she learned so fast to gain her balance, that left me with my mouth open. If a baby can do it, why couldn’t we? Why can’t this rule apply to any domain of work?
Explore your surroundings – Arianna is so interested in every little piece of paper or screw found in the house. She analyses everything in detail and finds a way for that object to entertain her. Most of things now are very useful to help her ease the discomfort to her gums, and she chews everything, but the idea of exploring your surroundings stands behind trying to look for more ways to solve a problem, by using your environment. I like to craft most of the time, and I think that using everyday household items is the most handy and creative idea, so thank you, Arianna, for inspiring mommy!
The first step is the hardest! – in life that applies everyday! The first step is always the hardest, but the more you try the easiest it gets. Just like the previous lesson, to never give up, this one encourages me to be persuasive as nothing is impossible and what appears to be very difficult now, for sure in future will be a piece of cake.
Arianna is the best thing that happened to me, she opened my eyes in so many ways and made my life a living paradise (where most of the time we are happy, but very very tired).
