Your thoughts are like a magnet. Everyone’s thoughts are like a magnet. The more you experience this attraction the more you will realize that the law of attraction is true. The more you think about something the more you attract it to you. Mahatma Gandhi is quoted for saying,
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
Your thoughts truly are like a magnet for the experiences you have. This past weekend, l read some of the guidance I received from friends and family. At my nautical themed baby showers, people left messages in a bottle with sayings of wisdom and encouragement. One of my friends wrote something like, “Having children will reveal strengths you never knew you had and fears you didn’t know existed.” When I read that, I completely agreed.
Fear is an illusion. I do have to remind myself that fear is an illusion though. I often use the Franklin D. Roosevelt quote, “the only thing to fear is fear itself” as a reminder. Even with this reminder, still I must have been sending out some protective mama vibes. Before I gave birth, I saw a gif of a snow leopard cub looking adorable. The gif then zooms out and the view sees the cub is standing under the front legs of a protective mama. The snow leopard mama looks fierce like she would tear apart anything remotely threatening. I wish I would have saved this gif electronically, because I have not found it again online. I have mentally replayed the image in my mind for months now.
The vibes you put out attract things back that match. My husband and I love movies. We recently sold some of them to Half Price Books to make room on our shelves. Nathan kept a couple back that he knew I had not seen yet. This past weekend we ended up watching Flight Plan and Ultraviolet. My protective mama vibes must have drawn them to me like a magnet. Both movies were about women who were strong and fought for their child fearlessly. Other people didn’t understand the drive these women had and even thought they were crazy at times. Those women didn’t stop because of others questioning them. They knew what was best for their children and defied the odds. Seeing those women helped to strengthen my resolve to do what I believe is best for my child even if others don’t understand.
As I laid in our dimly lit room with my baby who fell asleep after nursing in sideline yesterday morning, I knew I will move mountains for this child. I am overjoyed to be his mother… his protective mama. What are some of your memories from early parenthood? If you are not a parent, what are some of your memories from early childhood?
