Its a matter of me & myself

This was a long pregnancy.  It doesn't matter that there were a lot of different things than last time (like caring for a toddler), it was very long!
It was as I have been saying now for 9 months plus very very tiring! So after having an intense active labour, I admit I was surprised to not quite feel tired but exceptionally full of energy and health.  As soon as she was birthed, I felt light again and ready to tackle the world.  I still feel this way and that is why I am impatient- impatient for my body to fully recover, to get back in shape, to be completely me again.
In reality, the old me I know, will never be back and I know it.  The new me is a mother of 2.  With a few scars along the way.  With a lot of road to catch up right now and make good all the bad that happened in the last 9 months or so.  She is now truly a woman .  When I look at the mirror there isn't the young woman anymore.  There is this subtle change and I feel it, embrace it and can't wait to feel that wholesomeness soon.
