Michelle Obama's advice on being a New Mom


I absolutely adore Michelle Obama!

I adore her more after reading Becoming.

So, when an article like this popped up on my newsfeed, I was excited.

The Duchess of Sussex asked Michelle Obama if she would answer some questions for her guest-edited issue of British Vogue.

“Being a mother has been a masterclass in letting go,” Obama wrote in response to Meghan’s question about what motherhood has taught her. “ “Try as we might, there’s only so much we can control. And, boy, have I tried — especially at first. As mothers, we just don’t want anything or anyone to hurt our babies. But life has other plans. Bruised knees, bumpy roads and broken hearts are part of the deal.”

As a new mom, I notice that I’m having a hard time with letting go and realizing I can’t do it all. I can’t prevent every fall or cry. It sounds overwhelming doesn’t it! Every article I read, every instagram post that brings motherly encouragement and doing my breathing exercises helps me let go.

I want to hear from you, let me know how Mrs. Obama’s advice helped you.
