Capture, Cherish, Relive: The Power of Embracing Life’s Moments



In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We often forget to pause and cherish the fleeting moments that make life truly special. As a mother, entrepreneur, and legacy builder, I’ve come to realize the profound importance of capturing memories, especially with our children.

Recently, I found myself reminiscing as I scrolled through my phone. I stumbled upon photos from the time when Ollie was born. I remembered the myriad of emotions I felt during that period. The postpartum phase is a unique blend of joy, exhaustion, vulnerability, and self-reflection. In my mind, I had built up a narrative, critiquing my postpartum body, focusing on aspects like my fuller cheeks and other changes. There was a voice inside, feeding me negative self-talk, making me question my appearance in those photos.
But as I continued to scroll, a wave of gratitude washed over me. I realized that those photos weren’t just about how I looked. They were a testament to my journey, my bravery, and the beautiful bond I was forging with Ollie. I felt an overwhelming sense of thankfulness that I had chosen to be brave, to step in front of the camera even when I felt vulnerable and not quite like my usual self.

To every mama out there, I want to share this heartfelt message: Embrace every moment. Whether it’s the highs, the lows, or the in-betweens, every phase of life has its own beauty. Don’t shy away from capturing memories because of insecurities or self-doubt. Hire that photographer, ask someone to snap a photo during a casual walk, or simply take a selfie with your kids. These moments are fleeting, but the memories, especially when captured, last a lifetime. You’ll never regret it.

Remember, life is a collection of moments. Make sure you capture, cherish, and relive them.
