Welcome to Reflective Mama
Hi! I’m Farrah.
I love to learn. Books, articles, teachers, friends, mentors, YouTube, Twitter, Google… I’m always excited to read, listen, and take in more. Oddly enough, the most interesting topics for me are ones that have usually required the most growing pains. This is especially true when a new idea or concept challenges one of my existing beliefs. They make my head spin and the whole world feel off kilter. It may take some time to process my new perspective, but I come out on the other side stronger, more informed, more nuanced, often more confused, and almost always with the desire to learn more.
Nothing has made me seek out more new information than becoming a mom. Talk about a steep learning curve. And panic. Lots of panic.
Countless books, magazines, articles, breastfeeding hotline calls, mom groups, blogs, and texts later, I discovered so many different opinions and perspectives (especially in regards to sleep). I found some amazing resources and even better support. Some of the best ideas, stories, inspiration and camaraderie came from stumbling across mommy blogs online. I am so grateful to the women who opened up their lives to others online, sharing their stories, experiences, humor, and insights. This incredible community has made me laugh and cry, challenged me to move out of my comfort zone, and most of all, believe in myself. I hope to pay it forward through Reflective Mama by sharing the resources that have helped me, along with my own experiences, adventures, reviews and reflections on being Mom and finding my true self on this remarkable ride.
Writing for Reflective Mama has helped me gather my thoughts and reflect on the chaos of being a new mom. Please wander around and explore the site. There are posts about our daily adventures and challenges, lists of my favorite reads, and the blogs that inspire me daily. I hope you enjoy reading as much and I love to write and share. Please share your thoughts, comments and feedback here and throughout the site. I look forward to hearing and learning from you soon!
