Sarah Walkerden: “The biggest thing I’ve learnt since becoming a mum is…”

Nothing prepares you for being a parent. You can read all the books, and get advice from who ever you like, but the reality of parenthood is always quite different from your expectation. 

In the lead-up to Mother’s Day, we caught up with some friends on the biggest lessons they have learnt since becoming a mum. I’m sure their answers will fascinate and inspire you as much as they have me. We hope you enjoy the first post in our series, “The biggest thing I’ve learnt since becoming a mum is…” 

“The biggest thing I’ve learnt since becoming a mum is the importance of looking after yourself and taking time out to pursue your own passions, away from your children that allows you time to reconnect with yourself (for me it’s horse riding!). When you prioritise yourself (without guilt) you end up being a much happier, healthier mother!”
