Motherhood - October

Motherhood is....

Joyful. Fulfilling. Empowering. Awakening. So so many amazing things.

And also very defeating.

Because no matter how much you love being a mother, sometimes you just want to hide in a dark corner and sink into a depressing moment or phase or year.

You question everything you do, think, and know.

And other mothers.....they're so judgy and critical of your every move. Your every decision that differs from theirs.  Just because they can bond with others over it.  Like the one that tells you that you look like Harry Potter when you wear that striped shirt.  You know, cause bullying isn't just a kid thing.

Motherhood is exhausting.

All the activities. And laundry. And chauffeuring.  And necessary wine.

What happened to your 20 year old self?

What happened to your 30 year old self?

What happened to your dreams?  No, your personal ones.  The ones that are only about you.

Go pursue them.  Because you are more than "just" a mother.  And it's never too late.
