Modern motherhood is child-centric, society-centric, husband-centric but not mother-centric.
It is not expected or encouraged for mothers to be the center of their motherhood experience.
We lose our identity and never receive the support to re-create it.
Mothers are the casualty of motherhood.
How do we re-create that lost identity?
Through recreation – doing the things that we love. Finding ourselves through joy. Taking the time to be present with ourselves.
Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.
We do not have to be casualties of the very life we want to live. Create to re-create. Find joy again. Find yourself again.
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
