Motherhood Is

1 min readJun 8, 2023

An overwhelming explosion of emotions, usually all at once.

The feeling of never being good enough, while giving it your all.

Rediscovering your inner voice, then learning to listen to it.

Forging a new path that makes sense to you.

Feeling like everyone else knows best, and then slowly realizing that you do, too.

Trusting your intuition and doubting yourself, simultaneously.

Feeling energized and exhausted.

Reaching new highs and new lows.

Loving who you’ve become and missing who you were.

Learning and growing.

Sleepless nights.

Losing and finding yourself.

Loneliness, while never alone.

Carrying the weight of another human on your shoulders.

Adjusting to a new pace.

Wishing you could go backwards while constantly pushing forward.

Never taking a second for granted.

Wishing it would all slow down.

Taking things one day at a time.

Constantly trying to remind yourself that you are doing enough.

Remembering that you are just one person.

Taking the good with the bad.

Experiencing a new level of human connection you didn’t know existed.

Needing your own space but constantly wanting and needing them close.

Counting your blessings.

Endless eternal love.
