MOTHERHOOD IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION!
From the moment of conception, the journey to motherhood begins, and it never ends. The journey is a joyful one from birth – and a mother’s heart overflows with love and pride as the baby reaches every milestone, and grows into a happy child. Every mother wants to know that they are being the best mother they know how to be.
I have been wanting to write for a long time about being a working mum.
I am mum of two baby girls my eldest is 5 & my baby is 2, let me tell you nothing in life prepares you for motherhood. You would never be able to understand the word “sacrifice” fully until you are a MOTHER.
Some days I just feel like the worst mum. I’m tired, I have deadlines, demanding clients and all I can hear is “MUM” MUM” …. “MUMMMY”. All I find myself wanting is a hot bath, junk food and quiet time. Suddenly there is that note of guilt that sits on my head thinking am I good mum, how do I balance this life!
Nothing else can produce the joy or broken heart that motherhood allows. However; feeling it all, good or bad gives my life a purpose. Just the mere sight of them being kids. Their smiles, giggles and pride in new accomplishments. Many don’t understand how being a working mom is such a life-altering experience. I take my own share of mistakes, but I am a better person for knowing my children and I am very honored to be their mother. It teaches one to always rise to the occasion; I find myself constantly being challenged while stretching myself beyond all limits.
I’ve experienced more adventure in mothering my daughters, but boy do they drive a girl crazy. However, this gives me an excuse to stay forever young.
