Generations of us women have done our part to break the chains of the kitchen and the never-ending laundry. Here are some conflicts that, for me, arise nearly on a daily basis. I wonder if you feel the same?
Motherhood is not a living sacrifice. Motherhood is teaching.
Your life is whatever you want it to be. When these little humans are born, you invited that person into your life, so lead the life you are supposed to live, while teaching the little ones how to live theirs.
Yes, things will be rearranged to make room for each new person in your life. You may find that you need more than the standard six weeks family leave, but you are still you. If you short-change yourself through sacrifices, your children learn that. What are you teaching them if you tell your children to listen to their heart as you ignore yours?
The point is … Do what you need to do because that brand new little human is your witness and your student. Live your truth and teach the child how to find their truth.
