We asked a few of our mama friends, both old and new, to finish the sentence : "MOTHERHOOD IS......." Click the gallery for their answers and take a peek inside their perspectives!
Some say being a parent is selfless, but I alway feel it's the most selfish thing I have ever done. I gain so much out of being a mother that is doesn't feel like sacrifice. My eyes have been opened to a new world and I get to see it through their eyes. The magic they see in the world allows me to see the beauty I had stopped noticing. I learn from my children daily to become a more present, patient, compassionate, and loving adult. It is the purest form of love you can ever feel, but it is also the most demanding, hardest job I have ever had (and I've had a few tough bosses!)-California Beauty, Ashley Richman in Long Beach.
MOTHERHOOD IS...To surrender!
Surrender to the feelings. The process. The lack of control. To the outcome. Earth Mama, Meredith in Oregon.
MOTHERHOOD IS...a superpower!!!
It fills my life with the biggest love-feelings. I know that love and safety are the base for building a strong personality so I make sure to give that to my girls beyond everything else.
One thing I have happily discovered is myself as a woman through motherhood. My message for my girls as future women is very simple: know yourself and do what you like! My mission is to be by their side through this constant process. How exciting is this! -Glowing Mama (expecting baby # 3!!) Sarah, in Belgium.
