Becoming a mother wasn’t supposed to be this way!
I loved my adorable little child to the moon and back.
And I was lucky to be a stay-at-home mom.
I had so many great friends who told me to enjoy this time of life, and savor every moment.
They told me to stop trying so hard and to accept where my life was now.
And I absolutely loved being a mother…
But something inside me still yearned for something more. Much more.
As my child grew older, our days and nights got easier. I still loved being a mom.
But my desire to find a bigger purpose in life didn’t go away.
But I felt like my transition into motherhood had swallowed up all the other parts of me.
And the harder I worked to fill the void in my heart, the larger it grew.
I wanted to feel whole. I wanted to feel capable. I wanted to feel free.
Not just for myself, but for my son as well. I wanted him to know that change doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself. I wanted him to remember a mother who was strong and capable, with a heart that overflowed with peace.
I wanted to feel like myself again.
And I knew there had to be a way.
