There are few mums that understand all ways of pregnancy from childbirth, to motherhood and knows it can definitely change them physically and emotionally.
Being a mother means being completely and totally overwhelmed with love, joy, responsibility, and selflessness. Motherhood means sleepless nights, body changes, tears, and laughter, finger-painting in the kitchen, and unlimited mess in the whole house.
However, what is the best thing about motherhood?
It’s the little things children do that put a smile on Mum’s face every day. Just knowing that you’re important to someone. Or having the love and friendship of your children, then lots of cuddles too!
Through the generations, every mother has worked hard, and no one is arguing that. But today’s generation is different, and mums are living a different life than before.
So why Modern Motherhood is hard but Most Amazing?
The beauty of motherhood is in inclusion. It is the willingness to include another life as a part of yourself. The everyday experience that makes you stronger and gives you a true sense of worth and purpose. It shifts your priorities, and your heart will burst with a love you never expect.
Let’s explore new motherhood in all its aspects – it’s sometimes terrifying, joyful, confusing, beautiful, gross, and everything under the sun! For some new mum, it is a hell of a roller coaster ride, so buckle up but don’t be afraid. The important thing to remember is, whatever you’re going through, you are NOT ALONE.
So for those of you who are about to embark on the parenting journey, this post is for you – a little insight into the trials of being ‘mum’ in this day and age. Being a mother is tough, no doubt…but it’s also the most phenomenal experience you’ll ever have in your life.
Let us share some secrets of motherhood that mums and mum-at-heart connects;
#1. Mums need to take care of themselves, too.
Taking care of ourselves is actually the best thing we can do for our kids.
#2. Mums feel lonely too.
Despite the modern parenting culture, motherhood can be isolating and lonely. We’ve moved on to a new life stage, and there are some who can’t follow us through.
#3. Mums are somewhat insane (in a positive way)
Mums are somewhat irrationally mulled over the worst possible scenarios. Do you agree?
We stand up from a deep sleep to listen to a baby’s rising chest — just to make sure. We sort of hearing a tiny voice calling us, but the house is empty. We’re thinking ahead for what could possibly happen to our children especially when out of our sight.
#4. Mums are NOT perfect.
We all know it’s the truth. If we’re doing everything at the same time, we’re not doing anything well. Mum’s life is about compromises and priorities. The season will change, as it does, and we’ll eventually have it all … just not at the same time.
Motherhood doesn’t always come naturally. That doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong. We all have heaviness in our hearts. A mixture of sadness, fear, gratitude, and bursting love…
All of our experiences may differ, but there are instances that motherhood will push you out of your comfort zone. It will test your patience, challenge, and test you physically and emotionally. But motherhood will empower you beyond recognition.
