Keepin' It Real: Motherhood-It Isn't Easy But It's Worth It11.03.2014
Obviously, I'm not saying that we all have to be continual Debbie Downers, proclaiming our troubles and woes to the world from sunup to sundown. However, I am saying that we should all acknowledge that perfection doesn't exist; doing our best to equally embrace and love the ups and the downs of motherhood.
Motherhood isn't easy, Mumsies; but it's 110% worth it. Which is why I will continue to avoid envying and comparing who and what I am as a mother to those around me; because if I don't, I will never fully get to experience the personal happiness that was intended for me when I became a mother. A fate I find far worse than my personal imperfections as a mother.
Though there will be many moments when I won't be able to change how my children choose to act and behave; I will always be able to control the type of mother I am to my children. True, there will be many days in which I falter and fall flat on my face. But that doesn't bother me, because I know I will have gone down vigorously trying to be the best mom I could become for my children; and that is more than enough for me.
