Motherhood: The Great Undoing, The Greatest Gift

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” – Cynthia Occelli

 

Motherhood is one of the single most trying, stretching, breaking down of self things you will ever do. It is hard. Full of extremes and opposing emotions all at once.

It is exhausting and exhilarating. It is joyous and painful. Exciting and annoying. Frustrating and inspiring. It teaches you about yourself on a level nothing else could. You find out what you are really made out of and what you lack. But if you give yourself over to the removal of selfishness, the control of every element, the ability to think about yourself first and primarily, it will change you into a better human being. More compassionate, passionate, patient, and loving.

I have never met a mother that has ever said they are not a better person because of their child. They may awe at the amount time they used to have and the way they used to carelessly waste time they didn’t even realize they had. But even after a few short months as a mother their former selves are starting to shed.  This can be grueling. But, it’s growth as a human.

During this growth the world around you will tell you that you need “me” time. This is true. you should find ways to do what you love and refresh and renew your mind. But time to “refresh” is time that is meant to make you a better mother not time that is meant to make you forget you are a mother.  This is a tough balance. But it’s key to being more fulfilled as a mother overall.

Motherhood is a gift and a priveldge. It was never said to be easy or convenient. It makes you grow up and reprioritize and see the world in a way you never have before. It should make you value human kind in a way you may not have ever thought possible.

Growing and changing is good. It’s hard, but it’s good. This is you going from seed to bud to blossom. 

Blossom mamas.  Add beauty to our world.
