My children have undoubtedly taught me more than I have taught them. They have taught me to shed any selfish expectations I may have had. They have taught me to live in the moment, with an awareness of what that present moment requires. And they have taught me a depth of love and understanding I never imagined possible.
Motherhood is a spiritual journey. It is a constant evolution, and at times an extremely worrying one. As I blindly lead my children through their early lives I am continually questioning myself about what I am teaching them, and my ability to be a parent, I think motherhood is about reaching a point where you can say, “I’m ok with who I am and the job I’m doing.”
But remember life is short, so we should always wear our party pants …or hair.
