Swamped with kids, lack of sleep, and the million-and-one roles you play every day as mother, how do you find the motivation to keep moving forward? #overwhelm
If you’re a highly-intelligent, driven, ambitious woman, who has things she wants to accomplish in life, but feels like she’s fighting a losing battle with time…if you love your kids more than life itself and would cut anyone who suggested you spend more time away from them, yet sob with relief when you get to shower alone in silence…you’re not alone, and we should be friends.
One of the scariest parts about the transition into motherhood (whether you birth, adopt, abduct…whatever) is when you realize you don’t exist anymore. I’m not talking metaphorically. I mean the person that is “you” doesn’t exist anymore. You’re at the park one day and instead of yelling your name someone yells “Natalie’s mom!” and you instinctively turn around. You are no longer just a person, you’re someone’s mother now.
