Different, Yet, The Same.


This is my final post with this amazing group.  I’ve had to make some hard choices in my busy life (you know what I’m talking about) and have been forced to prioritize my work.  I want to thank all of you for being a part of my journey this past year.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet some truly incredible people and I count myself very fortunate.  If you have been following my work, you know that I’m all about raising other women and other mothers up.  So, I leave you with this…

If you are reading this, you are probably a mom. 

And if you are a mom, you have probably felt subpar, defeated, underappreciated and overworked at some point in your journey, if not every day.

It’s the same if you are a::

working mom, a stay-at-home-mom, a breastfeeding mom, a bottle feeding mom, a co-sleeping mom, and crib mom, an attachment mom, a helicopter mom,  a mom who buys organic fruit, a mom who buys regular fruit, a mom who gave birth in the hospital, a mom who gave birth at home, a mom who vaccinates, a mom who doesn’t….  

Here’s the point. 

We are all very different.  We are all on our own unique journey.  We have different beliefs, different educations, different backgrounds.  But the simple fact that we are all mothers brings us together. 

And as wonderful as motherhood can be, damn it can be impossibly hard.  It’s time to raise each other up, respect each others differences and truly be that village…you know, that one that it’s supposed to take to raise a child.  Stand up for each other, believe in each other and spread the love.

So, if you see a fellow mom pushing her two screaming kids in a stroller, with a newborn in a carrier, sweating her butt off trying to buy milk and eggs…tell her what an awesome job she is doing. 

Because she IS.
