First of all, I got a new logo that included in the post. Let me know what you think. I think it came out fantastic. It makes me really happy and proud as an author.
But back to this weeks epiphany.
So for those of you who don’t know, I gave birth to a little monster by the name of Oscar. I have talked about him in previous posts more notably my first Odes post here. He is one a very large part of why I am still alive today. I love him with every breath in me. As much as I love him, motherhood is absolutely terrifying.
No seriously, there should be some sort of test because I’m positive that I would have failed. I can honestly say that I have NO idea what I’m doing. I love my little monster and I would do anything for him so he’ll have a better life. But as far as a plan, yeah I’m kind of clueless. My basic strategy is to give him a childhood that he doesn’t have to heal from. That is basically my sole purpose in life.
The only issue with being a parent and especially a mother is that people expect mothering to be your only goal and sole purpose in life. I’m not sad to admit, that it’s not mine.
I have other dreams.
I have other goals.
There are a lot of things I want to do and achieve.
It’s not selfish of me to want to be more than a mother as long as I’m not neglecting my child.
This goes for EVERY mother. You are so much more than just a mother. Don’t let motherhood be your only credentials.
There are so many things I want to do. I am a writer. That is a passion of mine that I want to share with the world. No one should be limited because of a title.
Until next we meet,
