A Love Letter to Motherhood

Dear Motherhood, 

I thought I knew myself, and then you came. 

At first, the approach tactical, your intentions unclear. Slowly, you become more strategic, leading me down a mirror-lined road with dim lighting that reflects within. 

It's there, on that path, you introduce me to places, faces, thoughts and things I never knew existed.

You challenge me. You praise me. You raise me up constantly, calling me to be the best you know I can be. 

You often back me into the wall of self-care - I know, it's all done in the name of love. 

Argh, you've become the judge of all things - how I spend my time, what I eat and how much I sleep!

In the next breath; you pull me up by the collar whenever I fall down, whispering gently "start again." 

You capitalize on my ambition - summoning me to teach as I learn; to venture a path that has been avoided by generations upon generations.

Motherhood you can be tough, oh you are tough! But despite your tough love, you are always there - offering the first shoulder and the first listening ear.

Sometimes I just need a break from you, honestly. 

And in my solitude, I see you clearly for what you are: 

My greatest blessing;

My greatest love,

My greatest teacher,

And my greatest friend,

Motherhood, you are like no other. 

 

Forever Your Protégé,

Georgia Lobban ❤️
