Motherhood is all about selflessness. That’s what we’re taught, right? It’s about giving yourself up during these tender, precious years of childhood. It’s about sacrificing our own desires, yielding to self.
But here’s the thing: in all that selflessness I’m losing myself. And if I get lost, who will be here to be the mother?
So this morning I’m making a concerted effort to be selfish. I want a feast, I want a BEAN FEAST, and I’m gonna get it too, because this mama is tired of the back burner. I’m melting back there…melting into nothing. And nothing just doesn’t work for me. At. All.
