Explore the possibility...
Once upon a time there was a woman who knew with her whole heart she was meant to be a mama. Or maybe she wasn't sure, but was open to the possibility. Or maybe she didn't think children were a part of her future...
Life unfolded as it does and she indeed had a child (or many).
She experienced moments of pure bliss and moments of... not so pure bliss.
She began feeling mixed emotions when she heard others talking about how fulfilling motherhood is... How she should savor every moment because time goes by so fast...
Yes, she was grateful to be a mom, but there were also times when she felt irritated, tired, and lonely...
And then she would feel guilty, because she loved her children. They were the light of her life, but... Motherhood just wasn't always what she thought it would be.
And some of the time she was feeling... un-fulfilled.
And those children she loved so much? Oh man, they were regularly driving her crazy!!!
