Being a mother is HARD! I mean like no one ever told you it would be this hard, if they did you didn’t listen. And it does not get easier when they get older, it's just a different kind of hard.
Recent events have me crying as soon as my kid gets out of my car to go to school and as I watch them ride bikes leaving the house. Watching them go out into the world, while wanting to just hold them and keep them safe. Yet I refuse to live in fear or allow them to live their lives that way.
It’s not so long ago, I was sitting in a rocking chair nursing my baby for the third time that night crying because I was so tired, bone tired.
No matter your story or current place in this thing called Motherhood, no matter how much you love being a mother, it’s hard.
To survive, you have to take time to connect with other mothers to know you are not alone in this wonderful difficult all-encompassing journey.
Yes, I lead fitness groups. Let’s be honest, it’s truly about our collective mental health in the experience of Motherhood. Fitness is my path to helping myself and other moms believe in ourselves and know we can be the best mothers we can possibly be. The mothers our children need us to be.
