A Dozen Invisible Pieces and Other Confessions of Motherhood
Hi Kimmelin. My husband showed up yesterday and told me: I bought you a book!” I looked at it and it was “A dozen Visible Pieces” that I’ve been meaning to read for quite some time. Well, I started it yesterday afternoon and couldn’t put it down last night….only 30 pages left for today. I really like it. I love your honesty and the truth about the medical world. I’m also in the middle of the “motherhood Vs career” issues and a bit confused and sort of depressed too. I keep telling my friends I’m getting post-natal depression except Emma is already 13 months old, so they laugh. Winters are hard out here, especially in Livingston and the Hypnobirthing courses I have set up to teach don’t have a great feedback. So, sometimes I really ask myself if I’m on the right path or if I should just find a “normal” full time job, which would not allow me to spend quality time with Emma that I enjoy now. Pretty confusing, so your book landed in my hands at a perfect time and I soooo look up to you for having 3 kids and being such a wonderful mom, wife and business woman! Congratulations! You empower me and make me think that, maybe, I can get out of this tunnel soon. Thanks!! Sara
I so appreciate your lovely comments. I don’t entirely know how to answer: there are some days during which I feel like I truly am coming through the tunnel and that things are getting easier and looking brighter. Other days…not so much. I guess it’s the bane of motherhood, right?
I don’t think there is an easy answer except to keep asking the question: am I happy with what I’m doing? Can I do better? How can I be an instrument of greatness and inspiration amongst the world around me? Are my current, chosen activities building me up and strengthening my journey as a woman, a mother, a wife, a friend, a community member…or not?
These are the questions I continue to ask myself on a weekly if not daily basis.
Keep the faith. Your life journey has led you to the place you are at for a reason. Continue to re-assess and put your heart into whatever you do…
thanks for post.
