Get to Know Yourself Better Through Motherhood

On Being A Mother (And The Secret Trait That I never Knew I Had),” inspired this post today. I’ve always believed that you get to know yourself better through motherhood. Today the honest words of fellow mommy blogger Meagan prompted me to think about the things that I discovered about myself through years of being a mother. Here are some of them:

1. The experience of childbirth made me realize that I am capable of enduring such indescribable levels of pain.

2. Being a mom unleashed my creativity and knack for innovation (something which I never had as a youngster).

3. Motherhood made me discover just how big a part of my life Jesus is.

4. Most importantly, the daily adventures of motherhood taught me that I am capable of loving unconditionally, and doing so much for someone else without expecting anything in return.
