Motherhood is a Choice You Make Everyday

Motherhood is a choice you make everyday. I read a short but very wonderful poem about motherhood today from a post titled, “I Am Every Mother,” let me to share it with you. The poem said:

Motherhood is a choice you make everyday

To put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own

To teach the hard lessons

To do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is

And to forgive yourself over and over again

For doing everything wrong

-Dona Ball

This poem just says it all for me. Motherhood is a very complex thing, but motherhood is a choice you make everyday. It makes you feel sad, angry, stressed out, and exhausted. While also making you feel elated and fulfilled. Furthermore, it makes you want to strive for perfection but also makes you accept your flaws and everybody’s flaws at the same time. Isn’t it wonderful how motherhood transforms us? Well some mothers may be expressing their regrets about having children, but as for me, at this point in my life, I would say that motherhood is the best thing that ever happened to me. Do you feel the same?
