“Motherhood is about accepting the limitations of time & energy which stretch beyond you, even though sometimes it feels as though it could consume you.
Search for & hold on to your own true self. If you lose that, what kind of mother can you be? . . .
Seize your days & dwell in them fully. Look at your children, because they know how to inhabit brief periods of time with extreme passion, & for nothing more really than for the sake of those moments. They can help you remember that, if you only slow down & let them.
Feel fortunate, because chances are good that you actually might be.”
Quoted from the movie ‘Motherhood’ starring Uma Thurman that I have just now finished watching. I don’t care that it got terrible reviews because this movie really resonated with me. Seemed to reflect so much of what I am feeling at this particular time in my life. Do the bad reviews reflect the value of motherhood in our society or merely the lack of glamour in association with motherhood? Have you seen it? Do.
