On Becoming A Mother

I wasn’t always sure if motherhood is for me.

Yes, I love children and am known to be fabulous with them.

Yes, I had spent 13 years in the Early Childhood Sector before getting pregnant.

Yes, I have always wanted to be a mother.

And yet, I wasn’t always sure if motherhood is for me.

To be specific, I wasn’t sure if I am able to rise to the enormous role as a mother, while meeting the demands of my career.

I was afraid that I’d have my candle burnt at both ends.

I was afraid that I’d break the career I love.

I was afraid that I’d not have enough patience, time or capacity to love.

I was afraid that I’d ruin the potential of a wonderful life that God has placed in my hands.

I was afraid that I’d have to compromise or sacrifice my dreams and as a result, lose parts of me that I love.

And yet, the second he was placed on my chest, every single fear I had, or thought I would have, disappeared in an instance.

When I realised that I am indeed a mother to a human being – one that I could visibly see and hold – my heart expanded and opened itself to a reservoir of strength, courage and love.

Not only have I loved and thrived in my role as a mother over the past 18 months, I have also grown in my career and on top of that, pursued my passion and built a coaching practice that I love.

Motherhood has accelerated my growth in ways that I never thought would be possible.

To the working women who aren’t sure if they are fully ready for motherhood, I see you.

I see your longing, and I see your fears.

I see the reservoir of strength, courage and love that you have in you.

And if you could just see this reservoir of strength, courage and love you have in you, you would be able to step into your power to design and live life on your own terms.

If you want to put an end to your fears, or learn how to gain access to your reservoir of strength, courage and love, let’s chat!

You have a choice. You have the power to design and live life on your own terms.
