Motherhood vs. Womanhood
"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
Alluring yet straightforward and powerful lines by legend – Maya Angelou. A mother at 16, singer, dancer, poet, film director, and a television producer, she has been an inspiration in so many ways. A mother is said to be the first woman we know in our life.
But mothers realize that loss of self, amidst this hustle is never easy; it never was. Even for women like Maya Angelou. She inspired everyone to be courageous and fearless, especially women! It was all about struggles and obstacles after she lost her mother at a young age. Then, becoming pregnant at a very young age, she had to work as a waitress and a cook. But she never gave up. She is an inspiration to moms today that we shouldn’t give up either.
When your toddler is crying or has some medical ailment, you are clueless the first time around just like every new mom is. And from there the real struggle starts.
But instead of feeling overwhelmed, every mother should ask themselves a few questions –
When did I last sit in peace, alone?
Did I take that jog that I’ve been planning for ages?
Am I taking care of myself?
Only then you realize that motherhood has overshadowed womanhood. But it doesn’t have to. Take the time you need, read a book, go for a hike, take a good hot bath, shop for yourself, get a good massage, and take some time to think for your own dreams and goals.
