Hello,?
?
I see you. ?
I hear and feel you.?
I am listening. ?
?
I know what it’s like to walk in your shoes, maybe not the same style or size, but nonetheless, walking in the path of Motherhood. ?
?
I have been through the darkness, been through the deepest trenches of my mind. I have doubted, questioned, and argued with idea if hopeless and worthlessness. ?
?
I was encouraged, supported, and empowered while I created this life inside me, then it all didn’t matter anymore. ?
?
I felt proud, strong, and accomplished after birth; to then feel flawed, useless, and shamed within days. ?
?
My mind was my worst enemy, fueled by society, expectations, and comparisons.?
?
Then something divine happened- I gave myself a Chance. ?
?
A chance to get well.?
A chance to birth myself as well.?
A chance to grow instead of sink. ?
?
I made a decision that I was worth it.?
I made a decision that I was enough.?
I made a decision that I could do it.?
Without being perfect.?
With lots of Grace and Gratitude.?
?
?
I found my power.?
?
The same power that unconsciously created, grew, and birthed this new life. ?
?
The same power that generations of Mothers have held over centuries. ?
?
The same power we are all connected with. ?
?
It is within us all. ?
?
It is within us always. ?
?
We need to peel back the layers of insecurity, judgement, and guilt in order to uncover it. ?
?
We need to give ourselves a fighting chance. ?
?
We need to know we are fucking worth it all. ?
?
All the support.?
All the care.?
All the help.?
All the grace.?
All the love.?
?
I love you,?
?
because you are me and I am you. ?
?
Mama, you are powerful no matter what you have been through. ?
?
Mama, you have the power to move forward and be well. ?
?
Mama, you have the power to create your life. ?
?
I hope you are feeling a little anxious, very excited, and even tingly while reading this.?
?
Because it means you believe that you hold this power, even if it’s a teeny bit at this moment. ?
?
Let us come together and uncover the power we possess. ?
?
With love,?
Nicole Obenshine?
