Tomorrow is the kickoff to the #31mothers project. Each day in the month of May will feature a different woman’s story, told in her own words. I couldn’t be more honored to share the stories of these mamas with you.
Motherhood is an amazing opportunity – one that can illuminate our true purpose and highlight our best selves. For generations we have thought of motherhood as a sacrifice – and, sure, it feels that way at times. But when you meet these women, I think you’ll agree: motherhood isn’t about giving up, it’s about rising up. No matter where you are on your motherhood path, keep the faith. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Keep letting your heart lead. When we all do just that, there’s no stopping us.
