THERE AIN’T NO HOOD LIKE MOTHERHOOD
THEY SAY AND LAUGH
THEY SPEAK OUT OF EXPERIENCE
THEY HAVE THE GLIM AND GLOW IN THEIR EYES EVEN IF THEY ARE TIRED
THE LOVE CONTINUES.
I am New in the Club.
The hood is still a few miles ahead of me.
I did not reach it yet.
Not yet but soon I will arrive.
Being still, it makes me more conscious and aware on this day of MOTHERS DAY.
In one year, I will be a part of The Motherhood club, celebrating my one year with the newest love of my life…
It is a feeling like you have before you travel to a foreign country,
there are hopes and wishes of how you will experience it but you simply do not know how it is on that land…
It is a feeling of excitement for the unknown, the blind date with the person you will love.
It is a feeling of being grounded, connected to the divine mother nature like never before.
Being pregnant is the best and scariest thing I have ever done.
It asks for a commitment.
Deep commitment to yourself, your inner child and the child you carry.
It asks for a deep healing of old fears that have no longer space to follow you along the path you step on.
It asks for letting go of unnecessary social obligation and images the media puts on you!
Yes you are not skinny anymore,
& yes it hurts if people do not see the beauty of a pregnant woman and rather take the skinny and maybe even dried out form.
All this you have to face.
There are so many aspects of being a pregnant woman, a woman in general. Fitmom, healthy mom and lots more.
Bump questions being put on you, is it too big or too small and how much did you gain?
It needs to stop and you know it!!!!!
The best questions yet to come:
Are you ready for this?
Did you already fulfill all your dream?
You will give up your life!
No, no and no!!!
Because there is no time to be ready!
Because dreams do not fulfill until you are a certain age and then you figured it all out and are finally ready to have a child!
Dreams are here to grow and to be shared and most beautifully if you can keep on growing and dreaming in the company of your own child…
And final no, being pregnant is never ever about giving up anything of your life, it is more so of gaining even more to your life.
You are finally aware of your fruitful power within and you share your life as of now with a new life that comes from deep within.
There is only win in this and no lose!!
Now I am standing under the tree.
Barefeet on your roots.
I am connected to the Universe as never before.
I carry the divine feminine within and show the whole world how it grows!
I love every single second of my journey to the new hood I approach.
Celebrating my own inner source, my child and mother earth above all.
YOU ARE THE EARTH BENEATH MY FEET.
I CARRY YOU AND YOU YOU CARRY ME!!
WITH DEEP LOVE TO MOTHERS AND MOTHERS TO BE.!!!!
MY DEAR CHILD
OUR SOULS ARE CONNECTED.
I CARRY BOTH, YOU AND MY BODY.
MY DEAR CHILD
SOON THOSE BODIES WILL BE DISCONNECTED BUT OUR SOULS STAY CONNECTED, FOREVER CONNECTED.
IT IS YOUR JOURNEY AND MINE.
I SUPPORT YOU AND IF NEEDED GUIDE YOU, MY DEAR CHILD.
IT IS ABOUT PURE LOVE AND FREELY LETTING GO.
IN ORDER TO FLY,
IN ORDER FOR YOU AND ME TO DISCOVER OUR WINGS THAT CARRY YOU AND ME WHEREVER WE WANT TO GO.
