To embrace the incredible journey that is motherhood is to reach deep within oneself, straight into the very essence of ones state of being, to reach into the depth of fear and anxiety, and pull those fears and anxieties to the forefront of ones existence. Then one must break through the armor sheltering ones heart, bring the fragile heart to the surface and wrap it tightly and firmly within the aforementioned fears and anxieties, rip a piece of ones soul free from the rest, combine these all together in one tiny, delicate bundle, and expel the bundle outward from the body, in agony and love. One will protect and revere this tiny piece of oneself for all of life hereafter, as it becomes more important than the bigger self you still possess. You will never be whole again, the most treasured piece of yourself never fully under your control again, yet you will celebrate and honor the separation. 

This is motherhood.

Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ” ― Elizabeth Stone
