A mother’s recipe for reassurance

Motherhood is tough. But guess what? You’re doing a great job, says Bianca Waithe, founder of the Real Mums Pulpit.

Motherhood is one of the greatest journeys a woman will ever experience. The roads are rocky and the paths are unclear; sometimes we can’t see where we’re going because every day is like a process of trial and error.

Sometimes it just gets too much.

Sometimes we think the answers are in a non-existent manual of motherhood.

Sometimes we feel medication will help.

But we never get told we have all the answers to questions in the palms of our hands.

The answers that as women we are naturally equipped with, hidden inside us, ready to fight emotional battles, lift spirits, nurture moods, be the fixer, cook, tutor, cleaner, lover, sister, partner, wife, worker and, most of all, mother.

Just adding two spoons of peace, a dash of beauty, and a large handful of sanity will create the ability to cope, cleanse and continue.

Mix that with a tablet called love, a pill called relief and a full bottle of hope then soon you’ll find your journey of motherhood becoming one that is something full of realness, reality, and reason.

It’s all in the palm of your hand, ingrained in your womanhood. Mix it all together and it will make perfect sense, it will make the mum fail days easy to

recover from.

Why? Because it’s all perfectly normal.

How? Because you’re a woman.

When? Starting today.

Motherhood is the hardest, but best, job in the world and if nobody has told you yet, I’d like to tell you…

You’re doing a great job!
