Remind yourself that you’re more than the roles you fill everyday;

you’re always a woman first.

In tending to the daily lists of must-be-dones, motherhood can be a lonely place where you feel like you’re the only one struggling through the unknowns. And it’s not just about having kids; it’s also about what happens after kids. Your body is different, your mind is different, your priorities are different. You are different. And that’s a beautiful thing.

In all the ways you’ve grown and changed, motherhood looks great on you.

But it’s hard to remember that when you look in the mirror at 4 p.m. and find a Cheerio that’s been stuck to your neck since breakfast. Because you haven’t even looked at yourself all day. But beyond the unglamorous daily grind is the you who exists underneath stained t-shirts, unkempt hair, and life in yoga pants. The sensual you. The covetable, sultry you who needs to escape once in awhile.

Motherhood is a journey, but so is womanhood. And in the many steps you take between bringing home baby and an empty nest, your biggest sacrifice often lies in tending to the you who lives beyond motherhood; the you who, no matter what, is always a woman first.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, be the beholder.

See yourself. Be yourself. All of you.
