As a new mom, I'm currently writing a role that's exciting, challenging, rewarding, and all-encompassing. I've really had to learn how to accept and love myself in a way I've never experienced before. It's been a journey to redefine who I am as a woman and wife within this context, yet I'm learning that the process is just as much a part of that journey as the result. Creating a family as a mother is a powerful place to be and being able to speak to others about it and share different experiences helps make it even more meaningful.
