I grew up as a mother who was in awe of my own abilities to nurture my own children.
I never questioned that I could be a mother.
I grew up thinking it was possible, and I thought it was my destiny.
I thought my work and my talents could somehow change the world.
When my first child was born, my mother was working full-time, but I was the breadwinner.
I didn’t have a clue what that meant, or what my role in that world was.
I just knew I had to do what I loved.
I spent years in my 20s trying to find my place in the world, and eventually found my niche.
I was an aspiring filmmaker, an actor, a musician, a writer, and an actor’s wife.
My work has changed my life, and helped me connect with other women in the field of gender studies.
It has opened doors for me to talk openly about the experiences of being a mother and mothering in general.
I’ve met so many women who are now speaking out about the challenges and rewards of motherhood.
I don’t always agree with all of my daughters views, but my daughters perspective has helped me understand their perspective on motherhood and the challenges of it.
And I’m glad I’m the one who’s seen it.
I believe that our lives have a lot of value and meaning in the end.
I believe we can and should be thankful for all the wonderful things that our mothers have given us.
I think we can be so lucky if we embrace the role of mother and give it our all.
