#MotownMom: time will not slow down when something unpleasant is about to happen… #harrypotter #motownmommoxie

I’ve learned to not try to stop the bad moments from happening, but to just hold on for the ride.

Brace myself.

As a woman, we always try to control ourselves and everything around us.

But as a mother, you get clarity early in that first real labor pain.

The one when just passed three centimeters and your water has broke.

The one that tells you this is going to be the worst pain you will ever experience and you aren’t even at the halfway mark

The one that makes you decided if you are either going to handle this pain or you are going to get a drug and wave through it.

And then you question if you are strong enough.

Strong enough to live through this

Strong enough to bring life in this world

Strong enough to be a mother?

Because if this is the type of pain that will just get worse before it gets better, do we really want to go on.

Yet, you can’t stop the pain and the clock is ticking.

Tick tock… tick tock…

I embraced what was to come. Pain in all.

I let it consume me, torment me and take me to a level of life I never thought I would ever understand.

At that point I knew life was about happy moments, really sad moments and horrific pain. In order to live life you must have all, experience all and fully go through. Peace comes in the quiet once the recipe has been done right.

#MotownMom: I’m More Than My Miscarriages via #blackruby | #mentalhealth #momboss

Women aren’t broken if they can’t have children.

I felt as if someone had raided my body and pummeled my heart until it bled and broke. It hurt to breathe. It hurt to think.

Hell, it hurt to live.

I couldn’t fathom what had just happened. Mere hours ago, there had been a living being inside of me. I’d heard her heartbeat. I’d seen her on the ultrasound. I’d even felt her kick as she shuffled within my womb. I’d fantasized about her beautiful bright eyes, her smile, her chortle, the way she’d feel in my arms when I first held her, and the incredible and sacred mission of raising her.

The notion of having a child after trying so hard was both nerve-wracking and exhilarating. Every time I traced my hands across my belly, an indescribable wave of compassion, delight, and longing flooded through my body, warming me with the certainty that I’d do everything in my power to ensure a good life for her.

And now? Now there was emptiness. Abysmal loss. Anger. Maddening sadness. Despair.

#MotownMom: Forgiveness Has Healed Me And Set Me Free via #blackruby

“Forgiveness is for you and not the other person,” is a statement that I’ve heard several times and it would always make me cringe. How would forgiving someone help me and set me free?

For a long time, I didn’t know how to forgive. I didn’t know how to “let go” of what someone else did which proved to be significant after my divorce. I never forgave my ex-husband because I was angry about what took place in our marriage and how it ended. I was satisfied with blaming him for his actions which made me very bitter.

Four years post my divorce, I decided to go on a spiritual and personal development journey to discover why I held so much anger. While on my journey, I realized that I was entertaining the same type of relationships which caused hurt and disappointment. My life wasn’t changing for the better. It was a new year and a different age, but the results were the same which led me to believe that I was a broken woman.

How could I be a broken woman? I took care of the home, I made sure that our children had what they needed, and went out with my friends occasionally. I spent time with family and did volunteer work.

If you checked out my social media, I was always smiling and it appeared as if I was living my best life, but there was a pain that existed that no one could see, including me.

Truth be told, forgiveness was never a strength of mine. I just didn’t know how to let go of the hurt, frustration, and disappointment that would arise when the wrong people entered into my life, but today is a new day because I have chosen to forgive. By making it a choice, it opened my heart and mind to start a new journey.

It was also necessary to educate myself about forgiveness. The more I learned about it, the easier life became. Here is what I learned:
