Risk Taking in Motherhood
I am open with my kids about my failures and my efforts to repair wrongs. I take risks every day to show up with vulnerability. It's risky because I didn't see it growing up. I learned a lot of optimism and making lemonade, but not a lot of honest acceptance of what was happening.
Many days I'm just muddling through motherhood, wits trailing behind like cans on an old "just married". I don't know how they will turn out. But with all of my heart, I will keep showing up, loud and imperfect.
