The Story of Motherhood

Never in my life have I felt so happy and so exhausted, so "into it" and so "over it", so beautiful and so worse for wear, so alive and so tired, so organised and so unorganised, so on the front foot and so on the back foot, so hopeful and so unsure, so visionary and so withdrawn, so given to & so taken from, so extrovert and so introvert, so brave and so afraid, so confident and so timid, so in love and so out of my depth, so abundant and so fickle, so chill and so crazy, so purposeful and so aimless, so intentional & so "go with the flow".

Today I need the coffee.
