Motherhood is a form of selflessness. Gone are the days where we had time to lay in the tanning beds and pick out a new outfit for every outing. According to my husband, he has seen me rotate the same seven sweaters since he married me.
As we have a family depending on us for their needs, it is easy for us to put our personal needs last on the list. What happened to your favorite hobby? Have you scheduled your yearly checkup or dentist appointment? When was the last time you had dinner with your friends?
Proof that motherly nature puts our needs last is when we try to schedule time with friends. Oftentimes, you plan weeks in advance and still someone cancels. Why? Because time with friends seems to be the easiest thing to let go of.
