The thing about motherhood is that it is an ultimately creative act, a sacrificial act, one that can take away individual identity and hope for the future of the self. We can use motherhood as an excuse to absorb ourselves into our children and never emerge from the other side. While we are so intent on nurturing our children there is no room for the nurturing of our creative productions.
Time to be a little more selfish.
