The Invisible Woman

I have got to get something through my head. My hard, thick skull. It seems some times it is impenetrable. Listen carefully, Holly:

It is not about you.

Why is that so hard to internalize and practice?

I read this article just now called The Invisible Woman. I am blown away when I think of the many women and mothers I know who truly are “invisible women” and take honor in that. Wow. I see you. And I thank you for your example.

  1. It might not be about you, Holly, but it is most definitely about me. 😉

    It’s hard to keep that truth at the forefront of our thoughts, isn’t it? Maybe someday it’ll become second nature, but I guess it has to be beaten into submission until then.

    • Sarah, you are funny!
      Second Nature. Hmm, that is an interesting thought. I wonder what exactly is First nature?
      I have sticky notes dotting my house: “Its not about you.” At least I am thinking more about it.

  2. This was just what I needed to read tonight. I have been wallowing in a pity party these past few weeks and I’m ready to get over it. Your right, It isn’t about me. (at least not all the time:)

  3. That was a great read. I laughed at some of it because I’ve felt the exact same way. Thanks for sharing!

    P.S. The snake is crocheted. I got a pattern off the internet, but it was so long ago I don’t remember what website.

  4. Holly, Thanks for your two recent links to articles on motherhood. A couple weeks ago, I almost started bawling when I read “6 Reasons to Never Give Up on Motherhood.” It was exactly what I needed. Heaven sent. Although I don’t think I could or would ever give up, I’ll admit I’ve been tempted. And “The Invisible Woman” was the perfect follow up. Being a mom is the hardest role I’ve ever held but also a huge honor and so rewarding when I take time to recognize the moments. Thanks again.
