What I Know About Motherhood So Far

It’s the inability to place why you’re so tightly wound one Sunday, until you realize you haven’t been alone in weeks. It’s panicking at how easily it happened, how you managed not to notice what you needed. It’s you as an afterthought, it’s reminding yourself to think of yourself. Saying affirmations in the mirror.

Literally write down all your ideas, put them in a jar, and put that jar on a shelf. Alternatively, you can get more organized (and perhaps a bit less dramatic) and shelve your ideas in a notebook. Evernote is also a great place to collect all your thoughts. The idea (heh) is to have a place to capture your ideas so you can get them out of your head and tend to them when the time is right.
