Last year, I read a lot of blogs. I saw the gambit from complaining about parenthood to wildly inventive (but time-consuming and extensive) DIY projects. I enjoyed reading them all.
What was noticeably absent was the tie between motherhood and work. Up to 19% of mothers are likely to develop postpartum depression and 10% of mothers stay depressed (at some level) thereafter. Studies are still rolling in on why this is the case, but I’d like to throw my guess out there:
We try to be everything to everybody.
We love our husbands.
We love our children.
We love our extended family.
We love our jobs (or we don’t).
But we live to make sure that everyone ELSE is happy and in doing so, few of us are really happy.
I’d like to change that or at least help.
Whether your job is raising your children or a corporate executive, I’d like to change the way you think about your day to bring yourself more happiness.
Out of this, Modernish Mommas was born.
