- The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.
When it comes to modern womanhood and motherhood, there's a beautiful movement happening - you can be whoever and whatever kind of mother you want to be. Motherhood is like a right of passage into this secret sacred world full of traditions, old and new. Suddenly, we realize we have so much love and respect for all the other incredible mothers and women in our life, and we value traditions more than ever, because they make us feel safe, grounded, and rooted in love and values.
Society is finally becoming more open-minded that being a mother can mean many different things; motherhood means working full-time, working part-time, being a stay-at-home mom, being a birth mother, a surrogate, an egg donor, going through IVF, adopting, fostering, etc.
There's a modern mamahood calling that women have a deep desire to go back to our ancestors' roots where motherhood was deeply valued and seen as a sacred transition into a new chapter of life after creating life and bringing new growth into the world.
It's most definitely a period of celebration, and it's time society allows us to channel whatever version of motherhood we want to create. Whatever journey becoming and being a mother means to us.
What a beautiful time to celebrate getting to "mom" the way we want to; the way that feels right. The way that feels like home.
When you Google "motherhood," the definition that pops up is "the state of being a mother." Well....that's elaborate...
The World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings revealed that gender parity is over 200 years away...umm, what?! There is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity, and women's equality in and outside of the workplace has never been more apparent than it is now, especially being fueled by movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp (Press for Progress campaign, 2018).
Obviously, gender parity is not a movement and a change that can happen overnight, but FIT4MOM is a company formed by moms and run by moms, and has truly blazed the trail for moms to build thriving careers and own successful businesses directly alongside of motherhood. We have constantly been pressing for progress to give women a voice, a career, the Strength In MotherhoodTM, to create and be part of a community - a mamahood sisterhood - and to feel empowered, strong, and become a business owner and entrepreneur.
