There's nothing sure about motherhood
If there's one thing motherhood has taught me it's to go with the flow. Nevertheless, I often long for some certainty. You know, when expectations match with reality. That one plus one is two and not three. That taking the children out bowling equals 'nice outing' en not 'please knock me out with that bowling ball'.
But motherhood is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.
Thank you Forrest Gump!
With running 1+1 = 2!
One of the reasons I like running so much is that, with running, one plus one dóes make two. If you go running your body will get stronger and fitter. You don't have to worry that after three months you have to conclude: 'Boy has my body gone downhill since I've taken up running!'
On april the eight I'll be able run for at least an hour from the insecurities of motherhood.
