Defining a Movement

I saw this video on another blog and it really hit home. Right now with the addition of another kid and all the changes that come with it, I've been thinking about motherhood a lot. Its the most wonderful, rewarding, hardest, thankless job in the world. Next to impossible to explain to someone who isn't a mother how it will feel to become one. I think the pressure we put on ourselves as women and mothers is so crazy, yet we all do it and aren't sure how to stop. In the end, this is our job. It's our life. We all just have to learn how to balance it out a little and stay sane.

I know this video was made to promote a blog conference. I'm not posting it for that reason. I thought it was so truthful, uplifting, and beautiful.
