mothering is my revolution

The act of mothering is a revolution - both personal and collective - being in a constant state of 'it's not about you', creating, building up and moving forward the next generation of people who you hope will continue to fight for a more loving and just world and finding in yourself the continuing capacity to grow, regenerate and expand in ways that you never imagined you could, and I won't even go into the sleep deprivation part! The sacrifice mothers endure - Mothering is revolutionary. I have over the last six years become hyper aware of how much I depend on my community as a mother but also how often I feel completely alone. I joked when we adopted ou second son that my calling in life was to dismantle male patriarchy by raising two loving, compassionate and feminist boys. I'm working on it. - Ana Maria Alvarez
