J is for just jump in.
Yes into motherhood.
Nothing prepares you for life experiences, as much as living through them does. It has been the same with everything, for me at least – university, hostel life, job hunting, relationships, the thought of getting married, being married and then having a baby. Aah, therein lies the rub. You and your significant other grow together as a couple. And you are just about settling in to the comfort of each other and the life and routine you have built for yourselves as an individual and as one unit, and then suddenly BOOM. All that goes out of the window. Foundations shake, windows rattle and the paint begins to peel off.
But you still JUMP into motherhood, like its the most natural thing to do in life.
