I am finding a new purpose in life since becoming a mother for the first time. I see everything anew. I am opening up for the first time in ways I've never experienced. I am more excited about connecting with other women in solidarity than my previous hyper-political, feminist rant - which definitely has it's place! I am just naturally shifting to a different plane of solidarity. Pregnancy and giving birth, nursing and nurturing my child has shown me the miracle of womanhood and the innate power we've been granted to use for the benefit of humankind, in all realms. I am grateful to read the stories in this magazine that inspire me to find my fullest, highest purpose as a woman.
