Brown Mama Monologue Recap

The Brown Mama Monologues 2019 Renewed my Hope

Motherhood is not easy. Every mom’s monologue could start with those words. In fact, even if you’re not a mother, you know that this statement is full of truth. For 10 years, I’ve been on my own motherhood journey with my own daughters. While I thought parenthood was a lot about teaching our child/children, parenthood really is a lesson for adults as well. Thus, parenthood is a full-on journey. The journey is not a smooth straight and narrow path, it has curves, bumps, and joyous parts too. However, it’s an guarantee that everyday is going to be different because every day is cleverly changing.

I was excited to attend the Brown Mama Monologues on May 4, 2019. The show was completely sold out. I really looked forward to the experience because I knew that there were ten different women who would open up and be beautifully transparent. All ten women bravely stood before the audience and shared some of their boldest, most triumphant, hopeful, and crucial life moments as a mom.

I had so many different takeaways. However, the most profound was the power of friendship. Women need other women. We need each other’s support, presence, camaraderie and more.

Five Lessons I learned during the Brown Mama Monologues 2019 

  1. Where you start in life, doesn’t determine your future.
  2. You can grieve and grow simultaneously.
  3. Your passion can help you understand your vision.
  4. Sharing details of your life can help heal others.
  5. You don’t have to be a perfect mother to be a good mom.

Ten women celebrated their lives both confidently and courageously.

One of my favorite aspects of the Brown Mama Monologues was that Muffy Mendoza the founder and organizer of the Brown Mamas Monologues put her heart and soul into the show and it showed. The women were connected, not only by their diverse stories but they gained a sisterhood, full of compassion and leadership. This was Mendoza’s second show and it was phenomenal. Therefore, if you ever get a chance to hear the Brown Mama Monologues in person, get your ticket and be enlightened and inspired by others.

Here are a few of my favorite highlights:

I left the show feeling empowered, like whether or not I get this motherhood situation right or wrong. I am completely in good company. My kids will be resilient, and I will be OK, all together my family and I will endure. So more than anything else the primary emotion I experienced during the Brown Mama Monologues, was hope, it stood out the most.
