Synopsis
It's like being stuck in a deep dark hole. If you're able to, you look in the mirror and you don't know who you are. You don't look the same - you look tired and round. So you stop looking in the mirror. You certainly don't feel the same. Your self love and appreciation is replaced with guilt, anxiety and resentment. Your days of productivity are gone and replaced with despair. Postnatal depression is a lonely experience. You know being a mother is tough, but maybe you're the only one that can't handle the pressure, the lack of sleep, the constant and relentless nappy changes, burping, settling, swaddling...

This artwork is for everyone who is stuck in the deep dark hole. You're not alone, although it may feel that way. I promise you it gets better, every week and every month it gets easier. Your self love and self worth comes back. You will wake up one day and realise you've slept for 12 hours and your little one is quietly playing in their room. You'll start to fit in time for yourself to do the things you love doing. You'll go to your yoga classes, you'll have a coffee with friends, you'll sit at the library for an hour by yourself. Your true self is still there, sitting in the background, waiting until you're ready to put yourself first again. But for now, you're doing a good job. Know that you matter.

The lyrics written on this artwork are from Alicia Keys song 'Good Job'.

You're the engine that makes all things go
And you're always in disguise, my hero
I see your light in the dark
Smile in my face when we all know it's hard
There's no way to ever pay you back
Bless your heart, know I love you for that
Honest and selfless
I don't know if this helps it but
Good Job
You're doing a good job, a good job
You're doing a good job
Don't get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter
Matter, matter yeah
You're doing a good job, a good job
You're doing a good job
Don't get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter
Matter, matter yeah
Six in the morning
As soon as you walk through that door
Everyone needs you again
The world's out of order
It's not as sound
When you're not around
All day on your feet, hard to
Keep that energy, I know
When it feels like the end of the road
You don't let go
You just press forward
You're the engine that makes all things go
Always in disguise, my hero
I see a light in the dark
Smile in my face
When we all know it's hard
There is no way to ever pay you back
Bless your heart
Know I love you for that
Honest and selfless
I don't know if this helps it but
Good Job
You're doing a good job, a good job
Good job
You're doing a good job
Don't get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter
Matter, matter yeah
It's a good job
You're doing a good job, a good job
Good job
You're doing a good job
Don't get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter
Matter, matter yeah
The mothers, the fathers
The teachers that reach us
Strangers to friends
That show up in the end
From the bottom to the top
The listeners that hear us
This is for you
You make me fearless
You're doing a good job, a good job
You're doing a good job
Don't get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter
Matter, matter yeah
