When I was younger, I wanted to be an author. I would spend my free time writing books, filling up journals and locking away secrets in a diary.
I believe that I feel through writing. Writing down my thoughts gives me the opportunity to understand my feelings, realize the impact of my actions and find out who I am.
Lately, I’ve been so consumed with life that I have lost who I am. I let my role as a WIFE and as a MOTHER consume me in every way possible. Don’t misunderstand me but I love my family. I love my husband dearly and cannot imagine my life without his support and love. I also love my kids and would do anything for them. I’m sure you’ve heard every mom say that but if you are a mom, you know exactly what I mean. If you are not, you will never understand until you have the opportunity to experience a love so pure, so giving and so natural that can only be found between a parent and child.
I’ve worked so hard on being a WIFE and MOM that I’ve forgotten what it’s like to be ME. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to read for hours with no one interrupting me to tell me they need a drink or have to use the toilet. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to sleep in (why do kids get up so early?) and I’ve forgotten what it’s like to spend an evening with the love of my life and not talk about our kids! I miss a lot of other things too but that is not what this is about.
This blog is an attempt for me to find myself and love myself. I want to be a positive role model for my kids and the other children in my life and the only way I can do that is by writing. Let the blogging begin….
