Let’s face it, there will come a day when there are no more diapers to change, no more baths to give, and no more sippy cups to wash. Then what? What’s next? Hopefully on this adventure we will figure that out. This is a a journey to self discovery that I sincerely hope you will follow. I want you to follow this story not for the fame or the recognition. Only for the simple fact that I know there are others just like me. I am reaching out to you. Maybe we can find ourselves together. We are searching for the same thing. Who are we under this mask that we wear in order to get us through the constant struggles of being human. I want you to follow this journey in the hopes that one day you may gain some motivation or inspiration from my hardships. I am sure this adventure will not be an easy one. I choose to share my story with the world because I believe my vulnerability will help pave the path I must take to find myself beyond motherhood. Also, even if just one person gains some insight from the mistakes I have made and the lessons I have learned, my life will feel a little more complete. Perhaps that sense of completeness is all I need to find me.
Call it cliche, but for all extensive purposes I have found an outline on wikihow.com that acts as an aid in finding yourself. Perfect right? You can view it for yourself here: m.wikihow.com/Find-Yourself. I intend on using this as a guideline. Will it work? We shall see. If it doesn’t and I still have no idea who I am or where I am going, we will move one. Every single person that reads this blog is important to me. Every story, every comment and every ounce of feedback is appreciated and is encouraged. This is not only a safe place for me, but for all of you as well. I will never judge as I hope you will not judge me. From this moment on, my life is an open book. Ask me questions and I will always answer them as genuinely as I possibly can. You can leave comments here, or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s take this journey together.
