Well here it goes, my very first “blog.” It is safe to say that I am no computer genius. In fact, I am so computer illiterate I barely got this thing up and running. But here we are. Most of the credit belongs to two people: my friend D, for coming over last night, making some amazing mimosas and showing me the way around a computer. And to my beautiful sister G for reminding me “only you can make a difference in your life.” Such profound words, that are now embedded in my mind for eternity. It is funny how much of a difference words can make in our lives. Oddly enough, these are the exact words that I needed to open a new chapter in my life. Like a lost key to a secret door. Let’s begin.
I am a stay at home mom, and I do all of the things any stay at home mom does. However, I should clarify that I do not want this blog to only be about that, because there is more to me than being a wife and mother. Just like there is more to you. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love motherhood and I love my husband. So much so that I gave birth four times. I have spent years growing life in my belly, countless hours breastfeeding, changed thousand of diapers, and given hundreds of baths. I have wiped tons of snotty noses with my hand onto my pjs while trying desperately to get my toddlers settled for five minutes so I can take the time to finally drink the cup of coffee I poured two hours ago. So let’s be honest, I think it may be time for something more. Don’t you? What is the purpose of my life other than being a mother and a wife? Who am I? I mean really, how will I ever know the answers to these questions if I don’t start looking? How can I follow my dreams if I don’t even know what they are? I am thirty years old and somehow within the passing of the last ten years or so, I have slowly lost who I am. Where did I go? Was I ever myself to begin with? Thus the journey begins.
