30 days of self-reflection: the good, the bad and the ugly

Ok, time to get serious. Let’s start this adventure off with a BANG. We will reflect on our lives. We are going to keep a journal. We are going to tell our stories. We are going to share our secrets and our memories. Even if they hurt. Why self-reflect?  Because it is necessary. In order to find out where we are going, we need to explore where we have been and where exactly we are now. I say “we,” because I am hoping some of you will join me!



I love writing and I always have. It is a long lost passion of mine. I mostly enjoy writing poems, but really writing anything satisfies me. Having this blog is one way I will follow my passion, but I want to take it a step further. Since I am searching for “life beyond mommy,” I think it would do me some good to get out of the house a little more.  With this thought in mind, I am going to enroll myself in a writing workshop. It doesn’t start until February, but I am REALLY looking forward to it. It will be a great outlet for me, and hopefully I will meet some awesome people.  Also, while in pursuit of this passion, I will try to post some of my original poetry. I would love to post some poems, and that gives me motivation. I will hold myself accountable and begin writing again.

I encourage all of you to find something you love and follow the road it leads. See where it takes you no matter what it is. Maybe you want to take a sewing class, or learn how to knit. Maybe yoga is for you, or open mic night. The possiblities are endless. If you want my advice, try to get out of the house so you can have some “me” time. We all need some kind of an outlet. Even if that just means taking a walk or going to the grocery store alone. We all have to start somewhere. You will be surprised how rewarding “me” time can be. Make it happen.

  1. Thank you for following my blog. I have been a stay at home mom for 25 plus years! I think it’s great that you are taking the time for reflection and writing even while your kids are young. I love being home with my kids, but you are so right. We are so much more than any of the jobs or roles we have in our lives, and it’s definitely worthwhile discovering just who we are.

    1. Thanks so much Mary. I really have great intentions for this blog. Stay at home moms and moms in general deserve to find themselves if they haven’t already. We need that. Atleast I know I do. Thanks for reading!


  2. I applaud your efforts -and wish you much success. I am already pursuing my life dreams by publishing my first novel. However, I accept that I may fall on my face -then I will pick myself up and start over. Just don’t forget your roots -in the effort to find yourself. You -are a mommy. It’s what you chose, so it is who you’ve become. When we get lost in discovery -we sometimes close the door, to the beauty of who we already were.
