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!
SELF-REFLECTION : DAY 1
FIND SOMETHING YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT AND PURSUE IT
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.
