Busy Days & Hectic Nights, but I love it all!!!
Being a mother, wife, and friend is a tough thing to balance sometimes. Now, I’m sure my life is no different than anyone else’s, but I’ve always felt like I was missing a lot. Sure, I have a great family and I adore my children more than anything in the world, but yet and still, something was missing. I wrapped my life around my husband, around my children, and around my home. But where did that leave ME? Where did that leave my friends? For a very long time, it left those I cared for (outside of my family), right there, ON THE OUTSIDE. I could chalk it up to Post-Partum, but that could only last so long. I could say, I was in a bad mood. But for 5 years??? LoL, not hardly! But the TRUTH is: I haven’t the slightest idea why I did this. I do not know why I felt the way I felt, or why it took so long for me to reach this point in my life that I am at. Over the past 5 years, I’ve slowly begun to un-cocoon myself and realize that I can wear more than one hat at a time. To put it mildly, I was over-whelmed for 5 years! There, I said it. (relief washes over me) and as I tell my girls for 10th time tonight to “Go to Sleep!!!”, I’m happy that I’m finding my way! Even though it took a half of a decade, I know that I will and can never go back! I love it all. So hopefully this won’t be my last blog, though this IS my first one! J
