Something Just for You
Breakfast in bed, flowers and a dinner out … perfect gifts from your loved one. But you as Mom need one more—a gift from yourself, a chance to look at your life and your dreams and make sure you are going in the right direction.
Soccer, dance, playing Barbies, vacuuming, cleaning, washing, cooking, shopping, paying bills, reading, working, doctor appointments. ... It is no wonder that moms sometimes lose a sense of self. We are doing, but are we being? Moms may sense something is missing, but if asked what it is or what they actually want, they really don't know.
At some point, many moms go through what I did a few years ago. I found myself in tears. I loved my family, my life, my home, and my friends, but something was missing. I was missing me—my sense of self. I decided to take a look at my life and realized I needed a road map. Instead of looking at where I was going, I had put my journey on hold until later. It was time to include my journey in the family map.
I set a goal; something to do for me. Through the process of setting this one goal, I started a ball rolling. One goal led to another. And with the goals, I found myself. I am more balanced and guess what? So is my family.
