Who I Am

There is a quote that I keep in my family room, it is meant as a daily reminder to my children.  However, I have recently realized that it was more of reminder for me than for them.

“Remember who you are and what you stand for.”

Sounds like a good plan, right?  Can’t be too hard to do, right? 

There was the person I was while growing up as a small child, the person I became once I moved out and experienced life as a young adult, and the person that I am now as a wife and a mom.  Life has thrown me many curveballs.  And though I love the life I have, I often find myself struggling.  I am constantly trying to wrap my head around the idea that I am now a wife, a mom, a person who washes underpants all day long.

Sometimes I lose myself in the trivial things that occupy my life, which then leaves me forgetting my true self and what I stand for.

No one wants a mouthy mom.  But here, in blog world, I’m able to have an opinion.  I’m able to be myself. 

I’m looking forward to the journey!
