i really like this post at Sunny Mummy – who are you?
after devoting pretty much ALL of me to my pregnancies and newborns for the past 3.5 years or so, i’m at a place where i’m looking in the mirror and seeing someone i’m not sure i recognise.
do you ever get that feeling? time has passed and i think i’ve lost myself! oops!
i know one thing – day to day i feel like i have to ‘do it all’. that the world will fall over if i don’t complete A to Z and back again. lately, i’ve come to realise that it’s not how i want to live. anxious and nerve ridden, guilty if i take a 2 minute break. i hold my breath and then when it’s quiet, it’s too late for anything and we start it all over again.
in the routine, i’ve lost parts of me that used to be unique, used to be fun and used to be interesting. there’s nothing wrong with babies and bad photos from my phone – but there’s more to me than that.
i’ve just got to find her.
