who are you?

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.

hello. i’m new to your blog and joined the 31 project. this post really resonated with me. i do understand the need to rediscover yourself. priorities + little people evolve + grow up. you do, too.

i’m consider a weekly self portrait just so i can “see” myself again. it sounds like you’re also finding ways to move forward. new journeys are good, right?

new journeys SHOULD be good – but scary at the same time
thanks so much for leaving a comment – and let me know if you do your weekly self portrait!

scary, yes. uncomfortable, yes. : ) i’m definitely going to do the project. i just need to purchase a remote first. i think it would help a lot. i’ll definitely stop by and let you know when i do.
