Just Me

As One Door Closes, Another One Opens

It is true what they say, you know.  As one door closes, another one opens.  I’ve been dithering for the last goodness knows how long over the direction my blog is taking.  It can be said that it is directly linked with the direction my life is taking right now and the change that is afoot.

I’m in a bit of a ‘no man’s land’ right now.  I don’t really understand who I am outside of being ‘Mum’.  I’ve been trying to get there, trying to find ‘me’ again.  I’m not sure how far along on that journey I am yet.  What I do know, though, is that the ‘me’ I am finding is very different to the ‘me’ I knew before.

The question is, how will I know when I’ve found ‘me’? 

There’s no short, or long, answers to the big questions in life.  It’s like the chicken and the egg question.  (Which did come first by the way?) There’s no finite nor tangible answer to the question, I guess I’ll feel something that I haven’t felt in a while.

Today, I’ve given ‘me’ quite a bit of thought (procrastination isn’t the key to success though, so I wouldn’t recommend you follow my lead).  I’ve come up with a few things about me that I can take in a direction if I desire. 

Over the next few months, I’ll be on a journey of rediscovery.  A journey to discover who I am.  Truths will be discovered, things will change, and time leads progression. 

In short, what I am trying to say is, I may not blog regularly, I may not post often on social media.  But I will still be here, taking on step at a time on my own personal journey from Stay-at-Home Mum to whatever the hell I want to be. 

Change is as good as a rest!

    It’s hard for us all I think to know who we are after becoming mammy. We know that we are blessed but we still miss which we were or how to be us with kiddies too . You’ll get there ,I think it’s a learning process for us all x

    When you’re busy with young children it’s easy to lose an awareness of your identity. It’s still there somewhere! Best of luck with your journey.

    I agree that a change is as good as a rest. I find I near burnout with my blog from time to time and a break certainly does me good. I’ve managed to schedule posts into September freeing me up to enjoy the summer with my son. It’s refreshing knowing the blog will tick along in the background.

    I think motherhood brings so many questions for us about who we are. You become so consumed with being a mum, that you lose yourself a bit, or a lot, and it’s so important to reclaim things that are ‘you’. I actually think blogging is one of the best ways to do that – I know it’s been really helpful for me. Good luck with it – take your time and take it easy on yourself and I’m sure you’ll get to where you want to be.
