And I have officially been sucked into the monotony of a working mom’s life. J
Definitely need an outlet that allows me to pause, and live in the moment (However clichéd that sounds!) There have been moments, but not all have been exactly the ones I have aspired for, leaving behind an insatiable hunger for more in life. So it is time to pause, reflect, speak out and hopefully incorporate some changes.
Some moments from my life now.
OMG moment every single time I think about it: I am a mom of a middle schooler! And a middle school girl at that! Yes, that means hormones, independence, lots of homework, peer pressure, attitude and did I mention hormones?
Where did my baby go moment: My baby is now a first grader! Who leaves my hands as soon as she notices a friend, no longer brings me books to read to her, no longer thinks breaking into impromptu songs is cool, is emerging out to be her own self and no longer a shadow of me.
What has been your favorite date night moment: GULP! We are so zapped out of energy by the night that there is a struggle to even remember the date.
How many years of work experience question moment: Counting on my fingers as I struggle hard to get the number, which eventually does not match the strands of gray hair peeking out from my head. The “I errr.. took a break for a few years” explanation, never fails to bring out the weirdest of expressions in people.
How do I say no moment: I have still not been able to master the art of saying no. The days that I do decide I will say no the next day, I chastise myself so much and even get dreams of having gone to the dark side that I wake up and say YES.
Well a lot said, I want to really make a change to help myself and for starters I want to start writing/blogging again and continue with the 100 Happy Days challenge that I had started back in 2014. 70 more to go.... :)
