I'm kind of excited as I write this post this morning. I feel like I'm starting to make some progress on my journey. I think that one of the biggest problems I faced before I started this journey was that I lacked passion. I wasn't passionate about anything except for my family. I didn't have anything that excited me in my life. Today that is different. Today I have this site. Even more exciting, I have you! I have you to share this journey with.
It has been a little over a month since I began trying to find me. I have learned so much in that time. Honestly, I don't know how long the road that I am on will be. I'm okay with that though. I recognize that this a marathon and not a sprint.
So far I think the biggest lesson I've learned has been the importance of taking care of myself. Spending a little time, energy and even a little money on myself is not selfish it is necessary. I feel like my overall mood has improved over the past month. I also feel that I have also become more patient which I think is making me a better wife and mother.
The other day, my daughters and I were in the car waiting to pick my son up from basketball tryouts. While we were waiting I put on some music for us to listen to. The last song I played was Feelin' So Good by Jennifer Lopez. One line in particular really resonated with me. In the chorus she sings, "I'm feelin' so good. I knew that I would. I'm taking care of myself like I should". I feel like I have at least reached that place in my journey. I know that I need to take care of myself and so I am.
