When you become a mother, you somehow manage to lose your identity. You become so focused on everyday life, meeting the needs of your family, making sure that appointments are kept to maintain the health of your children, slaving away over a hot stove each night (after busting your butt at work all day) to ensure that your babies receive the proper nourishment and nutrition, and nine times out of ten, the only time that you can get any housework done is on the weekend, so forget about going out and having any fun! In amongst these years of hustling and bustling, you tend to lose yourself and you lose sight of what your interests are. Your dreams, desires, and aspirations get shoved so far aside that it’s difficult to locate them when you finally go looking. No matter how much you convince yourself that this will NEVER happen to you, I assure you, there is no possible way to prevent it! Your children become your world, the center of your universe, and as a result, everything that makes up “You” becomes last priority, and unfortunately, gets lost in the shuffle. It would be ideal to find a balance, but it’s just not going to happen, so you may as well just accept it. Enjoy the time that you have with your babies now. No sooner do you blink, will you find yourself suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome. Time shoots past at mach speed! Treasure each precious moment while you have it; you can reestablish your identity later on in life.
