Finding yourself in the role of motherhood is key for all of us.
As moms finding yourself in the role of motherhood can be a challenge. It is common for us to let our identity become wrapped up in something else. Whether it is our kids, our marriages, or our jobs, we tie what who we are with those things. Whenever you ask a mom about herself she will most likely say her name, who her husband is, where she works or stays home, and how many kids she has. However, when you ask to share what she likes to do, there will be silence.
I believe part of this is because we tend to lose ourselves in the role of motherhood.
I often share how I dreamed of being a mom. In fact, when my husband and I were dating and it was getting serious, I told him that I planned to stay home with my kids when the time came It was so important to me that I made sure he understood that as we progressed into engagement.
While I adore staying home with my kids and would not change it for anything, I did not anticipate this love for creating. I did not envision myself as a blogger or creative person. Yet, here I am.
As I write this, I think about how each of us have so many unique gifts. Many of these were revealed when we were younger, but somewhere along the way, we let them slip away. Perhaps we didn’t think it was important or maybe we thought it was just a silly thing, whatever the reason we let those beloved pastimes slide away.
Growing up, I loved reading and wring. I had journal upon journal filled with stories. As I think of that now, it should not be any surprise at what I am doing now.
If you are feeling as though you are lost in motherhood, it is time to focus on finding yourself.
Three Questions to Ask Yourself
- What did you love to do when you were a child?
- What gives you life?
- How can you add this thing or these things into your everyday life?
I want to cheer you on moms. It is so vital to our growth as women that we are digging into our passions and gifts. Eventually, our kids do grow up. When they do, we need to have things to focus on and it is good for them to see us doing what we love.
