I am a mom! I love being a mom but sometimes being a mom just isn’t enough. Of course there are other days when it seems like it is just too much. Especially if you are a mom of a child who has Aspergers Syndrome, another who has severe asthma and just so happen to have a husband who travels a great deal for his work.
Lately I have felt the need to find balance. Can a MOM like me embark on a journey to find my true passion which would help me to obtain this balance I so desire? I have homework to check, play dates to monitor, fights to referee and 3D models of Theodore Roosevelt to figure out how to make. My journey would need to happen between the hours of 7:50 am -2:35pm Monday to Friday- unless of course there was a snow day, then just forget about it. Also my quest for inner happiness would have to be worked around meltdowns, outbursts, quirky behaviors, breathing treatments, paying bills, doing laundry, cleaning toilets and figuring out what to make for dinner. Any tears I shed throughout the process would have to be dried before the carpool to Taekwondo and Girl Scouts would begin.
And yet I am determined to take this journey. My Aspie son told me the other day, “Mom you just need to breath more… you know relax!” He is right too.
I look forward to you joining me on my journey. My hope is that through my odyssey you will be encouraged to start your own. Because all of us probably need to just breath and relax a little more.
