Life gets in the way

I would love to be one of the bloggers with definite purpose, vision and dedication...but alas, I am not.  My life is just crazy and interesting enough to get in the way of all my grandiose ideas of the kind of blogger I am and what this blog can become. 

Some serious stuff has been going on.  I thought at first I would let you all in on it, but now I realize that I am not the bare-it-all kind of blogger.  Maybe someday I will share this life changing experience, but not here and not today.

I have come to a place in my life where I need to refocus and start towards some new goals.  Goals like getting back into my career and getting my masters.  It's time for me to pursue my stuff, in addition to taking care of my family.  In attaining, and even in the pursuit of these goals, my family benefits.  They benefit from the income, the future income, and the happiest mommy/partner I can be.  Not that I wasn't happy as a stay-at-home mom.  I was.  But now I need to address the other parts of me that are just as important.  And I have no guilt about that.  No matter what you or anyone else thinks I should want/do as a mother.

Just like I don't fret about several days going by without a blog post.  It just doesn't matter.

  1. Amen sister! I just started back to grad school 2 weeks ago, and am still working full time-and put the little man in daycare for the first time full time. Right there with you.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
