I have often been accused of having multiple personalities – usually by the men in my life who are trying desperately to figure me out. (I wouldn’t bother, if I were them). But the truth of the matter is that I am just a typical woman – wearing the wife, mother, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, business owner, aunt, niece, godmother and friend hats – and juggling all my various roles as best I can.
Most days, I can look at the mess that is life and laugh at how badly I am doing it all and that it’s a real blessing that I am not running a country, but there are other days when I have to wonder why we spend so much of our lives trying to make other people happy? If you look at my list of “roles” that I play each and ever day – you’ll see that there is no mention of “me”. Nowhere in that list, have I made mention of the fact that I also need to be ME in amongst all of this – or I will never get any of it right. And so, when I laughingly say: “It’s All About ME actually” – I mean it.
I am on a mission to discover what feeds my soul, what gives me energy and what (and who) drains it away, and where I need to reprioritize my time. It’s been a fantastic year of growth in terms of my family (Stephen and Kayla now get the very best of me – and that’s a really good step), but now its time to look at rebalancing the rest of my priorities. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
