A few years ago, I was just Carolyn. A wife, daughter, sister.
I travelled, stayed up past 9 p.m., slept in, and ate whenever I wanted.
Then I became a Mom, and my life changed. Completely.
It hasn’t been easy, in fact there have been days when I just want
to curl up in bed and cry, or just have 2 full minutes to myself.
But, it has also has been fun, rewarding, and a huge learning experience.
I’ve found myself:
Thinking more, knowing that I am influencing my daughters with my words and actions.
Eating better, as I have two little girls to grow.
Exercising more, as I need my stamina to keep up with them.
And despite trying my best everyday, I wonder if I do enough? Is it right?
Am I missing something? Do I need to do more?
Have I given enough to my daughters? My Husband?
And so I write, engage others, share, because it’s hard.
Being a wife.
And I like to know I’m not alone.
