Can you believe it? Here in Cleveland, we just had a major snow storm...but nonetheless, here it is: A sign of spring!
Feruary in Review: Looking back on the last 28 days, I have noticed a few poignant nuggets that are important pieces of my rediscovery journey.
- When I wrote the last part of How Did I Get Here? it became clear that I need to honor ME - who I am separate from being a wife and a mom.
- I need to let go of self-created definitions of what it means to be a "good mom" and who I think I am. These definitions are destructive, guilt-ridden, unfair, and limiting. It is time to rewrite my dictionary.
- A shift in how I think about what I think, can seriously change my mood, feelings, and reactions. My thoughts - are merely thoughts. Not truths.
- And, wonderful words of advice (thanks DK!) I received after posting Heinous Balls of Goodness, I am going to work to try to Embrace Imperfection.
