Have you ever been in a rut? I'm not sure if it's just that I haven't been feeling well lately or I'm just "stuck" but I have lost all motivation for anything and everything. Now let me say I am not depressed at all, I just feel I have come to a cross road.
I put a few goals on my shoulders for the new year, things like; leading a more healthy lifestyle, organizing my time better, and overall figuring out in what direction I really want to go in. What I mean by that is, I have been a SAHM again for the past 2 years. As rewarding as it has been being able to spend extra time with my children, my youngest starts school next year and I’m not sure where that leaves me. Would you believe in 12 years I have not spent one day alone – in fact I don’t think I have spent more then an hour alone. This has me thinking. Would I be better off getting back into the work force or should I take some time for me?
I’ve discussed with friends and family both my fears and goals for the future, yet find advice from those close to me sometimes annoying. I really don't want that to sound mean. It's just sometime advice from loved ones just feels forced, or it's pretty useless.
While I am someone who needs positive reinforcement and advice to guide me through, I’m also someone who would rather that advice from a stranger, or coming from someone with a little knowledge on a topic.
For example I would love to start a home based business and have tons of ideas but no one knowledgeable ( in the business sense) around me to help get me on track, and lead me down the right path. I thought about finding someone like a Miami Life Coach. In that case I could find someone knowledgeable, who is there just to help motivate me and steer me in the right direction. I also wouldn't feel as awkward as I do asking advice from close friends or family members - nor would I feel the advice was "forced".
I just need a push I guess, either that or I need to take that gel mattress pad off my bed, because seriously I haven’t wanted to get out of bed since I bought it..lol
Either way I’m sure I’ll update. Maybe I just a little me time, or to find that “thing” that sparks something inside me. Don't get me wrong, I love being Mom, Wife and of course Blogger. Nevertheless, now that I am going to be all alone for more then a few hours a day, I need to find me again, find what drives me....
I’m curious. How did you Moms adjust when all the kids were finally off to school?
