Every one of us is different and unique. I like to think there is no other person just like me, nor is there another person just like you. I have needs, wants and desires. Sure some do get put on the back burner, those that are not vitally important or realistic to this time in my life. One such want or desire is to get to learn how other cultures live in the United States. I want to travel more but I also don’t wish to be away from my children all of the time, so that want or desire is placed on back burner to allow me to enjoy my children’s years of childhood.
I love to write, writing is my therapy. I tend to get angry and upset if I am not able to write at least once per day. Writing a product review, an opinion post or an article for another website makes me feel accomplished, even if it is just one post that took me 15 minutes to write. I need that time to myself in peace and quiet to write.
I am a person who needs to socialize. I feed off of other people’s energy and so that means I have to be around people on a regular basis. Being couped up in my home with children isn’t healthy for me, I start to fall off teeter and can’t get balanced. I need that energy that comes from socializing with other adults. I love smiling and laughing and having debates with others. I tend to enjoy hearing about what other people’s passions are and what excites them in life. I am fascinated by people.
I love being a mother, but this is not what defines me. I refused to be defined as a “mom” because of course that is what I am but I am so much more than that. I don’t need my children around all of the time to feel accomplished or happy. I simply know “mom” is a huge part of me and will always be, however, I am still my own “woman”.
Being hugged, told positive praise and supported in all that happens with me is something that makes me feel great. I love praise. Sometimes I praise myself inside of my own head if no one is around to help boost me, I boost myself. I stick my head up, put my back straight and tell myself that I am simply awesome and if no one else can see that awesome power I have to uplift myself and others, then they are simply missing out on the higher powers I have held within myself.
I am, in a nutshell a; writer, mother, lover, friend, passionate soul and giver.
What makes you a person? I know most of you are parents reading this, but what else makes you who you are?
