I have trouble even remembering who that person was.
Through time spent focusing on marriage, and kids, and career, I think I’ve slowly lost track of me, or at least some parts of me.
So I’m asking myself…
What do I really like to do?
-As opposed to the things I need to do or feel obligated to do or the things I do just to avoid rocking the boat. So. Many. Things. And, of course, I used to allow myself copious amounts of wine to compensate.
Which friendships are real?
-As opposed to those friends mainly of convenience via family or spouse or work? Or, argh, drinking friends…
What are my goals?
-Are there goals besides marriage, kids, and career? There must be something else. Beware the dark side of boredom – a bottle of wine lurks over there.
I feel kind of sad/embarrassed to be asking these questions, but a little excited too.
I’m trying to think back to pre-career, pre-husband, and definitely pre-kid me. Who was that girl? What did she want? Well, she wanted career, husband, and kids!
But what else?
I’m sure I’ll think of something. 😉
