Seems like you lost your way a bit. You got caught up in the frenzy that is your thoughts and ambition. But you’re not on the road you thought you wanted to head down. I think it’s time you get back to your roots, get on the path to finding yourself again.
You lost your passion. Why are you here in the first place? What led you to where you are today? You love blogging and all the opportunities it opens up, but this isn’t what you want to be writing about. This isn’t your story. Yes, you enjoy sharing information and tips with others (and will continue to do so), but it’s not all you have to offer.
You have a voice, creativity, a love for writing that’s been inside you for almost two decades. You took a detour down the rabbit hole that is blogging and forgot who you are, forgot what you were trying to do, which is to connect with others like you. It’s time to get back to that. It’s time to continue to write your story.
It can all be so overwhelming. Choosing to following your dreams, to trust yourself, to invest in yourself, to believe in yourself, and to have the confidence to pursue your passions is hard when you were taught to follow the lines drawn out for you. But settling for a life you don’t want is no life at all. Take those risks, jump and have faith that you are worth it because you are.
The bright stars and successful dreamers clouded your vision. You’re not like them. You’re authentic. You’re doing this for more than just money. So it’s going to take a little more work, a little more heart. You just got a little lost in their current, in their words of false affirmation, but you’re on your way to finding yourself again.
Blogging and ambition are not the only things you lost yourself too. Becoming a mom really did a number on you. And not necessarily in a bad way, just a new kind of way and I don’t think you ever tried finding yourself again. You were content with the title of mom. You didn’t have to be anybody but mom. You could hide yourself away and just be “mom.”
But you’re more than that and your babies need you to be more than that. They need to see you happy with who you are and not what you are. You are more than a mom. You’re a wife, a sister, a friend, a blogger, a writer, and so much more.
Your babies love you, on both the good days and the bad days. They will continue to love you and your love for them will continue to grow with every passing second. Yes, you are their mother but they won’t love you any less for being who you need to be.
There’s only one thing left that stands in the way of finding yourself again. Your fear. You have to let it go. You have to let it all go. You can’t be afraid anymore. The facade needs to drop like stage curtains in the final act. Stop putting on a show nobody is watching or would want to watch. You can’t go down this path if you’re afraid of who you might find.
Let your trauma, fear, doubt, and self-criticism, motivate you forward instead of slowly drag you down like quicksand. You don’t have to be afraid of who you are meant to be. You don’t have to be afraid of what other people think. You don’t have to be afraid to for after your dreams. Learn your worth and the journey to finding yourself again will only become easier.
I know this is all easier said than done. There are so many layers of brick that you’ve wrapped around yourself. Maybe nothing can even begin to penetrate the fortress you’ve enclosed yourself in, turning it into a prison of your own making.
You can’t be trapped in your own mind anymore. So go back to your roots, reflect on who it is you want to be and who you are now. Make the changes where you need them and learn from the mistakes you have (and will) make.
It’s time to break free. It’s time to start that journey all over. It’s time to start finding yourself again!
Thanks for reading today’s blog! I hope you enjoyed it. I know it’s a lot different than what I usually write but I’ve been feeling lost lately and just started writing this.
I think I’m going to continue to post blogs like this from time-to-time because stuff like this is why I originally started blogging in the first place. I just got lost trying to be successful and I feel like that made me lose some of my authenticity.
