For the purpose of something, I think writing, 20 reasons
I was recently pointed out by someone that I may not be spending enough time on the stuff that sets my soul on fire.
These were not the exact words but the point came across. What have I been doing recently actually?
I don’t know if the question hit home.
But it hit something I know that.
It was a simple question. “What did you do Sunday?”
It should have been a simple answer.
But still to me the answer was not very clear.
And I answered:
Point blank. I had no clue.
But I do know that I did something because, I was very tired at the end of the day.
So, I finished the conversation with some things I really did that day, which included doing laundry and running some errands with the kids
But still to me, my answer was
And I kept thinking.
Was I overthinking?
Am I not happy?
Am I not grateful?
What’s wrong with me?
I did the lean into joy challenge right?
The lean in to joy challenge is this exercise where you take a breath and think of the things and experiences you are thankful for.
The first thing I almost always think of is something with food and obviously my kids.
Duh my kids are very important to me.
But these voices keep coming: yes, your kids are important, but at the same time
the goal is to teach them to live independently from you,
to be something in society,
to live their best self and life
meaning that you should be independent too right?
Who am i actually? Am I really this role model I need to be?
especially for KT?
Obviously, my kids are very important in my life but apart from them?
Who am I?
A part is being a writer. Someone that puts words onto the screen. I know that. I have been writing on and off since my school bus days
where I handed out little pieces of paper too my friends with stories.
Where I had this notebook to exchange with my bff to write about our day and tell secrets
where I told stories about rollerblading to Republiek and first kisses and friendships
