It’s been 1 year since becoming a SAHM and I see a quarterly pattern developing.
A pattern of unrest; the feeling to do something more. I blog here and very part-time for a company called Spa for the Soul and that is rewarding. Parenting and being a wife are also rewarding but not always the kind of intrinsic reward I’m looking for.
Being a mother is admirable and based on my challenges to become a mother, I should be overjoyed to be just that – but I am human and quite imperfect. I hate that I feel that way.
Good news though, I have found that diving into my biggest goal, writing a children’s book, seems to simmer down that anxious feeling. For now.
Do you have a pattern in your life? If so, how do you move through it?
