The Daily Birch: Crossroads

Part of the problem is I'm afraid to be who I am truly meant to be. A slight identity crisis, if you will. I blame society for this one.

I'm a stay at home mom. A sentence I never thought I'd write.
I'm a business owner. Another sentence I never thought I'd write.
I'm a little bit crunchy, but convenience is key.
I'm a feminist.
I prefer things middle of the road.
I don't fit into neatly into any "mother" stereotypes yet everyone still tries.

What happens when you're a hybrid? What happens when you don't fit the mold?
Where do you find people like you?
Where do you go to find judgement free zones where you can just be you?

 

 

Reading The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion by Elle Luna. My pal Megan posted a photo of the book on Monday and the title was intriguing enough for me to buy it right away. I'm looking forward to seeing where it leads me.

Opening multiple packages from Amazon: a second baby play yard to extend the existing set up, more baby's birthday party supplies, and the book mentioned above.

Eating leftover pasta and roasted chicken for brunch, shrimp ceviche with mango for dinner, two cups of coffee, half of a Bloody Mary, and hot jasmine tea. 

Searching for blogs to read. I used to read blogs religiously and then life got really busy and I never got back into the swing of things. 

Feeling overwhelmed. 

Snapping the baby climbing into a plastic pool filled with toys, snacks, and decorations for her birthday party. 

Hugging my husband because he is the absolute best.
