I read an interesting article aimed at Mums that asked ‘Describe yourself without mentioning anyone else’.
That struck me. I would instantly have said I’m married with 2 kids. But without mentioning anyone else it’s harder for me.
I used to also say ‘I’m a consultant in the finance industry’. But now I just do nightfill. Which is ok but its not a role I’m proud of like I was with my old job. I was head hunted for that role & it was a role that satisfied me (mostly). I felt important that I was responsible for multi-million dollar floor plans. Now I open boxes. So that wouldn’t initially come to mind either.
So what does that leave? I love hiking. But don’t really have a focus right now on anything in particular. I’m not working towards anything personally.
It made me realise how easy it is to lose your identity when you become a parent. Sometimes you put so much effort into everything and everyone else that you kinda put yourself by the wayside.
Thanks for the reality kick up the backside internet. Here’s to a new focus on me ✌🏼️
