Good morning fellow bloggers. This week I am participating in #BehindTheBlogger again and this weeks phrase is "Where Do I Belong"
So when I first think of that phrase - I'm thinking this is where I belong, right here and now where I am and what I'm doing. I'm living my life, I'm on my own, I'm independent, I'm strong, I'm working, I'm still a great mom to my kids as I can be and I'm trying to be a great wife to my hubby that isn't here at the moment.
I've come a LONG ways from where I have been. I've grown up as a person, mom, wife and I continue to grow more and more every day as the woman that I strive to become.
I've realized that this is where I belong making it on my own and not only proving to myself that I can do it again after all those years of basically depending on my hubby to bring home the bacon to take care of all of us when the kids were little. But as time goes on and even back then once the kids became teens I worked from home and helped out but, it wasn't to where I had to handle everything on my own, I still had my hubby there making his steady money weekly working his butt off.
I am very proud of myself for proving to myself that I don't need or rather have to have someone else there to pick up the pieces if I fall down...I just get back up!! I have no choice but to get back up and keep moving forward. That's what being a mom is all about - you do it for them and then you learn as time goes on that you've done what you can for them and they are grown up and trying to be more independent which gives you the strength to now do things for yourself that maybe you've put off through the years etc.
So I feel that where I am here and now is where I belong. I love my kids, taking care of them as they learn to be more independent young adults, I love my job and clients. I'm happy with what I have right now and I feel that this is where I belong.
Although, I do have the dream of later on working on my deck or on my front porch watching the water and the peacefulness that being by an ocean will bring to me while working. I'm a workaholic right now and I don't mind. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I work and help others.
Have a great rest of the week!!
Love always, Lisa-Queen of Random
