In fact part of the reason this blog exists is because I wanted a challenge outside of the very intense challenges of being a mom. I trained and ran a half marathon (1:49.41....if you're wondering :), I auditioned (and I'm still hopeful) for a role with QVC, and I do a whole lot of other random "stuff" outside of this mom-ness to maintain dimensionality (is that a word? Well, it is now).
I sometimes struggle with this- it seems like doors, while not necessarily shut, are a lot more narrow when you're a mom. But I'm plugging along and little by little I'm starting to gain traction. And wouldn't you know it, just yesterday I received confirmation that my thoughts will be included in an upcoming article on Mom.me!!
It re-energized me! Provided validation for my efforts (and what mom doesn't love validation?!).
I'll share the link when it launches!!
