As I’ve entered into my 30s, I’ve looked back on my life in my 20s & realized I didn’t have as many experiences…let alone NEW experiences. In fact I was JUST a single mom. I didn’t separate BETINA from being a MOTHER. How many moms find themselves forgotten, lost, & unfulfilled because you’re too busy taking care of everyone else?
Have we allowed small & large pleasures for ourselves to be put “on hold” UNTIL the kids are grown & out the house?? Or because we’ve either bought into “Your life is over because you have kids”??! Or worst is when you’ve been one way for so long, it’s your new thinking to accept it as the “New Normal”?
You must understand life happens in seasons. At some point you need to remember what sparks your innerself, what makes you feel ALIVE, what makes your life intentional, what keeps it filled with happiness, & why you love who you are & what you’ve become!
You wont have to “live through your children” or anyone else!! I’m on a journey (WITH other mothers) to have as many 1st Time Experiences as possible to KNOW 1st hand what is for me or what I don’t like…ignoring ALL OPINIONS about what’s “best for me as a mother”.
We have 1 life. Make it memorable, make it count, & let the excitement begin…
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID SOMETHING FOR THE 1ST TIME?
