I have been dreading this day all summer…the day both my kids would both go back to school full-time. I tend to over think sometimes, ok, a lot of times. I worried about what I would do with myself when both kids were in school. Did I do enough with the kids this summer? What if I never get this opportunity again to spend summers with my kids?
I have grown and changed so much since becoming a Mom and since becoming a SAHM. I couldn’t go back to my former life, although it had suited me well at the time, I am not in the same place.
Now that I am sitting here in that dreaded moment, I have to laugh at myself! My day has turned out beautiful! After school drop-off’s, I sat in our quiet home and enjoyed my cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer and a lump or two of tears. I pulled myself together and had a fabulous lunch with a new friend. Now I’m relaxing on the deck updating my website, dreaming about what projects I want to do next. And most of all, exited about a new opportunity I am currently embarking on!
Not knowing what’s around the corner can be scary, but the moment you dip your toes in you can feel the excitement and refreshing sense of opportunity and envision the endless possibilities that surround it!
“Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride”!
