Another Stream of Consciousness Sunday has arrived & what is today’s writing prompt? Write about the distractions you have right now.
As I finished up a blog post last night where I just emptied my mind & wrote about whatever mattered to me - I felt so liberated - whether anyone else cared about what was important to me was irrelevant. I wish I could recreate that feeling in everything else I do.
Being a working Mom presents so many distractions - things that pull your focus away from living your own life & drop you into the world of making other people happy. My biggest distraction right now is myself. I have so many unmet goals & expectations that life is becoming a pacifier. It's okay because I'm busy with this & that, so what I need is not so important.
Problem is - I need to be important and I need to feel worthy of better. Worthy to go after my dreams for a better career, a more fulfilling day-to-day existence, richer friendships, and of course a better body.
All those things will help me be a better wife & mother - all the pieces would start to fall into place. But until I check my own distractions at the door and start living a life I am totally satisfied with, nothing else will feel whole, complete or fulfilling.
Something I know many of us struggle with.
