Who am I now?
My Journey of Identity
A lot has changed since my last post. Actually, I had forgotten for a long while that I even had a blog. Clearly, I am not a writer, or a blogger, or an author. Who am I now?
That feels like a trick question. I am not really sure. I am recently quit my job as a nurse– and not really sure I still want to be one. I AM a wife, a mother, and a child of God. I find myself thinking “that’s it” at the end of that last sentence. I am a wife, a mother, and a child of God. That’s it. But….. isn’t that wrong thinking?? THAT’S IT??? Those three things are HUGE! I am a child of God. He has given me a purpose. He has given me a mission. To be the best wife I can be and to raise my four humans to love the Lord and become amazing, awesome adults.
One of them is almost there. I have spent this past year realizing that I am experiencing a lot of lasts. His last first day of school, his last cross country meet, his last prom, his last homecoming, his last Parent’s Day at school, last, last, last. But– we are on the cusp of many firsts, too! He is growing to be an amazing young man and I am so very proud of him! Because I have been given the chance to lose my identity as a working-mom nurse, I have been able to enjoy these moments more freely– and for that I am thankful!
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Right now, I am decluttering like crazy my entire house. 60+ garbages to donate and a trailer full of garbage. I didn’t even know we had that much we could part with! But– alas, there is much more I could do! Re-inventing– or maybe rediscovering who I am and what that looks like for me and my family.
Need help decluttering?? I’m becoming quite the pro! Give me a call– I’ve got the time to help!
