Last night I had a very vivid dream that awoke me with emotions of sadness and curiosity as to why I even had this dream in the first place. All I can really recall is the last bit of the dream where I sat in a classroom writing an entire page about my life. When I woke up I thought to myself, “What have I been doing with my life?” I have all these ideas that I start and never finish. Ever since I became a mom its gotten even worse. After completing my associate’s degree and starting my paralegal career I was really happy maybe for a few months until I felt like I was on a hamster wheel.
I hated the fact that I had to drop my then three month old daughter to my mom every day while I sat in a cubicle for 8 hours. I hated that all I did was copy and paste information into notices of action after I spent two years learning how to write and research like a lawyer. Something was missing from my life and I didn’t know what. All I knew was that I was never cut out to be an employee, I never really excelled at any job I had anyway.
This blog is my testament to all the moms out there who can relate to the struggle of either working in an office or being a stay at home mom (as I have done both). We are strong and even stronger when we can come together and support each other’s dreams. Even now as I write this post I have been interrupted several times by my restless toddler, but this time I won’t quit on my passion for writing. I am determined to keep going even if no one ever reads this although I hope someone will!
Stay tuned for more chronicles of this basic mom. 🙂
