Learning To Be Myself

As a homeschooling mom I get very little time to myself. As a homeschooling mom who's husband is away on business.... I get no time to myself. When I finally do get that rare moment when I don't have to be mom or teacher I feel a bit lost. I don't really know what to do with myself. I am not sure who I am anymore other than mom.

I become overwhelmed by the concept of time that is not being consumed by someone else's needs. I find myself asking, What do I do for myself? How should I spend this time? What do I most want or need to do for me? Then I struggle to find the answers and end up wasting the time away. I am not sure who I am or what I want. I no longer seem to know me.

The only thing I am really certain of at this point is that I need to learn to be myself. I need to find the me that is truly me and not just mom, teacher, or wife. It is time to get to know myself again and learn what it is that makes me happy and fulfilled as an individual.
