This weekend a friend told me, "Leslie, you have it all figured out." Wow. I'm gonna let you in on a little secret - I do. not. have it all figured out. Shocker, right?!!? While I'm grateful for the kind words, I want you and every other momma out there to know, I'm struggling too. I promise, I will always be honest with you here. So here it goes.....
I am seriously struggling with my identity. In my twenties, I looked everywhere for me and found an awesome chick! I loved myself fully. I loved everything I did fully. But I wanted more. I wanted that great guy, maybe some kiddos, and somehow didn't think I'd lose my independence. Well, I'm here to tell you - that sh*t will go right out the window - why - because it's not just you. Wwwhhaattt?? Yup.
Don't get me wrong, I love my husband and my kids. Honestly I couldn't be happier with how amazing they are! Going from deciding at 10pm on a Friday night to go camping and head out to having to plan a camping trip, make sure food is packed, place picked out, and then weeks later actually make it out the door - life has changed.
Here are my top 5 tips for surviving the change:
Happy Washing Y'all! ~Leslie
