I have to admit, I am a bit rusty and haven’t done this in 15-20 years! That fact is unbelievable to me, that I have been around long enough to have journaled 20 years ago. Well a bit about me: I am a newly 35 year old woman. Divorced. I have three amazing babies (13, 11, and 8). I am a graduate student. I am a teacher.
Those are the things I openly admit to the world. The things I do not easily admit are that I am as lost and confused as I was 20 years ago. That I am not sure where my life should be headed. That despite how it seems, I am weak and afraid. That nine times out of ten I do not know what I am doing. And that I have never truly learned to love myself.
Well, I am taking this time to work on myself. I want to be the person my children look up to. I want to be healthy. I want to be happy. One day, I want to live without self doubt.
