Identity…who am I?

It’s time for Five-Minute Friday with Lisa Jo at thegypsymama.com.  We get together and Lisa Jo gives ua a prompt to write on for five minutes…no more…no less.  You just write.  No editing.  No going back and tweeking.  Just straight from your heart.  Let it pour out!

Go:

It’s funny that Lisa Jo chose this word for today’s prompt.  I have been struggling with what my identitiy is these days.  I have so many and yet none are actually me.  I am a great mom, a volunteer, a wife, a homemaker, an animal lover, an avid gardener.  I am so many things and yet I feel as though I have no idea just who I really am.

Do you ever have those days?  Weeks?  Years?

I have struggled with this off and on for many years becuase I am a SAHM.  I gave up all things me to be the best mom I could ever be.  That often leaves me feeling like there is no ME.

I guess when our identity rests in what we do, who we love and how we act, it will change as we do.

Until I find mine though, would you mind keeping your eyes peeled?  If you see it give me a hollar!  I would love to have it back.  🙂
