ABOUT THE MOTHERHOOD MAZE
Have you ever felt like you’ve lost yourself in motherhood? Me too. It’s so easy to do.
Hello and welcome! I’m Marie. I started this blog for a couple of reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, to connect with other mums to talk about not just motherhood but also about us as individuals. First and foremost, we are women. We just also happen to be mums. It is so easy to get lost, to feel overwhelmed…to wonder how we got where we are. The other reason is to follow my passion to write, to get creative and to step out of my comfort zone.
JUST A TINY LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME (MORE ABOUT ME IN MY FIRST POST HERE)
I am a stay at home mum to three young children. As a stay at home mum, I fulfill many “home executive” roles – Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer…the list goes on.
When I became a full-time mum at the end of 2010, I also gradually became a part-time me. Over the course of 5 years, my priorities changed. The kids (and dear husband) became my top priorities. Unfortunately, I was no longer my top priority. And I should have been. You see, it’s true – you can’t care for others unless you first care for yourself.
In 2016, I started working on MY goals and exploring MY passions. It is a work in progress which has taken me here.
I blogged regularly on here until mid-2018 when life and motherhood “in-the-trenches” stuff took over. It is now 2020 and my darling kids are all in full-time school and I can take a (small) breather. It’s neverending, isn’t it, this motherhood gig? Still, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
