So what's the mission...

I've been thinking about doing this for awhile and figured now is as good a time as any (having been inspired by a few friends :).  The past few months I have found myself thinking a lot about my life and reflecting on all the things that are great, good, ok and not really where I want them to be.  I find myself reading a lot of other people's logs thinking "I wonder if I should put some of these thoughts in writing."  So, here I am doing just that!

The mission is simple: be the best me I can be.  I know, I know, CLICHE!  The thing is over the past almost 3 (yikes!) years since A was born, I seem to have lost a bit of me.  I've tried to be the best mom I can, the best teacher, (after a promotion) the best department chair, the best daughter, the best friend and then what's left over I save for me...which isn't much.  After some reflection I have realized that if I spend a little time up front being the best me I can I will be much better at all those other things.

So here goes, I will post my "missions" as often as I can with hope of feedback, support, laughter and maybe even a little bit of ridicule...the more honesty the better!  

You're mission, if you chose to accept it, is to join me on my mission!  Welcome to the wild ride!!

Mission: accomplished!  In Progress!!


  1. I am excited that you are setting out on the mission to 'find you'! I completely understand the losing yourself idea. The other day I just wanted an hour to myself. A hot shower, going to the bathroom without the door open so I can listen for kids, a snack where a 2 year old didn't scream mine and claim it as his own! My mother says,"gee, do you think you might have some post pardom depression?". I think I might have some baby blues, yes. But over all I miss me. I love being a mom, it is a dream come true. But everyone needs to be themselves too! I wish you the best of luck, and look forward to following your progress!

  2. This is a great idea. I also have accomplished all my professional goals and am a mom of three beautiful kids, but at times feel so lost. As we speak my older children fighting and the baby is crying and I feel like I just want to cry. I also love my children, but being a mom is not easy. Good luck with the blog!!!!!
