Do you ever feel that you've lost yourself? You've lost the person that you were before you had kids? That those dreams and hopes and hobbies are kind of pushed to the side. Or to the back, or that they've disappeared?

Why does that happen?

It's not good. Not good at all.

I believe our children need to see that we are people too. They need to see that we have dreams, and they especially need to see that we are taking steps to make those dreams come true.

If we can do and be that in front of our kids, then I believe it teaches them to do the same in their own lives.

We can only be martyrs for an hour a day (I mean, let's be realistic here), but then we have to get off our butts and be who we were created to be. And we need to do so without GUILT.

It's good for us, for our hearts, minds and souls. And it will only serve to better our friendships, our marriage, our children and our self esteem.

Yes, I'm a mom, but I am so much more.

And so are you.
