Howdy, friends!

You know, when I started this blog back in 2014 I was “exploring the cave inside me” (if that makes any sense), to see if I could find pieces of myself I had shed in trying to be someone else — the daughter mom thought I should be, the successful career woman, a perfect mother and wife, a great kindergarten teacher, or all of these at the same time!  Yadah, yadah, yadah… We wear so many hats in our life that it truly is hard to make all those women who were me fit together in one “cohesive” person. It took me six years on here digging around in that cave that is me to figure out that even if you find some missing pieces they’re not going to fit together right again. And doing so makes you even less of yourself. I ran across a quote the other day:

Life isn’t about
making ourselves
into something else.
It is about
coming home
to who we really are.

(Tara Ward)

You know, after all these years I’m still not sure who I am… Am I making it too hard? How about you? What does this quote mean to you?
