What's Your Thing?

Do you ever feel frustrated with your life? Like you should be doing something else? Anything else?

Sometimes, okay most of the time for me anyway, it feels like I need to be doing something more with my life. I left my job about 7 years ago and stay home with my 2 boys. I love them dearly, but I feel like I'm treading water.

That sinking feeling was part of the reason I started blogging. First it was ebay. I thought selling on ebay could be a potential business. Actually, that was hubs' idea. Buying cheap and selling for a profit didn't turn out to be something I really enjoyed.

Then I had babies. Oh, how I wanted those babies! After I had them, I started to panic. Can I do this? Day in, day out? Me and the boys? Just us. All day. Every day.

Some women are cut out to be mothers. That's their full-time job and they love it and they're great at it. They thrive raising children. They love the diapers, cooking, cleaning, organizing, playdates. Me . . . come to find, not so much.

During my 2nd pregnancy, I took to the blogosphere. I enjoy it, but I'm not thriving at it. I've always questioned what it is I want - what do I want to do. I never knew and suppose I still don't. I feel stuck in a rut. I listen and see the things other moms are doing and wonder what my "thing" is. I hope I find it soon. My life is already pretty much half over.


  1. I wish you luck in finding "it". I think we all get lost sometimes, even if we appear not to on the outside!

  2. I'm not sure we are ever meant to find our "thing". Maybe part of life is continuously searching for a new "thing"...a part of growing and changing and becoming a better person. Just when you think you've figured your thing out, life does a little flip and you realize you need to start moving towards something bigger and better.

  3. I just don't have time to create the type of blog I really want.
