Who Am I?
For so long
I have felt like all I was allowed to be was a mom.
That because I gave birth, I no longer got to be me.
And honestly, it’s been so draining.
So absolutely terrifying. Not that I don’t absolutely love being a mom.
But I don’t know who I am.
Who am I when I’m not taking care of 3 kids?
What do I like to do for fun?
What does self care look like for me?
When anyone asks me what my hobbies are, I stumble over my words- because what do I like to do?
This is something that I’m sure lots of moms feel, lots of moms go through... who are we when we don’t have them?
It’s especially hitting me hard currently, because my kids aren’t here with me..
And I don’t know what to do.
I spent all last night crying, because if I’m not tucking in minis at bed time, what the hell am I doing?
So I’ve decided to find me.
And right now I don’t know what that looks like.
I don’t know if that means anything honestly.
But it’s time for me to know me again.
In high school, I used to paint.
I used to dance,
I used to go on adventures.
I want to find out what that looks like now.
Now that I’m 26 and have 3 kids,
What do I look like now?
Who am I when I look in the mirror?
I want my daughters to look at me, and be inspired.
I want my sons to look at me, and see what a strong confident women looks like.
I want to be their hero.
And the only way I can do that is to know myself.
Know who I am.
So who am I?
Who is Jessica Mitchell?
Let’s find out shall we?
What are some things you enjoy doing alone?
Who are you?
Let's find ourselves together.
