My name is Cidra and I am a 38 year old mom of many boys who just enrolled in graduate school and works as a teacher. I want to find out who I am as a person if I take away the relationship I am in; or the fact that I am a mom. There has got to be more to me than a wife, and mom, right! So here is where I plan to explore hobbies, and interest, and my journey over the next few years. I love being a mom and I love being in love ( this area is very complicated at the moment) but I am not so good at loving myself.
Mostly because I have not taken the time to find myself. Childhood was difficult, and young adult life was full of other people, and their needs. As I face down being forty just next year I find myself in a type of mid- life U turn looking back on my past and asking myself just how much of my life have I lived for me, and how much have I lived for others?
So let’s see if I can make a few changes, and enjoy the good things from my past, and discover some new good things too. For example…. I love to cook and eat; but I am getting older, and need to cook and eat healthier these days. So I want to Blog about some cooking and try new things as well as keep some of the old recipes I love.
I also want to do more active things like boat on the lake and maybe join a group that hikes. I want to camp some, and enjoy being outside. There are a lot of things I want to try and to do and I want to track them and share them with others who may be like me. I can’t be the only woman in the world to look at her life at forty and say… where did I go?
There is a big world out there and I look forward to exploring it with you guys!
