I Created a Vision Board For Life Outside of Motherhood To Help Me Regain My Identity

'I owed it to my family and myself to regain a sense of individuality.'

'I owed it to my family and myself to regain a sense of individuality.'

It helps me remember there's more to me than being a mom, and that it's healthy to pursue those other interests.

fix cars , take up woodworking, and speak a second language, so onto the list they went. My blood starts pumping when I think about learning to kickbox, and I want to focus more time on developing professionally, so those two made the cut. As the wheels of who I wanted to become outside of motherhood started turning, so did my confidence that I could accomplish even more in and outside of the home. The next step was to transform all of these thoughts and ideas into an eye catching and inspiring vision board. I found pictures to symbolize each list item, printed them off, cut them out, and modgepodged them to a foam board that now sits on the desk in the corner of my room. It's not the most professional piece of art I've ever taken in, but few artistic expressions have struck me to my core quite like my vision board. Each time I catch a glimpse of my board, it breathes life into what can feel like mundane days and weeks, and reminds me that my hopes and dreams for personal development and my dedication to motherhood don't have to be mutually exclusive. I can be an engaged and devoted mother who woodworks, kickboxes, and speaks Arabic. If every spare second I have doesn't go to my kids' needs, I haven't failed. I've shown my kids what it means to develop and accomplish. I've shown them that isn't selfish, it's necessary, even when they become parents. Image Source: Read more: POPSUGAR Family
