“Do you enjoy being a mom?”
It had been a year of big changes for us.
I stopped working, we moved states and in with my in-laws, Matt started Physical Therapy school, I became a full-time, stay-at-home-mom and homemaker, and the pressure was on to turn my photography business into a viable income stream.
9 months later, that question was the harshest wake up call I have ever received.
With it, I had to admit that my family was in crisis, and I was a big part of the problem.
I was going through the motions, doing what I had to, what was expected of me. But I was always grumpy, stressed out of my mind, and frustrated that I couldn’t get more done.
I was there physically, but mentally and emotionally, I was far, far away.
