About Quest 2B Me

I used to hear women talk about how they had “lost themselves” or that they  “weren’t sure who they were anymore”.  It all sounded like a bunch of hooey to me.  What were they talking about?  Hello?!  How is it possible to not know who you are or to lose yourself?  Last time I looked in the mirror, I was right there and I had no difficulty recognizing myself!   Well, fast forward about 10 years, 1 husband and 3 children later and now I get it. 

I consider myself to be a very happy, funny, upbeat person.  I adore my husband and children.  I love surrounding myself with friends and family and truly enjoy being involved in my children’s activities and in the community as a whole.  It’s just that at times I feel as though I spend the majority of my life working to improve the life of everyone around me.  So this blog is my attempt at spending a little time to improve my own.

Don’t worry, Quest 2B Me does not consist of post after post of boring self discovery and improvement babble.  I just liked the idea of having a place to share my thoughts, ideas and crazy tales of insanity in a world where I’m sure I will find at least one other person who might relate.

    Hi Quester–
    I didn’t think I could lose “me” either. I had 4 kids in 7 years.
    What surprised me even more is how much I got attached to being a mother- when it “ran out” I fell hard. Luckily, I had a paying job and I have other interests, too 🙂
    Motherhood has been quite a run.

    Would you be interested in reviewing a book on chores & kids?
    “Raising Able – how chores cultivate competent young people”
    If so- email me your address and I’ll send a review copy.

    I love it! Yes, a happy life — great kiddos and a loving hubbie — and upbeat. I resonate with that. Though I have my days, I really do like my life…and I kinda know who I am — or at least the “flavor” or vibe of who I am, though the particulars of how this gets expressed change over time. I am drawn toward the light…even when I am down. So I hear you, sista! Keep writin’! I’m following!
