like many women i know, i am trying to figure out what's next for me. in exactly one year sam and zoe go off to college probably never to really return home for any significant length of time.
i've spent the last ten years firing up two girls. helping them figure out who they are and encouraging them to stay true to that.
i have talked to them about everything hoping that by example they will learn how to talk about everything because it's often
hard for women to ask for the things they need/want.
of course i could say i lost myself somewhere along the way but i don't see it that way. there's so much about parenting that
forces you to crystallize who you are and i see this as a big gain.
But so what?
i know i need to push back from helping others dream so i can forge ones of my own.
sometimes it's just hard to know where to begin.
