The role I carry with me every day:
The final chapter in my upcoming book, SHE: A collection of you, me, her, gives me the most amount of hope. It is the one that inspires me to keep digging into the empty pockets of my soul and find what I need to fill them up.
The role of the wonderer is a constant reminder to me that I need to keep building myself. That no matter how stretched my arms and legs might get by the responsibilities around me, I need to make sure that I stay whole.
One day my kids won’t need me so much. One day I might not work as much. One day I might find myself standing on the verandah of a home I worked hard for, feeling completely displaced. Maybe I won’t know where to place my hands, as they lay idle by my side.
We spend so much of our lives living up to the expectations of others.
We give, and we find love in that giving.
I wonder what I am giving to myself to ensure that I remain empowered.
I write, and I run, and I connect with other woman. As I grow I keep finding new interests and I make sure to put time towards those things because I am a person. I am not just the wanderer or the lover or the mother; I am #allthethings.
I imagine myself on that same verandah, staring out as my responsibilities carry themselves elsewhere. I imagine my hands itching to get into the study and write my tenth book. I imagine my feet anxious to run.
I imagine saying to myself…I am not finished yet.
P.S SHE: A collection of you, me her, is almost here. We have reached the month of publishing and SHE (for short) will be available to you as of the 8th of April.
