Are you more than somebody’s wife/mom/other?

March 20, 2010 mustflymom

Moms Reinvented is a blog for women of all ages who find themselves “suddenly single” after a lifetime of living for others, of being identified as “His Wife” or “Their Mother”. Women are nurturers who dream of happily-ever-after and white picket fences. We give 150% of ourselves to our families, to causes, to friends. One day, the children grow and move on, and as if empty nest syndrome is not traumatic enough, daddy leaves for a girlie who could be one of our offspring if she were more attractive and intelligent!

      In a little over a year, I have grown into my own clothing. Teacher, writer, lover, friend. I have found that with spirit renewed, nothing stops me. I am more reflective as I seek more knowledge and network within my community. Mentor, teacher, friend. Yes, these too are labels but they feel like I am accessorizing my new wardrobe of daily living. SUP, rowing, bicyling, walking, again cooking for friends and family, friending my parents. I am so much more now than wife and mom whose actions and servitude are dictated by the needs of others. I still serve and nurture, but I celebrate, watching my own children evolve and parent. Meeting a man — the love of my childhood — finding that now we are ready for each other. No use lamienting over years lost, or youth not shared. Now is our time and now is paradise. I have proven that I don’t need a man to survivie — but this man, I want in my life. This man, I love growing old with. This man, my eternal husband-to-be. He is my balance, my calm, my heart. And he approves of me as I am.
