Ακου τα σήμαντρα
των εξοχικών εκκλησιών.
Φτάνουν από πολύ μακριά
από πολύ βαθιά.
Απ’ τα χείλη των παιδιών
απ’ την άγνοια των χελιδονιών
απ’ τις άσπρες αυλές της Κυριακής
απ’ τ’ αγιοκλήματα και τους περιστεριώνες
των ταπεινών σπιτιών. —
Who am I?
I would normally say: woman, wife, mother. But lately the order has changed: it’s mother, wife and woman.
Is it a bad thing? I would normally say yes. Now I say it’s ok, it’s ok to give yourself time to be just a mom some days.
While the baby grows, his needs grows, he needs your time , he needs your attention, he needs your creativity to keep him entertained. So yeah, that’s where my energy goes and at the end of the day I just need a good night sleep ( get the joke, right?!😂 )
That doesn’t mean I neglect myself, I still love the things I did BB ( before baby ) , like fun with hubby, eating delicious food, take walks outside and find good fashion deals. But this activities have to be planned ahead ( I am a planner ) and followed strictly😂 ( so Monica of me ).
I know there is a pressure in the society to be those superwomen that can do it all. I was never good at multitasking, so my focus has to be on just one thing at a time. Since I’ve realized this I came to peace to myself and start being more patient with myself.
I know this is just a season, and I will be able to take care of my husband like I would like again. I know the time will come when I will be able to pursue my passions and work hard to achieve my dreams.
