I had the pleasure of speaking with many wonderful moms last week who shared the things they missed doing before they had children….not that they regret having children, but just miss the pieces of themselves that were there before becoming a mom–the passions and interests that made them who they are. Some shared their personal hobbies, surfing, horseback riding, even curling up with a good book. One mom shared how she misses being a good listener to her friends, another shared that she missed working while another said she missed personal, active dialogue with friends which has now been reduced to texting. What about you? Are there pieces of yourself that you long to have or miss?
