Before Piper was born, my life is hazy. I barely remember my life before becoming a Mom. I remember being shocked by this amnesia when she was a baby. The fact is, I didn't exist before she was born. I was just Regan. I had big dreams, lots of passion, but no real focus. I knew I wanted to be successful, but I could never pin down what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. When I was pregnant, I was so scared of the impending life change and worried that I would never have the career I longed for.
Boy was I in for a surprise.
The day Piper was born, so was I.
Now I have a clear focus. I am a Mom! My career is to love my children. To shape them and teach them how to trust their instincts, to instill faith and confidence, to provide a lifelong role model. It's a heavy responsibility, but goodness, I wouldn't change if for the world.
Yes, I'm tired. Always.
The laundry is never-ending. Ugh.
But now that I am six years into this career, I got it! I'm in a groove, I'm a confident Mom, and I have absolute satisfaction that I'm in the right job for me. Just a Mom? Hardly. I teasingly call myself SuperMom, but honestly it is my goal. I work hard every day to be more patient than yesterday, to be more creative, to find more time, and to truly laugh and enjoy my life.
