I already know that this journey comes with a lot of moments that I would not classify as “kodak moments”. The journey prior to my daughter’s arrival was not an easy one… but that is behind us now. There are difficult and challenging days. Days when all I need is a bathroom break, or to get something to eat.
My needs and wants are defined differently nowI am OK with it. I have looked for happiness and validation in corporate jobs, places to live and other things. I am attending a class at coursera.org and my amazing professor talks about meaning. Employees want to do something meaningful, make a valid contribution towards something.
I am finding more meaning caring for my daughter in my pajamas and a hair style that can’t possibly be duplicated than I ever did while wearing a suit and high heels. I do want some of my wants to be promoted to my needs category 🙂 such as my skin care regimen… subject of another post.
