Going through my Instagram feed, I noticed that it’s been invaded by pictures and videos of our baby girl or something related to motherhood. Nothing wrong with that, I know. But it made me realize that I miss ME.
I am not just a mother. I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a niece, an aunt, a friend, a technical support specialist, an Atenean, isang Iskolar ng Bayan, a fighter, a Superwoman.
I am a lot of things rolled into one tiny package.
So I made a promise to myself, that I will not forget who I am. I started with my Instagram feed. Post at least one photo each day that’s totally unrelated to motherhood and reflects my thoughts or feelings that day, or represents a part of me.
Sounds simple enough. Just a little step to remind me that I am Me.
