The Love of a Bohemian Mama

The Love of a Bohemian Mama: Love You!



When I became a Mom everything in my life became secondary to the care and needs of my boys. I went from being an independent career driven woman in pursuit of my goals, to a stay at home Mom responsible for creating and nurturing the dreams of my children. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade this life for the last; but something was lost in the process. It was a loss of a sense of self. 

The feeling of not knowing who you are or what you believe or where you are going anymore, is incredibly challenging and ultimately, depressing; and not just for me, but for my family. I strongly believe that I am a better Mom, wife, friend, and daughter, if I am able to find the time to listen to my inner voice and honor me and all that makes me who I am! 

I believe it is important to always remember to Love you, and take care of you! Honor your inner voice. Celebrate your unique talents. Make connections with others that inspire you and love you for who you are as a person, not just as a "so and so's" Mom. 

Creating this blog has become my way to Love me! It has opened doors of creativity, inspiration, and connection. I am forever grateful to my inner voice that whispered to me one day: "Psst, start writing again. Start a blog." So, what ever it may be for you, I hope you find it or are taking the time to honor it! Love You! And always remember:

  3. My mom worked like mad when we were very young, and we were raised my five parents-my mom and dad, a shared nanny and the parents of the girl (and ultimately my best friend) who my parents shared the costs of a live-in nanny with. Eventually I insisted that my mom be at home with us (I was pretty demanding, even at 5), and so she became a stay at home mom. I know it wasn't easy on her, but when she found things she loved (her pottery classes, the non-profit she founded to save arts programs in my school), she was the very best parent to us. I know your little guys feel the same way, too.

  4. wow. Really needed to hear this. You put into words so many things I couldn't, or wouldn't. I think in so many ways I felt guilty for feeling like I was sad at who I wasn't anymore..I felt like I am not supposed to miss who I was, since I am a mom now.
    Thx for this!
