Looking for Something?

Excited to be starting this blog!


Parenting imageHi there. My name is Flora and I’m excited to start this blog in order to share my challenges and maybe a few insights as I am on this adventure of being a “new mom”.  My son just turned 1, and I’m “just a stay at home mom”.  When I say that I actually mean that I am just beginning to give myself permission to JUST be a stay-at-home mom.  As a licensed professional counselor I have spent my 20’s and early 30’s working as a young professional. When I had my son my heart really wanted to completely be 100% with him, but over time I realized it was a struggle to let go of my “working” self.  It’s really my ego that has a hard time letting go of what I had created in my career.  Luckily I know I can jump back into my profession down the road when I want to (and I know not every woman has that luxury as easily in their professions). So, I am trying to really let go of the few part-time jobs I had held onto, and each day give myself more and more permission to “just” be a stay-at-home mom. P.s. those of you who are at-home moms know there is no “just” about it. I am with you. So, let’s support each other in this wild ride. 🙂
