Tuesday September 3 – Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places and/or the factors that make up who you are.
Ohh first prompt of Blogtember , how exciting. Hopefully I will last the distance and still this excitable on the last day.
When thinking on who I am I do get a bit confused. You see I am a single mum to two teenagers so to start off this makes me a mum. But I don’t feel very mumsy. In my head I am still in my twenties or thirties not hurtling through my forties by the seat of my pants. I know I look mumsy and this troubles me as I don’t look like I want to feel.
I have had the normal upbringing; well it’s normal to me as I don’t know any different. Born, adopted at a month old, moved to sunny Cornwall, went through school, left home very young , started working, found birth parents, had a ball, had a baby, a marriage, another baby, a divorce and then 10 years as a single mum with various chaps along the way. One chap did manage to understand me and put up with me enough to stick around but were adults and neither of us that keen on giving up our own space so we live an unconventional life of not living together. ( so yes I am still a single parent as its moi doing all the parental stuff )
So that’s me in a nut shell really. But I am more than all that. I have been through enough things to realise I was and am way stronger emotional and mentally then I ever had given myself credit for. I have learnt that money isn’t everything and a positive life is far better than angry and negative one.
I wouldn’t change a single thing either as every person and every situation has made me who I am today. I may never be rich, I may never own my own home, I may never have enough money to have foreign holidays but I do have enough in my life to make me smile every day.
