Remembering your awesomeness

We all have them…those boxes kept up in the loft or the back of a cupboard, filled with memorabilia from our childhood or a previous relationship. I have one such box which I stumbled upon a few days. It’s a box I haven’t opened in a long while and so was actually quite taken aback by how much was in it.

The letters and cards so obviously from a much more youthful time. It was nice for a few moments to go back in time and reminisce. Without wanting to sound completely narcissistic, it was actually a pleasure to read some of the letters and remember what the writer thought of me and the person they saw, when they saw me.

Like most SAHM’s, I go through phases of feeling completely useless. Of course in reality I know how much I do for S and how much I enjoy being there for all his firsts but that’s the thing…it’s all about him. We tend to get so caught up in making our children happy that we sometimes lose ourselves. We forget what awesome people we were (are) before our “little world’s” came into our lives. And when you go through a break up, you forget even more, because no one was telling you.

So for 10 minutes I went back in time and was reminded of who I am, what I am capable of and the difference I make in people’s lives. It was a nice feeling…you should try it sometime 🙂

  1. I have a box like this in the loft, one full of memories of almost a previous life, one before marriage and kids. Ticket stubs, cards, letters, postcards and other things picked up in times gone by. It’s always lovely to look at the things in that box although I haven’t done for a few years now. Thanks for linking up x

  2. Ah what a lovely post. I have a box like this full of memories and I love to look back on them too. It’s nice to take a trip down memory lane every now and again. x
