Who is this person?

Have you ever looked in the mirror one day and thought who is this person. Have you ever walked down the street and saw someone you knew so you turned and walked the other way so they would not see you? Have you looked at a picture and said to yourself is that me? That has been me recently, well the last few months. I dont know if you just get wrapped up into motherhood and you become last or if you just forget to stop and take a minute to take care of you. I know for me I just let life go by and worried about everything around me and not me. I keep telling myself next month I will do that, next month I will buy that. It's been six months now and I am still looking in the mirror and not recognizing who it is I see. A couple of weeks ago I woke up and said it was time that was it I am going to take some time for me again and remember that if I dont take care of myself I cant take care of my kids. Still has not actually gone into effect until the other day. I walked with my head down so no one would recognize me. How can I teach my kids to hold their heads up high if I cant. So today is really the day. I am going to stop wearing my pajama's all day, and stop making excuses why I dont put on my make up, do my hair, or basically just care. Just because I work from home does not mean that I cant look good. I always say, I dont go anywhere, or see anyone. That is the last time I will say that. So if you hear me say it again please stop me. I lack motivation right now and could need all that i can get. Baby steps is what I told myself.. I want to know that girl in the mirror again and like her. Have a great Friday!
