Carpe Diem!

Posted by Mattie on Apr 11, 2013 in Womanhood |

I used to play guitar when I was in elementary school, but I quit, like most kids do. I regretted that decision for a very long time.

I always envied people who could play the guitar. I wanted to get back to it, but I was busy partying in my 20’s. Raising children in my 30’s. Driving everyone around and being supportive made me think.  Why not me?

6 months ago, I was walking through Costco and I saw this guitar for sale. It was a good deal.  I bought it. I noodled for a few months. Took some lessons on the Internet. I liked it. I never realized how much I missed it.

Spending all that money on music lessons for my children, I decided it was my turn. I started guitar lessons. Of course it’s hard work trying to find the time to practise. But, I love it.

Mothers put their heart and soul into their children. And, that is what they need. But mothers also need to care of themselves. Find what you love to do and do it. Even if it is only 15 minutes a day. Next month it will be 20. When you love to do something you will gravitate to it.

Let yourself be a person and not just a mother. I believe the happier person you are, the better mother will be. Carpe Diem.
