For starters, I hope you find what you're looking for here. Do you know what you're looking for? I didn't until recently.
I am looking for the opportunity to slow down, enjoy my life, and help you do the same.
My name is Clare and I am a 26 year old mother, wife, and nurse. The most important person in my life is my son, Jack. A close second is my husband, Corey. I've known Corey for over a decade and my son will turn three this September. Life as a mother has made me re-evaluate a lot of things in life, including how I spend my time. I love being a nurse, which you'll read about on this blog. But I think people are all too busy doing things they think they should be doing instead of really thinking about what they want. I am your typical type A.
Picture this. I'm a new mom (will I ever really know what I'm doing!?) working two jobs, trying to be a supportive wife, chasing my toddler, all the while maintaining a 4.0 GPA (hey, they don't call use type A's for nothing) in undergrad and then graduate school. Cue burnout and self loathing. Who was I doing this for?
Honestly, I'm not really sure. I was probably trying to impress myself or other people only because I wasn't really sure who I was or what I wanted in my life. But now I have a clear picture.
Being a mom is wonderful, but also incredibly challenging. Same can be said about maintaining a marriage and trying to find your voice in all the noise. I hope that my content helps you where you're struggling in motherhood, or at least lets you know you're not alone. I hope that I can give you some relationship advice that helps you patch that foundation that got shaken by life. I hope I can share my experiences as a nurse that have helped me appreciate life and all things that come with it.
I hope you find what you're looking for here.
