Exposed Day 20, More than Your Titles

You are so much more than your titles…

Whether that be the title you hold in your career, or the titles of mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, etc.

Who you are is so much more than that.

After my divorce almost 10 years ago, when the title of wife fell away and I started to have time without my kids for the first time, I felt completely lost.

I never had to think about who I was outside of those roles since I had been raising kids from the age of 17 (more on that story soon).

Being a wife and a mom always took precedence over everything else.

And for the first time I was faced with the question of who Mimi was..

What were MY passions, hobbies, goals? What did I want my life to look like – for me?

Over the years since then I have been able to explore and discover those things for myself and it has become such a treasure.

It’s one of the things that I hope for all women.

As we are the givers and caretakers in so many areas of our lives that we can lose ourselves, and sometimes never even know who we are outside of those roles.

So often we put ourselves last and we suffer, sometimes until it’s too late, until health issues start to arise, or until we’ve hit some sort of bottom.

But I urge all women to step outside of those roles as much as possible and discover themselves.

Take time for yourself, do things that feel good and nourish yourself.

Because the harsh truth is that the role(s) that you currently have and prioritize above all else will end. Everything always does.

And while those roles will likely evolve, at the end of the day, you will always be left with YOU.

The one relationship that can never be taken away is the one that you have with yourself.

So go on,

start prioritizing her

honoring her

getting to know her

defining her on your own terms

She/you are so worth it.
