So after years of what seemed like full-time freelance work and being able to make my own hours, I accepted a position at an office. It’s been super exciting but very exhausting. I forgot what it was like to work long, set hours. I have a new-found respect for my own mom. At the same time I understand why she did it. I was beginning to lose my identity. I was no longer me, I was just MOM. Now I’m me and also mom.
