The motherhood journey can often make you feel like a passenger in your own life. Everybody around you is steering you in all directions without any clear destination in sight. I guess you have to just continue on the journey in the hope that one day you’ll be back behind the steering wheel.

However, giving yourself solely to your family can leave little time or energy to explore and realise your own personal ambitions. It may even get to the point where prioritising your family’s needs above your own becomes easier as looking inwards only invokes feelings of confusion.
What do I want should be as valid a question as what does my family need?
