First Time Outsider

9

August 7, 2013 by Katia

I’ve always felt like I don’t belong, which is probably why I moved continents one day, to give that feeling an official reason… I’ve never, however, been an outsider until I became one for a brief moment.

I wrote a post about this, which is featured on one of my absolutely favourite blogs, Finding Ninee, today. My hilarious friend Kristi, the powerhouse behind Finding Ninee, brilliantly describes and illustrates life “in the middle world” with Tucker, her 4 Year Old son. A few months ago Kristi wrote a post titled “A Land of Empathy and Wonder” and the post became a series, Our Land. My post on Kristi’s blog today is part of that series.

    Loved, loved, loved. I rambled a bit over there, so I’ll keep it short here.

Tired. Going from 10 months of staying at home with the kids to full time work is disorienting.  I have to redefine what my involvement in their lives looks like. I have to go dig for my creativity, it's not readily available. I have to make room for friendships that were already pushed to the outskirts of my mommy life. What was previously inaccessible, existing in the "so near yet so far" category - books, blazers and heels - became a staple in this old new reality in a matter of days. Tired and disoriented but also content, supported and appreciative. #momsofinstagram #random #randomthoughts #changes #workingmom #tired #tgif
