Tales of a stay-at-home/create-from-home mum– Part 2.
In celebration of International Women’s Day.
It has taken me most of my 34 years on this planet to be able to side with the ideals of traditional womanhood. I’m not a trad wife. I don’t bake my own sourdough regularly. I don’t preserve cucumbers and make fancy pickles. I write every afternoon after my husband gets home and before I cook dinner. We travel the world, living unconventionally but still together. When I say ‘traditional womanhood’, I don’t mean that my life resembles something of a 1950’s homestead. I mean that God has sprayed away all of the desires that were causing me internal conflict. He has simplified my direction.
Many women fall into the same category as me:
The stay at home/create from home mum.
I’m with my kids. They’re with me.
Also, I have some space to create.
The sweet spot, when it’s all going smoothly of course.
Many people have asked me questions about my motherhood/creativity flow. I get to it in this entry.
