The Woman Behind The Mask~   Leave a comment

Do you ever feel like you aren’t living up to your potential?
Do you ever feel like no one knows the real you?
I contemplate these thoughts quite often of late.

Who am I if not a wife, mother and grandmother?
Who am I standing alone?
Who am I behind the mask?

If there was no one to think about but myself where would I be?
Where would I live?
What would I be doing with myself?

I live in West Liberty Iowa because that is where my husband wants to live.

I wrap my life around my four kids and their families.

My six grand children whom I adore and would never ever want to live without.

But if I woke up tomorrow and it was just me, where would I go and what would I do?

Deep down I want to live a simpler life.

I want to live off the land, live away from civilization

Live in complete oneness with the earth.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not want my life to change in anyway shape or form.

But I sometimes wonder if it was just me where would I be?
Definitely not in West Liberty Iowa

I see myself in Montana or Wyoming or Utah.

living simply
