i’m a worrywoman

I get called lots of names – Wonder Woman, SuperMum just to name a couple.  I get compared to Sarah Jessica Parker in that film Everything She Wants…it’s because on the outside people see me as being able to do everything and anything. Juggle a career with three very active young children, run a household with a supporting and successful husband and still manage to smile and not look like I have been dragged through a bush backwards.

But perception is not always reality and whilst things may look pretty serene and organised on the outside the truth is pretty different.

I am a worrywoman, one of many who spend most of their time in turmoil worrying about anything and everything.  Only my husband and the very closest of my girlfriends know how I am truly feeling most of the time.  They are also the ones who sometimes have to pick me up when the worry just gets too much.  I know I can not be the only one who doesnt just worry about their kids, and I don’t think you need to be a Mum to be a worrywoman.

So as part of my personal journey to try to reduce my constant worry, to get rid of some of my stress, I am trying to take my internal monologue external and share with those others who are worrywomen. Even if it just makes me feel like I spend a little less time creating internal conflict with myself by writing about it…then that makes me feel like I have accomplished something. But I would really love to create a community of worrywomen to help us all feel a little less stressed, a little less silly, a little less worried…
