Hey Mama. This is Mama’s daily dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mamas Daily Dose is… “who are you for
Happy Monday, y’all. This is a nice deep one to get you thinking on this Monday. So there’s this new video that’s come out. It’s gone quite viral on tik tok from @the_holistic_mystic, and I’ll link it in the show notes as well. But basically, it asked the question, “what is that flip of the switch moment that changed your life.”
And he goes on to say, you know, he just he wants to be a better person. He wants to be a better employee, a better husband, a better father, a better friend. And his therapist then says to him, “an employee is someone you are for your employer, a husband is someone you are for your wife, a father is someone you are for your son, and a friend is someone you are for a friend, who are you for yourself, who are you outside of those roles.”
And I don’t know about y’all, but that hits deep. I even for me, I’m a person that always says you don’t need to be everything for everyone. But you need to be something for yourself. But when we go to describe ourselves, you know, it’s like, “oh, I’m Anderson and Saxon’s Mom, I’m a wife to Tyler…” And these are all roles that I am for other people. And while they are great roles, and they are a part of me, that’s not who I am. So who is Meghan outside of these roles, and at nearly 35 years old, in a couple of weeks, I feel like I’m now just taking those steps to really figure this out of who I am outside of these roles, because I feel like through life, we are so defined by our roles, you know, you’re a sister, a daughter, a student, a doctor, a marketer, whatever it is that your job title is… a mom that is the biggest defining one for us with small children. I feel like this year I’m getting into that groove of defining and creating who I am outside of these roles. And that is exactly why I started All You Mama and this podcast so that I can give what I have to others and have a role that I’ve created for myself.
So on this lovely Monday, take a think about who are you for yourself, who are you outside of all those roles and titles that you hold? check out that video in the show notes. I feel like it hits even more. Just watching him say the words and you can really feel it and just have a beautiful Monday and a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
