The 5 week challenge – 1/25

Today I am starting something new, something I have never tried before. I am taking 5 weeks off from my every day life in the attempt to find my silver lining – inner peace – what makes me happy.

Lately I have found myself in a state of fog where I feel that something is missing or something is just not right. Ever felt like that?

I need to figure out what to do with my life, besides being a mother and wife. On paper I had it all, a husband, children, a home to call my own and a steady job. I still have those things minus the job, which I quit last year. I was on maternity leave with my second child and something told me to get of the hamster wheel in order to start living the life that I really want. To be honest I couldn’t see myself sending my children of to daycare all day whilst I was sitting at a desk doing a job that I didn’t find made a difference and that made me sick with stress so I decided it was time to close that door and start focusing on making myself happy in order to be the best mother and wife – and also to be in a better relationship with myself.

So I spend the next months applying for other jobs and trying to figure it all out in what to do, but I have come to the conclusion that I can’t figure it out or plan what to do next, so I have decided to give myself 5 weeks to try to find my silver lining and to make myself happy again. So what would you do if you, within certain financial and time limits, could do what you wanted? And would it make you happier? I guess time will tell when the 5 weeks are up.

My aim and purpose of this blog is to document what I’m doing everyday to find my silver lining and to have somewhere to put down my thoughts on things – life 🙂
