Lately, I've been in a funk.
I've been so focused on contributing monetarily to our household,
I've sort of forgotten about the job I already hold in our little family.
The job of being a wife.
(And a dog-mom, too, but Yoshi and Dobby
definitely don't let me forget about that job.)
I don't just mean that I've been slacking on the housekeeping
(although, let's be honest, I have been) but I haven't been
a very good partner or best friend lately, either. I've been selfish, spending
all of my time working on my own endeavors.
I've been asking for a lot of favors from Ryan
(Come with me on this photo shoot? Let me buy this website?
Take me to get Mexican and ice cream when I get stressed out?)
and I haven't been giving much back in return.
If this were any other job, I'd probably get fired.
Or at least I'd get a pay cut (don't even think about it, Ryan
...I need that monthly allowance to buy more boots, obviously).
It's important to me that I go after the things I want and work to achieve my goals,
sometimes I just need a reminder that one of those things I wanted the most
I already have, and I need to give that job the attention it deserves, too.
