Feeling disconnected...

So I've always wanted to be the kind of person who is always present. Spontanaity, Inspiration, and leaving my mark have always been very important to me. I don't feel like I've gotten it right yet. I try to do something that I love everyday, and try to do numerous things my daughter will enjoy (she is 2)... I try to be a good mother, wife, daughter, grandaughter, sister, etc... but I feel like I am not getting it. I feel like when I am in a group situation, I go with the flow... and I am always going with someone else's flow... How do I take control of my own life, and be as "present" as I am trying to be?

  • I suggest one of two books, maybe even both that are on this subject.
    1. Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren
    2. Cure for the COmmon Life, Max Lucado

  • Maybe you are trying too hard. Try relaxing and just enjoying life and the connection may manifest.

  • i feel the same way. While maybe i do go with someones else's flow in group activities i try to make my home my domaine and make an incredible impression on my daughter. We laugh sing play silly games i make up and when we do play dates at my house people are very suprised by my assertiveness. Sometimes being in a place you are more comfortable makes you stand out more. Eventually i have ideas in how to bring the 'at home' me into the 'group date at the park' me. :) i figure one day they will merge and it'll be okay if it takes time.
