What is 'my thing'?
I really feel as though something is lacking in my life, I'm searching and searching for that thing that defines me. I guess I always thought it would be, being a mother. I know in many respects it's not a great thing to define you either - as a friend once said to me - why is something the vast majority of people do seen as being so special? (She has children). Yet being a mother is quite socially acceptable as a thing to define you. As I've probably said here before - I never wanted to be a career woman, so I really don't want my work/job/career to define me. So what else is there.....Maybe I'm not going to have one big thing in my life that says - Here I am, look what I've achieved. I think that concerns me, I feel the need to have something I'm proud of, something I've achieved, something tangible the world can see. I would love to hear from other childless women about what they believe defines them, their thoughts on this subject and just the important things in their life that 'replace children'.
