Yesterday, I wrote a post called Are You a Good Enough Mother? At the start, I asked:
Have you ever had one of those moments where you doubt yourself, wonder what is happening, and question whether you are a good enough mother/parent/adult/human?
I explained that I am working on taking the words of Rene Syler, aka the head GEM/Good Enough Mother to task.
Now, thanks to Rene and some Rene-isms (also listed in my post yesterday), I have a lot of things on my mind, planned for my blog, and more importantly ideas for my life. The first is to be able to accept that nobody is perfect and know that being a good enough mother is awesome. Oh and thanks to a comment from Rene, I have another Rene-ism to add:
“You may not have all the answers, but you’re smart enough to figure it out.”
I know this statement from Rene is true, it’s just hard to sit by, be patient, and get those answers figured out – especially when your children are involved.
Today, my Aloha Friday question continues along with my quest to bring you along on my journey as I embrace my inner GEM and work on reinventing myself. The reality is that most of us do reinvent ourselves at least once in our lives. So my question to you:
If you had the chance to reinvent yourself right now, what would you want to do and why?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
All the experiences I had have made me what I am today. There’s a lot I’d like to change however, I’m happy, content and still have a lot of growing to do. So, I’ll get back with you on this one! ;D

I wouldn’t change anything. I might not like things as much as I do now.

The only thing hubby and I were talking about recently is it would be cool if we could turn the clock back 20 years – but have everything as it is right now (house, kids, pets, etc.) exactly the same as it is right now. :)
Aloha: April Fools!

I’m actually at peace with my self knowing that I am who I am and that’s okay :)
Enjoy your Friday!
If I could reinvent myself right now, I’d make myself more able to talk about how I’m feeling without sounding like I’m heaping blame on everyone else. (See my blog post about how I handle stress.)
I guess because I am in my mid 40’s, I can see so many changes I could have made. Would I be in this very place if I had…probably not and I am happy here. But I think I would of avoided all the pain of a bad relationship and made wiser choices in my career!

If I could reinvent myself, I would make myself more outgoing and have more confidence. I really wouldn’t want to change anything else about my life.

If I had the chance to reinvent myself I’d hope to be a business woman and psychologist.
And I’d be more social!

I don’t want to reinvent myself. I think I have gone to that place where I have already reconciled with how I look and how my life is. And the fact is, I really love my life! My life’s a charm! The only thing is I wish I can do more for my mother and siblings in the Philippines – help them, get to see them more …
hmmm… I probably would want a better front teeth! haha… aside from that I am happy with who I am and what I have become… many painful experiences but I came out stronger. As a mom, I give my best to be the best that I can be… AND I am writing letters to my kids so that when they grow up, they’ll realize how much I love them!
please take a peek and share your wisdom in any of my posts, it’ll be very much appreciated.

I don’t think I would change anything… I believe that everything happens for a reason! I am who I am because of the past!
