Being present is challenging when you're waiting for something.
Especially when you're waiting for a big something.
Like becoming a mom.
And you have no idea when it's going to happen.
Or even if it's going to happen.
As hard as I try to be in the present moment, to be in the here and now, to enjoy this moment and the next, to live...somehow it just feels like my life is on hold.
I hang out with my husband, go to work, go to the gym, see friends, write, make art, do all of the things that I once did before we decided to adopt, but now I do these things with a sense that I'm missing something.
Every part of me is just aching everyday for that missing piece.
Still...everyday I try to smile, try to be a good wife/daughter/friend, try to do my job, try to take care of my body. And everyday I feel it down to my core. The missing piece.
How can I miss something so much that I've never had?
