One of the biggest struggles I have as a Mom is that I don’t have a tribe. Currently, I don’t really have any local Mom friends. I have a few acquaintances here, but I certainly don’t have a good girlfriend.
You see, being a military spouse, I move around the country a lot. To give you an idea of how often we have moved over the past few years, my 4 year has lived in 4 different states. Every time I’ve moved, it didn’t take me long to find my people…until we moved here.
I don’t know if it’s the fact that I have two kids this time or what, but I’ve had a hard time connecting with other Mothers here.
When I think about it though, I’m not really trying all that hard. I meet Moms every day at the park, library, and grocery store that are super nice, but I just haven’t taken that step to become friends with them.
When I saw this video last week, I got inspired. So, I’m planning on asking this awesome Mom I’ve run into at preschool drop off if she’d like to do lunch one afternoon.
I’m nervous…but it’s time.
I hope that if you’re a lonely Mama like me, that this quick and funny video inspires you to reach out.
Help me out! How do you meet new Mom Friends? Apparently, I can use all the help I can get!
