We are moms who have lost our identities in motherhood. We are searching for the woman we were before becoming moms.
At My Place, we can share, commiserate, laugh, cry, eat, learn, create, meditate, and most importantly we can take a time out from the day to day pressures of motherhood. My Place is a place to celebrate and promote self-care in an effort to combat burn out associated with anxiety, depression, and isolation.
THE STORY OF MY PLACE BUFFALO
Each morning you wake up and immediately your mind is spinning with the unlimited number of things you need to accomplish today. Work out, feed everyone, get everyone dressed, get everyone out the door, do your day job, along with the dishes, laundry, family scheduling, mail sorting, tidying, and then on top of that, be the emotional support for everyone around you. You are superhuman, and you can do it all; but sometimes you need a break.
There it is, the time comes, you have found the time to escape, and take some time for you! You spend some of this coveted time trying to decide what to do with it. You consider messaging a friend to see if they are available, and then you realize, your friends are just as busy as you are. You’re not going to let anything stand in your way of getting out of the house though, now is your chance! You hop in the car, start it up, and…. find yourself someplace like Target.
Don’t get me wrong, we love ‘Target’, but ladies, ‘Target’ is not a break. ‘Target’ is money spent that doesn’t need to be. ‘Target’, inevitably, turns into another chore, “Do we need diapers? Dog food? Bananas? Creamer?” At the end of the day, we still haven’t connected with ourselves, or anyone else.
Sound familiar? If you can relate, My Place Buffalo is for you! My Place is the place to go, to take a time-out that’s designed for you!
