When do you feel at most like yourself? Do you think 2018 will be different? I’m not quite sure to be honest. I feel very much like myself whenever I am with the kids, doing mom stuff. Talking with them about their day, making dinner, and eating on the floor. We have a very relaxed household, and for me it’s the same manner as playing the role as a mother.
I also feel very true to myself whenever I can go out and have fun. That break-time when I don’t have the kids, I like to spend time prepping myself for a fun night out. There is a fine balance between the two, as if they complete each other. I enjoy each situation more, when I can balance the two equally.
The new year I hope to continue feeling true to myself at every given time whether with my kids doing mom stuff or when I go out and have fun. Dressing up and transforming from simple to more creative makeup concepts is very dear and makes me feel good about myself.
How do you apply your identity and ways of being yourself, to your kids? Being yourself is all about authenticity and individuality. I try to teach my kids that being yourself and staying true to who you are is more fulfilling than being somewhat of a follower. To me, a lot about being yourself is also where you come from. My children speak American, I am; however, Greek. I try my best to teach them about my own culture, spending month long vacations in Athens, and keeping jars of Greek sand in my house is a way of doing that.
