I finally got to around to watching "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2." I was excited about it because I really enjoyed the first one. I come from a very large extended family and although my family is not Greek and I am not first generation American, we are still new enough to the United States historically that I could see my family in many of the scenes.
In one scene Aunt Voula tells Toula to remember that she was a girlfriend before she was a mother. That got me to thinking. Sometimes we get lost in all of the roles that we take on as we grow up. No matter how much we love the role(s) we're getting lost in, I think it is important to continue to evaluate how we wear our hats to make sure that we are the "me" we want to be. Not a selfish "me", but a "me" that includes a blend of all of our roles...easier said than done, I know! :)
I can't forget that before I wore many of these hats, I was me. In order to succeed in my other roles I need to take care of myself too. This is a tough one because many of my other hats are more precious to me. I think many can relate to this.
