In this day and age it seems as though everyone is self proclaimed model, or a blogger. Since I can’t cut it is a model, I’ll go ahead and jump on with the rest of the bloggers out there.
I’ve always toyed with the idea of sharing my thoughts, likes/dislikes and passions with others through these great blogging platforms that are out there now. I’ll admit, I’ve attempted to start a blog a time or two already and have fallen off the horse. I think the main reason why I haven’t stuck with it is my fear of being judged by the outside world, or worse….by my friends and family.
Now I’m finally at the point in my life where I feel sure of myself on most days, and I’m pretty confident in my own skin. A lot of that has to do with the little girl I give birth to last year. She makes me want to be the best version of myself.
Being a mom has given me the courage to look within and ask the tough questions. Over the past year and a half I’ve dealt with anxiety, stress, happiness and an overwhelming amount of love. I realize I’m not the first mom to be saying these things, but this is the first time I’m talking about it with others.
My hope for starting to write again and share my thoughts is that others feel brave enough to take on something that they were scared to pursue – a big career move, a new workout, a recipe….you name it. I also would love to think that other people like me will enjoy reading about my everyday adventures as a young mother navigating my way through parenthood, while trying to maintain my sense of self.
Here’s to the beginning! There couldn’t be a better time than now.
