This may be my new mantra in life.
I think to some degree I’ve always known I wanted to be in one way or another a writer. I’ve always been drawn to it even as a child. I love words in general and I love when people put their thoughts out there and let you see a little glimpse of who they are. It’s one of those things that I just never thought I was talented or good enough to do.
If you’ve ever met me you know that I have a pretty good level of self-esteem and confidence. So this seems contradictory to who I am. You can ask my husband who will attest to the fact that I’ve started many projects with an ‘I can do this!’ attitude only to realize half way through that I may in fact NOT be able to do this. So I think this was where my hesitation lied.
I’ve been on a self journey of sorts recently to do things I love, that I find to be fulfilling, and most importantly share it all with those I love. What does this have to do with a blog? Well I’ve had a few people tell me I should start one. I believe as women we should be building a strong community of supporting each other. I think many of us feel alone sometimes in what we are going through. Especially mothers. I want this to be a safe space for women to get a does of honesty from another woman about things that matter to us. I want women to feel inspired, know that they’re not alone in the messes life brings, and more importantly leave with a little extra self confidence. Don’t worry though, I’ll still cover less serious topics and have a little fun. I love a bit of glam and pampering yourself. Sarcasm and the occasional bad word will also be peppered throughout. So you’ve been warned ahead of time. (If you don’t swear, God Bless, but I do.)
I hope to inspire other women to ‘just jump’ with me and I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I’ll enjoy writing it!
