Are you still writing? How’s the blog? What have you published lately?
To all those that have asked, or have thought to ask, the answer is: nothing.
Actually, that’s not quite true. I do write… a lot in fact. I’m just not sharing. I’ve been keeping my words to myself, my ideas for conversations and my blog untouched. The reasons are multitude and I could begin to list them but I’ve recently realized that they are merely excuses. Truth is, I worry how my thoughts will be judged and feel guilt when I add another “selfish” thing to my plate that would pull me away from spending more devoted time with my children.
Oh yes, since I last posted, I had another child. We are officially a family of four: Marko, Helena, myself and the hubs.
So, no more excuses. No more guilt. I’m a stronger mother when I am true to my wants and needs. When I put myself first (not everyone else first!), I can be the most rockin mom I WANT to be. Will things be perfect? Absolutely not. Is that ok? Absolutely. “I am the creator of my destiny, not the manager of circumstance” is a quote i recently heard at a Tony Robbins’ Power of Success event and it hit a chord with me. I don’t have to struggle to stay afloat as a working mother of two. I can thrive. I can build the best situation for me in the circumstance I find myself in.
So here we are. A mommy blog. A wifey blog. A woman’s blog about all things lifestyle and home. A foodie blog cause who doesn’t like to eat? But above all, this will be a blog about growth and taking life by the balls. I hope I inspire you along the way 😉
