I am already anticipating the questions about why I have decided to launch a blog and I figured why not write a post about it!
This blog is something I’ve thought about for a few years now, and I hesitated for many reasons. I didn’t know where to start, I knew nothing about blogging, I had plenty of self doubt, and lack of time to do it the way I wanted to do it. Well, a couple years later I said enough with the excuses and just dove in.
A big reason for launching my blog now is mostly because I find myself in this point in my life as the kids are growing up and I have many days where I feel like I have completely lost who am, outside of being a mom. What are my passions, what brings me joy? This space will be a creative outlet for me to share more of what makes me happy.
So here I am, finally launching this blog. I also felt like I wanted this platform to document memories, vacations and share more inspiration, projects around the house and just all the things that I love. I admire people who are really into hobbies or sports or even reading and I never felt a strong passion about any of those or never felt good one thing in particular. So I’ve created this space for the random things I love. You might see some recipes, some style, family / kid stuff, travel and of course home decor. I don’t have a specific niche and I’m ok with that.
I’m so happy I got the courage, found some help and got rid of the excuses and simply made it happen. I put aside the fear of what people would think, and the self doubt. These ideas that were going through my head made me realize how much self doubt I have and then it led me down this path of “who even am I?” and how did I get here? Mom life is busy for sure but I’m excited and happy to be doing this now.
If you ever find yourself wanting to do something but come up with reasons NOT to do that something, turn that list into all your reasons WHY you should be doing it NOW and not waiting for the right time. Don’t be afraid. It doesn’t need to be perfect, it is a work in progress.
So here it is, I may or may not post super consistently – who knows, maybe I will surprise myself! I am certainly no writer. My grammar is the shits. But here I am and this space is mine. I want to share bits and parts of our lives in hopes of connecting with other moms, women and people who are on this same path or have similar interests.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
