I have fallen off the grid, at least in the blogging world. Besides my social media profiles, you all must have thought I quit.
And to be perfectly honest, I did quit. I took a break to live and enjoy life, recover from my surgery, and build some other fantastic opportunities that have been presenting themselves these days.
I am making the moments in my life count without constantly sharing it with everyone- a weird concept in the world we live in today, huh?
But, you all know that I love writing, sharing, and trying to inspire people.
So coming back with the intentions of writing things that can truly inspire women, especially moms, is and always has been my main mission.
Sharing life with a community of women that I not only uplift, but can inspire and empower me is as equally important.
Everyday I go through the struggles that every parent does. We manage to get up and start our day with good intentions that we will have just one day that goes exactly like we planned. One day that works in our favor.
Someday’s the struggle is so real that it becomes overwhelming.
The struggle to get to work on time without your child or children having a breakdown.
The struggle to have enough energy to make it through even the easiest tasks in your day.
Or the struggle to decide what is best for your kiddos, all the while putting yourself last and others judging you in the process.
Now, please remember, I would not change any of this, I love my child with all of my being. But just one day, I would like to feel like I wasn’t struggling.
So today, I started to remember why I started this community and how my voice, no matter how small it might be, can change and inspire people. It can help those that are struggling some days too.
Taking this time away has made me step back and see how I can truly serve others, and help them in their journeys. Give them a little inspiration and help along the way.
I am excited to share with you all the fun things in store for 2015.
Most importantly, every day, do my best to inspire you to breath through the struggles, celebrate when we need to, and make life beautiful.
Thank you for reminding me why I started this, and who I started it for.
