Over the last few weeks, I have been remembering a place I was in about four to five years ago when I really started writing on this blog, and being more on purpose with reaching out to women who might be feeling down. The main reason I started writing was because I felt down, I felt alone in my struggles, and I felt like there was no hope. When I looked around, there wasn’t much to brighten my day.
Now, I am not talking about not being grateful, because of course I always try to be grateful…even when it’s the little things like running water and heat.
What I am talking about is how LONELY motherhood can be at times. We are this group of women that reaches the billions, and YET we all feel alone in our struggles so often. I felt that often times we sit there and ask, why? Or how do we solve this? But at that time, I just decided not even to go there. That I was just going to act. That I was going to try to spread some hope. To let all women know that they are beautiful, unique, and wonderful. That there is a God out there who molded you in your mothers womb, and that we had worth before our hearts even beat. Because we are his daughters.
Somewhere along the way, I think I got tired, and I lost the drive to keep spreading hope. This tiredness set in because of all of the negativity in the world. The naysayers, the bashers, the offended, those who go right for the jugular, and even those who down right mean well. They all DISCOURAGED me. Wow, I wonder why that is?
I have decided that once again, I DON’T CARE. I don’t care about the WHY, I don’t care about WHO. All I know is that there are still women out there struggling, that are down, and feeling not enough EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And that makes me so darn sad. So I decided to make a trade off in my life that I am so excited about!
More blogging=No Facebook.
You got that right! Me and Facebook broke up and I don’t think we will be getting back together.
So this means you will be hearing from me more regularly again, and I hope you are ready for some serious HOPE to be coming your way.
Here’s to throwing off the chains and trying something new that feels freeing in your life today!
