I have opened the door wide into my role as a mother. But I’m getting a lot of questions about me. I thought it would help to take as a second and introduce who I am outside of motherhood.
I am a hopeful dreamer and finally proud of it. I turn 30 in February and realized this year that I was sitting silent and afraid to be myself. I let people have more rights over my thoughts and actions that I should have. I felt diminished and hopeless, which is outside of my character. The problem wasn’t in others but in myself, I had lost any dreams I had outside of my children.
It is absolutely rewarding every day to be a mother. But I am more than that as well. I started this blog because I plan to join National Novel Writing Month in November and wanted to get into practice. As the opportunity to grow my voice grew I realized I needed to share our story.
I believe that every person is capable. I believe in building up other people. I believe the world is made better when we improve ourselves. I am absolutely passionate about the things I do. I work all day around my children’s needs to help others, to grow myself, and to share this vision.
Once I realized I could have dreams, that I could just go out and live them, it hasn’t stopped. Everyday I imagine more possibilities and a new world. I want to take the fear and angry and change it to something beautiful and share that. I want to reach through to other moms and help them find their magic. I want to live in a world where we contribute positively and help one another.
Even if I only inspire one person, that person will inspire someone else, it grows. Even if I fail spectacularly, I will have learned along the journey. I see no reason why everyone can’t go out right now and fulfill a personal dream. The worst that can happen is that you don’t fulfill that dream but you weren’t before you started. Stop waiting.
You are valuable. You have a voice. You deserve a fulfilling life. You are cherished. You are capable.
