Do you ever just meet those people who change your entire perspective on life? Or that person that is the younger version of you. The “you” that you thought you were going to be, but life circumstances changed that? They just light a fire in you because you know you can do what you’ve always wanted to do, but maybe were just too afraid or lacked the confidence it took to actually do it.
Sometimes we just need someone to believe in us for five minutes. I think sometimes we just build things up to be something that they aren’t. Something that is impossible. At the end of the day, we are just people all trying to be the person we thought we were going to be when we were five years old. Even though that image always feels and seems unattainable, and the older you get the more impossible it feels, it’s really not.
So here’s the reason I started this blog in the first place. I met that person. The younger version of who I was supposed to be. I asked her about a billion questions, and she gave me back my dream. She gave me the confidence I needed, and the one thing she said that I needed to do was start a blog. I told her I had no idea what I would write about. I mean I’ve been a stay at home mom for SEVEN years. Am I just going to tell the world how many diapers I changed today? What meals I made? How many times I stepped on a Lego, or how many fights I broke up?
In those seven years, I really lost myself.
Someone asked me, not too long ago, what my favorite food was. I didn’t even know what to say. I didn’t know what my favorite anything was because everything I did everyday for the last seven years was to make sure I was the perfect wife and mother that I didn’t do anything for myself. So here’s to finding myself. Here’s to the start of new things. A new blog. A fresh start. ❤
