Three years ago, I started this blog, and it has been an exciting journey so far. The more I write, the more I love writing, and hopefully, the more I improve.
Looking back to my 1st blog post, I decided to rewrite it. Click here to read my 1st blog post and compare.
This is my rewriting of it, now that a lot has changed in my life and in my writings:
It’s important, while on a journey, to look back every once in a while, and see how far you have come. I started this blog because I have a voice. I have thoughts and opinions and feelings and a story to share. I’m a stay at home mom to a 5 year old and I want to reach out to people who are like me and who are different. I want to motivate and inspire, and be motivated and inspired. Motherhood can be so lonely sometimes, and I need that feeling of connection. Humans are social beings that thrive on connection. I have social anxiety and I go through bouts of depression. I’m human and I’m not ashamed about it. Neither should you be. I believe in mental health, respectful parenting, and conservation of the environment.
Now to my feelings. You’d think that after 5 years of doing this, I’d have some experience. Well, theoretically, I do, but applying what I have learned through self help books and podcasts and parenting books and youtube videos and blogs and friend’s advice is not a piece of cake!
Sometimes I still feel like i might go crazy. I have anger management issues now. I’m exhausted most of the time and although I try my best to enjoy my time with my son, sometimes I still don’t feel like playing with him (at least my writing is more organized, sometimes).
Sometimes I feel like I’m a bad mom because I forgot to remind him to brush his teeth or give him his vitamins (he now reminds me of both because I have mom brain now).
I’m writing here for those who can relate (I separate paragraphs and use apostrophes now too). I want to inspire moms to stay strong and whoever feels alone or lonely like i feel sometimes, remember moms are a community and we need to stick together and encourage eachother and advise one another.
I will keep sharing magical moments and exhasperating moments as well that happen with me and my son.
I will also answer questions and give advice and take advice from those who wish to give or recieve it.
Moms are humans. We make mistakes. We learn from them. Most people forget that and expect us to b wonder woman. Also people sometimes judge me on how I raise my son, but I know I’m trying my best and will keep on working on self improvement for myself and for my family.
Another difference between 3 years ago and now is that I published 7 books in the 2 months since we were quarantined (for future generations, we have been quarantined since March 2020 until I don’t know yet).
If you like my writings, please like, comment, and share.
To buy any of my books, click here to go to the post that has the links of my 1st 5 books (I also learned how to include links in my blogs). I will try to add the other 2 soon so that all books can be found in one blog post.
Please share your thoughts and ideas. I am inspired by my readers as well as from my experiences.
My views have also changed dramatically over the last 3 years, as have my number of posts. From 4 posts in 2017 with 12 views during the whole year, to 119 posts with 1,505 views in the 1st 4 months of 2020!
I’m eternally grateful for this platform where I get to express myself and also grow as a person.
So thank you to everyone who took the time to read my blogs and share their feedback. It means the world to me…
