Hey, world. It’s me. The owner of this blog. Hi *shy wave*.
I’m not new to this blogging thing – I used to blog lots when I was a teenager lolol (ever heard of Xanga?!). Back then, though, blogging was just to express your thoughts and feelings and to air out all the things (to passive aggressively attack your arch enemy in public). I guess things change – like your perspective on life – as you grow up and grow older, get married, and have kids. I’m now blogging to hopefully help somebody out in some way, instead of blogging to process stuff in my head. I’m blogging to let someone know they’re not alone in this journey of motherhood, and, in all honesty, I’m blogging to remind myself that I’m not alone in this journey of motherhood. Because… what (the heck) is motherhood? Sometimes most times, I don’t know. But I’m learning and discovering a little more every day – by the grace of Jesus who knows I need grace every minute!
So one thing I want to be sure of, is that every post of mine is real, honest, and shines light on Christ in some way. That doesn’t mean every post is a sermon, but I want you to know that Jesus is first in my life and I hope you see the heart behind these words.
To tell you the truth, I’ve been hesitant about taking this blog seriously because I don’t wanna be another “mommy blogger”… even though this technically makes me one. Darn. But I won’t be sharing things just to talk about myself or my family. I want to give you something to laugh about, ponder about, and pray about. I’ve always been a hard worker – I hardly ever called in sick – I might even be categorized as a workaholic, but being a mom is the hardest job I’ve undertaken, and I am constantly feeling wiped out. I want to call in sick (or book a flight far far away…) all the time, but I can’t. I’ll be a mom til the day I die, and until then I want to be the best mom I can be for these little humans.
So this space here is really just another mom journeying through the craziness of motherhood – the Christian millennial way. Which really just means I’m trying to parent with the same principles that I grew up with, just doing it in different ways, I suppose. And man, is it hard, especially with a million pressures telling us what to do, what not to do, how to think, what not to think, what to say, when to say, how to say it… Amirite?!
Anyway, before I actually do start preaching here, I’ll just provide this link to you if you wanted to know more about me and my little family.
I hope this blog uplifts somebody, educates somebody, and humours somebody – in a good way! 😉
Drop a line to say hello if you’ve stopped by!
