A Mom Blog Social Network
Yes, I have done it … I am guilty! I am THAT person who created a blog, wrote a few posts and then disappeared into my everyday life. I am extremely happy to say that I am indeed back, and I am going to continue to write at LEAST two posts every week because writing is what I really love to do! You are probably wondering what is up with the random image of the fireworks above? It’s Christmas right, not the 4th of July?!?! Well, I feel like the picture above represents exactly how I feel. I have so many ideas, thoughts and feelings I want to share, and I feel like a firework right now (cue Katy Perry’s “Firework,” haha)!
So, this post poses a question for everyone … why do we let go so easily things we love to do? Yes, our lives get extremely busy, but we’ve got to find time to give to ourselves. Giving to ourselves is the only way we don’t lose ourselves in the chaos of everyday life. Life can be full of regrets, but almost all of those regrets you could have controlled, right?
Eight years ago, I set my sights on Nashville. I was determined I was going to be an Entertainment PR Maven, and you know what, I did what I set out to do. Yeah, I didn’t go all the way to the top, and after six years I left it behind to move closer to my family after becoming a single mommy. But, I did do something I wanted to do SO badly and that so many people dream of doing. I can still achieve my dreams, but I have to achieve my dreams a little differently because I now have a little person to think about and she will always come first! One of my dreams is to write a book. I have the idea for the book, I just need to put pen to paper or these days, fingers to keys. I have a cousin who writes books for children, and she is now on her third book. She did it, so it feels very attainable to me.
But, again, until I can get that book going, I am going to continue to write and love on this blog, and it’s not going to be neglected any longer. I may only have three people really reading it, but like I’ve said before, that is okay with me because I’m going to still be doing what I love!! And, I encourage everyone to also do what they love and never sacrifice yourself!
