It’s been a while since I posted. I realized that I was restricting myself to topics, but I actually have a lot of interests. In reality, as moms, we all have a lot of interests, but we shelve them and put them away because we are trying to do the best we can to take care of our children, our family, our friends, but we don’t ever focus on ourselves. Those that do are criticized or called selfish. It’s not okay.
It is never selfish to be who you are. It is never selfish to own who you are. To find out who you are. To love who you are. To find someone that will love you completely for who you are and help you become who you want to be.
In the past few months since I stopped writing in this blog, I started exploring what it is I really want out of life. I want to be a good mom, yes, but I also want to focus on myself and my well-being.
As Moms, we need to take that moment of time out for ourselves and really understand who we are. Not just moms. All women.
As I journey through my thoughts and my life, I’ve realized that I have spent a lot of time requesting permission to be happy. Requesting permission from my husband, my mom, others.
I will not request permission. I will just be happy. It is my choice. My gift to my daughter is to be strong, independent and happy and to encourage her to be strong and independent, too.
A lot of times, as women, we fear judgment. However, we shouldn’t fear it if we are living our best lives. Be free. Be you. Don’t fear what others think.
We have one life. Let’s live it to the fullest while being respectful and encouraging others to do the same.
