Beginning my Journey

Last night as I laid in bed, waiting for my husband to get home from plowing, I couldn’t stop thinking of how I could share my story. How can I help women of all ages through their journey, maybe give them an insight to the fact that they are not alone, a peak into a life that may look as though it has no darkness. You know the ones I am talking about, the teen age girl that has the hottest brand clothes, the most perfect hair and the one that everyone wants to hangout with on Friday night. Or the girl with no cares in the world, works her 8 to 5 job and then rushes home to change into that cute pair of jeans and slinky shirt to head out with the girls for a drink or two. Don’t forget those moms, the women that always have their Sh*& together, the ones that appear to always be at every event, their children and husband always fed, clothed to a tee and to work on time everyday. Heck one time or another I have been told by people that I resemble these people. I never knew what people were talking about until I became a mom and was told I resemble these people, and called “supermom”…what me….heck I am holding on by a thread so no “supermom” here. Which you will soon all get a good glimpse of as you follow my blog, but for now just take my word for it. “IT TAKES A VILLAGE”

So how am I ever going to find time to blog with a full time job, a part time job, 4 kids, 3 dogs, and a husband. I am going to make “ME TIME.” Yes I said it, “ME TIME.” My goal is 2 times a month, if I can do more I am going to try like heck. But 2 times a month I am going to do it, I am going to sit down and give a glimpse into life. The good, the bad and the ugly. Not because I want the whole world to know my sh*%, but because I want the whole world to know they are not alone. I want my girls to know that no matter what life hands you that it is your life that you can make it whatever you want. You can sit home and wallow in pity for yourself, or you can make a new better life, that you can make mistakes and you can overcome them and come out even better. That even when days are bad there is always good. I want my son to know that the way he treats a young girl to the way he treats a woman through every age of his existence does not reflect who she is but who he is. I want my husband to know that through every stage of our last 14 1/2 years that I have loved him for the man I know he is and the man I know he is becoming. I want everyone to know that I am the person I am because I have felt love and I have felt pain. I have done good things and I have done bad things but most importantly each stage I have been through has left its mark and has made me into the person I am today and that I continue to become.

Now it is time for me as a good friend says, “mom up” and get dinner for my tribe before they become Hangry. I hope you will continue to join me with my new journey.

For now enjoy some part of your ride everyday on the hot mess express that we call life.
