Today, I am grateful for those experiences because now, as a mother, I have the responsibility and hope to be my children’s greatest teacher. I pray, a lot. I meditate. I practice yoga, my children sometimes join me. I go to therapy when I need to.
It’s since created a movement around the blogosphere in an effort to remind readers that blogs, are written by real people. Real emotions drive those real people to write and they have fears -too. Most importantly, as Jess writes herself, “I just want to see what it feels like to really push past my own self-imposed boundaries and share my thoughts that don’t often grace MML.”
- I miss my father desperately, fiercely, everyday.
- I don’t know how to take a compliment.
- I don’t forget faces, but I forget people’s names way too often.
- Some mornings, I have to REALLY push myself to get out of bed.
- I am terrified of looking at mirrors in the dark. I think that Candyman is going to appear.
- I’ve made peace with body, but my battle with Nutella is still not over.
- That advocating about mental health is an uphill battle, but as afraid as I am to continue, I won’t give up.
If I’ve learned anything up to this point in my life is that when you shine your light, you unconsciously set others free. I hope that I’ve done that for someone today as I continue to move forward exposing and honoring who I am today and always!
