I was recently reminded that I’ve had my blog for a year now. That might be surprising to most people because for a very long time I didn’t share it with anyone. When I began I didn’t know where I wanted to take it. Stay at home motherhood had really landed me in a world full of unexpected experiences and emotions. I was a mom for the first time. It was the greatest balancing act. I was excited, afraid, anxious, confused and so so grateful for it all. I wanted to share that. I talked a lot to Danny (he’s a very good listener) and made tons of online moms friends but I wanted to do more that. My life had recently become so hectic and busy but I had little moments to myself. They were perfect for writing down my thoughts. The moments while Danny napped.
During many naps and nights I would write whatever was on my mind with no intention of ever sharing it. After a few days I would delete the blog post entirely. It was just nice to have an outlet during those quiet moments.
One day I decided to show Dan what I had been up to. He was extremely supportive and encouraged me to share it. I worried a lot about that content would appeal to others or about it being too simple but the truth is I loved it and that’s all that mattered. It was and still is so therapeutic for me to write down my thoughts and feelings. The posts that remained undeleted were few but Im excited to watch them grow, no longer preoccupied with how others will receive them. This is my baby too.
I love my little blog in all its simplicity and I can’t wait to continue adding to it. Sharing little moments of my life
always one nap at a time.
