So, here it is. I'm going to keep writing, and I'm going to continue to be real. Because, that's how I roll. If I had a mission statement (for this blog), it would look something like this:
Struggle permeates life. Though the struggle makes us human, we so often attempt to evade its presence. We pretend, we keep it to ourselves, we sometimes believe that we make it easier for others to be around us by hiding it. So much of the world is a polished version of itself. How can we relate to a polished version of reality? There is a reason television has been taken over by reality shows, why we've become so obsessed with celebrity gossip, why we read blogs. We're all in search of honesty, confessions, the imperfection that makes us all alike.
I want to put an honest voice out there. That is why I write. I want to give others something to relate to, or at the very least, something that inspires others to be comfortable with their own honest truth. Specifically, right now, I feel compelled to share the truth of my journey through motherhood (and previously, pregnancy and birth). I hope that my honesty frees you, inspires you, or simply entertains you.
Thank you to all my readers! And thank you to the others who sent me nice messages yesterday.
