NOBODY SAID IT WAS EASY.

I’m going to be real and honest with you for a minute here. If you are newer here or have never ready why I started blogging I’m going to share why with you. I never intended on my blog being what it is today when I started it. I started my blog to force myself to be confident in who I am. I have always been a sensitive person, and I have always wanted to learn how to not get my feelings hurt so easily. I knew when I started blogging that it would be hard to fully put myself out there. To put pictures of myself on the internet for everyone to look at and see. I knew that people would have things to say. I had many comments that really tore me down, and you know what, I am so grateful for every one of those comments. I would not be where I am today without them. Not just in the blogging world, but also in my life. I have been told that “just because everyone else is starting a blog doesn’t mean that I can do it”, “you are short and stumpy and have no place to wear that skirt”, “why do you even blog? you aren’t pretty enough”, and so many other things. These mean things that people should have kept to themselves or just shut my webpage could have torn me down and I will be honest, they did for a few days. However, I picked myself back up and moved on. This has helped me so much in my everyday life to stick to who I am, not let people push me around, and to be confident in who I am and what I stand for.
No one said blogging would be easy and it sure isn’t. To be constantly in the public eye is hard. To always have someone watching every move you make and tell you how they think you should be living your life or how you should care for your baby. I don’t write this post for someone to feel bad for me, or to make it seem like I want people to give me praise and good comments. I just want you to know that I am so grateful to be where I am now personally because of my blog. I also wanted to just share with you why I blog and how it has evolved over the past 2 years. I am so grateful to each and every one of you for helping me to become the person I am. Without you, your support, comments, love & even hate I would be not be strong, I wouldn’t be the mom I am today, and I wouldn’t be where I am today. THANK YOU!! XO
I’m amazed at the things that people feel comfortable with saying on the internet just because they’re sitting behind a keyboard. I love your blog and your style posts, and your sweet little family!
Love the socks.
Beautiful post – thank you so much for sharing. I honestly can’t understand why people say the hateful things they say.
