Wow! My very first post. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I started this blog because I love to write, but also because I felt like I had lost myself. Outside of being a wife and mother, I didn’t know who I was, and I didn’t have anything for myself. Everyone around me were growing their own businesses and developing things they were passionate about, and I just felt like an empty shell.
At the beginning of last year, my job announced its closing, and I had to decide what to do next. It was a childhood dream to become an English teacher, so I went back to college again to obtain another Master’s degree. After a year of English classes and three rambunctious kids, I realized teaching was just a dream, but it was my English classes that reminded me of how much I love writing. What better way to express myself then through my own blog, right?!
Before I recently published my first book of poetry, Who Is She? on Amazon.com, I never felt like I could be myself. In fact, having a voice of my own is still new, but I’m embracing it with so much fierceness and my goal is that you do too!
It is my hope that my posts inspire you to speak loudly and live boldly.
Thanks for reading!
