I’ve always been intrigued by blogs, a safe place where you can let out what’s in, give ideas, motivate, and share your passion. I’ve been toying with the idea of blogging for a few years.  Do I want to be a Mom blogger?  A baking blogger?  Those are my “interests” right?  But that’s so not me, I am more than a wife, a mom, a baker.   I love my children more than anything, but I wouldn’t call that a passion.

I like to help people, build them up.  I am an excellent cheerleader, “good luck”, “you can do it” “stay positive” it all comes from a place of love and loyalty. That’s my passion, other people.

This year got off to a really rough start. I went through what has been the most awful time in my life thus far, I lost my mom amongst other major changes in my life. As the days fly by it doesn’t get “easier” just different. You find out who really matters in your life, who was there and who wasn’t. You learn to let the little things go (not without losing your shit several times first). You learn what matters most to you, what deserves your time and what doesn’t. You come up with new goals and revisit old ones.  I’d like to go back six months and have a redo.  If I knew then what I know now.  I can’t change anything that happened but I would change my actions. What’s that saying?  What happens to you is not as important as how you react to what happens. I’m a firm believer in looking forward and staying positive, but for months I’ve been stuck.  Unable to move forward, unable to pick myself up.  Until now.

Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.  Trust your struggle.

Each day starts with a new beginning.  A fresh start. Where will my focus be?

I have a few addictions, some good, some not so good.  I’ve always leaned towards exercise to destress and center myself.  What could be better than running out your aggressions alone in the woods, listening to some of your favorite music (as loud as humanly possible of course). It’s my time.  And the feeling the morning after a super tough workout “my everything hurts”, I love it. It tells me I worked hard, kicked ass and I’m stronger than I was yesterday.

My blog needs to be about my passion, other people.  Inspiring others by being the inspiration. I’m excited to share my experiences, trials, and tribulations of my journey and where I hope to be.  I have so much to share. It’s good to hope, dream, and be consumed by passion, whatever that may be. I can’t wait to see what the future will bring, and to be able to share with you.  If this blog can inspire one person to step forward and make a change, then I’ve already won. So I leave you with two questions this week:

What’s your passion?

What inspires you?
