My First Blog Entry...I am excited and have so many thoughts running through my head.
I wanted to create a blog that would inspire, encourage and help not only single moms, but moms and parents alike. It is tough being a parent, especially if you are trying to balance a career on top of parenting because it is not easy and sometimes you can't have it all (sorry Oprah.).
I am now officially 2 years removed from my divorce. I can't say that my marriage was great and that I was surprised by my divorce. The fact of the matter is that leading up to my divorce I was having second thoughts, but 5 weeks prior I found out I was pregnant (on birth control pills...so it can happen) hormones raging I just decided what the heck, I didn't want to be a single mom at the time and thought it was best for all involved. My marriage lasted about 1 1/2 years and then I realized that no that he was not the right man for me. I had given my all and I was done. The emotional, and mental drain was too much. The best thing that I could for my daughter was leave and I did. I am happy so say that my ex and I have put our differences a side and parent wonderfully together, but it wasn't easy and it wasn't through pain and hurt. But we got there because our daughter is the most important thing in the world to the both of us.
As I continue this blog..I will share many things that I have been through and hopefully it will encourage you in your own life. I encourage comments, and sharing and questions. I am an open person and there is no questions that are off limits in my book. I have been through too much in my 30 years to be ashamed of anything.
