In 2016 I decided to create a blog. At the time I had an urge to help women and young girls develop self-love for themselves. Before I knew what self love was, my past relationships always made me question my self-worth. I remember thinking after my last relationship that I was done dating. I was simply going to focus on myself and my two children.
I started attending Carolina Pregnancy Center Mops group. The group focused on parenting children. I signed up for the group because I knew if I wanted to be the best mom, I had to learn how to be a parent.
After going through the program for several months, I found myself volunteering to help pass out materials, set up the class room, help in the store. After volunteering for a while, one day they asked me to speak. I shared a story about forgiveness and how it was not for others it was for ourselves. Forgiveness is part of healing. I knew that I needed to forgive to heal from my past life experiences.
As I shared my story the room was silent, I could sense the emotions in the women's hearts. They were hurt like me. They wanted to feel like they were enough, and they desired true love. After months of helping out I decided to volunteer in the program.
I remember attending the yearly banquet and they highlighted me as one of the moms who improved the most in the program.
One day I was volunteering and one of the other volunteers for the program asked me "why wasn't the other women in the program making drastic changes in their lives like I was?" I kindly said, "I do not know?" I pondered that as I left and it kept with me for a while until I discovered the answer.
I did something different then what they were teaching in the parenting classes.
I went on a journey of self discovery. The journey of being with oneself. I healed myself and restored balance in my life and was able to find the love of my life.
I had emptied myself from baggage and fell in love with myself.
I did this through taking care of my mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. When I started this blog I shared advice on finding the right soul mate, handling conflict, choosing your tribe, and the list of stories continued.
Now my stories are geared toward self-healing and self-development.
I knew that if I wanted to be a better parent, it took more than just having parental skills. It took healing myself so that my past wounds would not effect the ones I love. It took me taking care of me so that I will know what true love is and how to give love. It took me taking care of those key areas. My mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well being.
It meant me becoming who I wanted the world to see me as. Taking care of those key areas is key to living a balanced life and this blog is my mission to spread awareness with everyone around the world. If we want to improve our lives, we must first improve ourselves.
