I love seeing another woman accomplish their goal, follow their dream, and succeed on their path. I get that deep within feeling with an ear to ear smile when someone says that they’ve reached their goal or finally did what they said they were going to do. Or when they are unapologetic-ally themselves and could truly give a damn about what someone might say. S.N. – I’m so proud of my bestie -she’s getting her Bachelor’s and graduating next month! She’s finished despite all that has been thrown at her. I told her I celebrate her because there could be another woman out there thinking she won’t finish or thinking she won’t make it and could look at her and be inspired.
It is so important to celebrate and cherish our sisters out here. We as women are such complex, colorful, mysterious beings that are filled with so much love and pain. We can be naive and strong. We can be hard and soft. We hold treasures within us but forget sometimes that not everybody needs a copy of the map. So to have a person in your corner, cheering you on, crying with you but sharpening the switchblade if need be, laughing at the dumb stuff and giving the pep talks that you didn’t want to hear -it’s a great feeling.
That’s why I created this blog. Like I’ve said, I had my best friend and a small tribe when I was trying to conceive but it took a minute to find other people who were going through the same things. Then when I did get pregnant, I had so many questions that didn’t have easy answers. I couldn’t find these things so I created this for me and other women like me. If it’s crossed my mind, I’m sure it’s crossed others so I hope that this will be that center for the odd, awkward, taboo, out there questions, concerns and jokes from the extrovert introvert such as myself.
So to the ladies reading this, I have love for you. I feel you. I know and I support you. I congratulate you! I’m sending smiles and hugs and wishing so much more of what you are seeking. You are abundantly loved and I celebrate the person you are. Until next time my people.
