One of my favourite bloggers is http://www.theshubox.com. I love how she shares her struggles, triumphs, and her moments in life. She inspired me to start waking up between 5 and 5:30 am most weekday mornings. I also feel like there is so much I want to do and I wasn’t getting accomplished in my life. Having young kids makes the time even more precious to carve out so that I’m getting refuelled and also taking steps to accomplish the things that matter to me.
There is so much great information and awesome bloggers that share their lives that it has taken me a few years to really get sharing and working consistently on my blog. Why write if I don’t have something new and different. What I should have seen a long time ago is that it is the sharing of our stories, our perspective that is a creative outlet and connects us together. Those are two very powerful reasons and are enough.
I love how shared experiences make us feel less alone. In knowing that other moms struggle with patience and feel fried by the end of the day, I feel less angst that I’m doing everything wrong. There are lots of picky eaters and meal planning and getting kids to eat healthy is a common struggle too! Sleeping. Enough said there.
I appreciate those that share not only the struggle but all the the things they do to piece a great life together. Food ideas, sleeping thoughts, self care reminders, and many more ideas.
I have friends who I talk with, get together and have a shared journey but I also love being able to sit down at the end of the day or open up my computer bright and early and feel a connection to this shared journey of finding our way through life, parenting, working, and relationships.
