On gratitude and goals.

November 24, 2017

Let me confess, I am not typically a fan of Thanksgiving.  I have always struggled with the idea of gluttony.  I grew up in remarkably humble means, grateful for anything and everything.  Thanksgiving has always struck as one day of year when suddenly everyone is thankful, and I hate that.  I wholeheartedly believe we should be thankful all the time.

This year, I’m taking a new approach to the holiday.  I’m choosing to see Thanksgiving as a special day of reflection.  I feel I have just sit here all morning, filled to the brim with gratitude.  Of course, I’m thankful for our life’s necessities.    Our food, water, eyesight, clean drinking water, and my healthy family.

But I had to hope on here and tell you guys how truly, authentically happy I am to write for you guys everyday.  Your support has been so life changing for me.  This blog pulled me from a dark place and help me grow outside of myself.  I am reaching women across the world, and helping them (hopefully) live their best life.  Above that, I’m helping women hear “me too” more often.  I don’t sugar coat that motherhood and being a wife can be stressful!  I’m an advocate for the beautiful role of homemakers.  You guys reading this blog has given me a deep purpose and has fueled my passion for supporting women.  I have some huge things in store for all of us in 2018, and I’m so blessed to have you all along for the ride.  I’m grateful for you.
