Hey everyone, long time no talk, right? If you hadn’t noticed, I’d taken a break from MoonstoneMom for about 5 months, but I’m back! I feel like I owe you all an explanation, or it would at least make me feel better to provide one.
I was so excited to start this page, maybe I jumped in too soon, or the timing just wasn’t right but it started to become something that wasn’t……..me. I tried getting ideas from other ‘mom blogs’ and it felt ok but just didn’t flow from my heart. Then when we moved into our tiny home, I kind of felt pressured that this should turn into a tiny home blog. That it HAD to turn into a tiny home blog.
Y’all, our house isn’t like the fancy tiny homes on TV, we’re just living our basic, crazy life but in smaller square footage. It gets messy, there’s laundry piled up all over the couch as we speak, Bradley is sitting in a Mac and Cheese mess, and after 6 months of living here, Brynlee’s room still hasn’t been organized or found a good set up. We’re just living and enjoying our days together as a family. I don’t have anything interesting to tell you about a tiny house except we love it! It’s just normal to us, I don’t have tiny house content to share on a daily basis. So, I felt discouraged, I wasn’t getting the joy I hoped for, and really just felt like I failed and needed to step back for a while. I knew I wasn’t done with this journey yet, I just needed time for growth and envisioning what I really want.
“The comeback is always stronger than the setback!” I’m not sure who said that, I could Google it, but I don’t feel like it. The point is, it’s true! I knew I wanted to start this year off chasing my dreams and that’s what I’m doing.
You’ve probably noticed a change in the theme of my posts. Sorry y’all, but life is too short to be anything but true to yourself. This year I’m taking back what is mine and writing and posting from my heart and soul. Everything is going to be raw and real, and you know what? Being your true self with no fear of judgement comes with so much ease! I’m connecting with new people, enjoying where life is at and the people I’m around.
There were so many hopes and dreams for MoonstoneMom at the beginning, and I’m not going to hold myself back anymore out of fear! January is going to set the pace for the months ahead. I’ve poured so much energy in the past to selling other companies products and I’m ready to build my own brand. The possibilities are endless and I have so many ideas I can’t wait to share with you all. I just want to say thank you to those who have continued to follow along on this journey. I’m so excited to take you on this new adventure with me!
