When I first started La La Land Mommy my goal was not to be bored and have some to do. I was feeling low about not being able to find a job. I was just all around down probably depressed if I was being honest with myself. I just didn’t feel like I had any purpose beyond just sitting in my house and taking care of my family. Sometimes you just get stuck in what has become your new normal that you don’t think to see things differently. In becoming so focused on what I considered to be my normal and purpose in life at the time I forgot about me.
I didn’t realize how much I forgot about me until I had to think about what I wanted to share on my blog. I also started doing things like attending blogging events on my own and with my family. If you go back and look at some of my blog posts you can actually see that I had no idea what I wanted to talk about. About four years ago my life was nothing but my kids and husband were my world. They still are but I needed to throw a little bit of me in the mix. I have started to do that. I still need to improve but now I want to encourage others to do the same and not to wait.
So I think that is what La La Land Mommy will be focusing on. I will still be focusing on my family. By me focusing on me they will surely benefit. I am also learning that self care can mean different things to different people. I hope to explore different ways of taking care of yourself. Now granted I am still learning.
You don’t have to be a mom or wife to forget to take care of yourself. Sometimes life just gets in the way and you forget about you. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I will still be discussing things that my family and I do. Talking about parenting but I am now beginning to try to find out who I am. My kids will be adults soon. So I have to figure out who I am after they are adults. I figured it is never too late to learn who you are.
So I hope you are on board with me on my journey to continue putting myself first. I also hope you continue to stop in to see the new products I am trying, share a great book that I am reading, and see what’s going on with me and the family. I will still being sharing those great things as well. Here’s hoping that La La Land Mommy will have an amazing 2017.
