Have you ever wanted to do something but you were afraid of what people would think or how it would be received? I’ve always been the person to talk myself out of things because fear dictates a lot of my decisions, but this time was going to be different. I had made a bucket list of things I wanted to be able to say that I had accomplished in my life and writing a book was one of them. The question was, what would I write about?
My son was 2 years old at the time and he served as my motivation for many of the choices I was making in my life, so it did not come as a surprise to me that he would once again become the motivation for my next big move. Who needed to make up a story when I could write about my own? I was a young first time mother who had experienced ups and downs with endometriosis, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), depression, and miscarriage. I had felt feelings of sadness as a mother that I was ashamed to share with others and here was my chance to let go of everything I had held in for the last two years.
Never did I imagine the impact this book would have on not only myself but other women in the world as well. My book became a humorous laugh at my pain that would serve as self-therapy and an outlet for women who felt or experienced similar things as me. What started out as just something to cross off my bucket list became one of my most important accomplishments. Although, I did not publish until 7 months later, today marks 3 years since making the decision to put my motherhood journey on paper for the world.
After having other moms reach out to me, come up to me at events, and share their similar stories of motherhood, I knew then that I had made the right decision. Sharing my story made an impact I will forever be proud of. To those who purchased and read my book, Thank you❤️ To those who reviewed my book, thank you ❤️
