The First Step



Taking this step and sharing my thoughts in this blog is a big step for me. I enjoy writing but it terrifies me to share my writing with others. I am comfortable with who I am but sharing who I am with others is more difficult for me. I know that I am not perfect (far from it) and that there are many things that I need to work on, but I have my strengths and quirks that make me, me. And I embrace those strengths and quirks. My hope is that others embrace their strengths and quirks too because there is always some way we can connect with each other, some way that we can learn from each other. I love learning from others, so please share who you are too. 

I am a mom and I embrace that title completely. I love it. I love my daughters more than I could have ever imagined. I love seeing them learn and grow and yet I still feel like time is moving way too fast. I blink and they are another month or even year older. Every day I look at my girls and think, when did you get so big? Where has that time gone? 

I love being a wife. Marriage is wonderful, yet difficult and refining, but having my husband as a constant companion, and the one who really gets me, is beautiful. He inspires me to be the best version of myself that I can be and loves me even when I am not.

I am an introvert and a sensitive one at that, something that I am only just beginning to completely grasp. I am thankful for parents who fostered in me a love of who I am and didn’t see my introversion as a negative thing. I am now experiencing some of the things that they experienced in raising me as I am now raising at least one daughter who is an introvert.

I’d say that’s me in a nutshell, but that’s not really true. This is only a small part of who I am. Each of us has so many parts to us. Every person has a story and this is just a part of mine. My hope in this blog is to connect more with others in a similar situation of either being an introvert parent or in being the parent of an introvert, both of which I am. I hope that we can learn from each other, rejoice with each other when we triumph, and comfort each other when we don’t. Even though beauty may at times be hard to find and life is difficult, beauty (sometimes in the form of hope) is still there.
