My first post is going to be a little introduction. I do have an about me page, but this is going to be a bit more in depth and about where I am in my life right now.
One thing I know for sure is that I’ve always loved writing. My favorite and easiest things to write are poems. Those come naturally to me. I would also write stories but could never finish them. I’d have the most brilliant ideas, but part of the way through I would lose my way. I guess writing stories just isn’t for me. I’ve never written a blog before, but there’s nothing wrong with trying something new.
I’m not the kind of person that does well with conversation, but I do have much to say. I’ve always wanted somewhere to put these thoughts, but the other mediums I’ve tried didn’t work for me. I’ve tried writing in a diary, but my mind moves faster than my hands. I’ve thought about just typing them up, but I could never find the motivation to sit at the computer and type. A blog I can do though and here’s why.
My primary goal in life is to help others. It doesn’t matter how small or big, as long as it helps another. It could be giving someone a pencil or helping a homeless, and that’s my goal. I believe this blog can help someone. Even if it’s just one person, that’s all I need. I don’t have a very adventurous life, nor am I an adventurous person. I still believe that my insight and knowledge is worth sharing.
Helping others is also why I want to own a daycare. Those first years of life are very crucial to how we turn out as adults. If I can help the next generation to become great, If I can create an oasis for kids to learn and be themselves, If I can convince one child that they are perfect just the way they are then I have completed my goal.
Since I’m a mom, I want all of those things for my son. I want him to grow up to be kind, to be different, and to be open minded. I want him to be a gentleman, not a playboy. There are many many things I want him to be (I’d have to make a whole other post on that), but most of all I want him to be empathetic, and I want him to follow the golden rule. Treat other the way you want to be treated. I believe that just those two things will help him to become a great man.
I am a first-time mom, so all of this is new to me. I’m also a single mother, so, for the most part, I will be doing this on my own. I’m the kind of person that likes to do research or see how others are doing things. One thing I have been told and am learning, though, is to follow my instincts. If it does not feel right to me, even if other disagrees, I will do what I feel is right, because he is my son.
Staying true to yourself and what you believe is hard, especially when everyone is telling you not too. I know I’ve done some things that go against what I thought was right. I wish I hadn’t, but I’ve learned from my mistakes. These mistakes have made me who I am today, so I don’t regret them. Though because of these mistakes I know how important it is to stay true to myself and my beliefs.
It may seem like I didn’t say much, but this me. I’m a single mom raising my son to be kind. My goals are to help others and stay true to what I believe is right.
Tell me, where are you in your life right now? What are your goals? If you have any questions for me feel free to ask.
