Why Am I Blogging?

Blogging has never been something I was extremely good at.  I never know what to say and if I do come up with some sort of a topic it is typically just blah.  But then I sat down this month and really looked at how a blog could help me.  When I say help me, I don't mean from a business standpoint.  I am more so thinking along the lines of a spiritual cleanse or purge I guess.  Why do I need this?  Great question, and I am hoping I can be as open and honest as possible without the inevitable ideal of making myself look like an ass.

For those who know me know I have a chaotic life.  I have four kids (3, 4, 8, and 11).  I love all four of those little beans to death, but trust me when I say they try every bone of patience in my body.  There are days I curl up in the bathroom (pretending I have to go) just so I can have about 1.5 minutes of breath time. It's crazy how when you have a second to yourself they find you...almost like they are hunting you down and can smell your fear!  And then it begins all over again....the whining, the begging, the crying, the she hit me or he hurt my feelings...the list goes on.  Then there are the pressures of school, sports, and friends.  The drama, the grades, the tests, the so and so said this, the why didn't I make this team....tell me stop because the list can go on and on and on.  

With all that said, I feel a cleanse and purge of all negatives in my life is in order and what better way then to talk the truth about being the person who wears many hats....mom, wife, friend, aunt, daughter, business owner, chef, cleaning lady, unpaid Uber driver, and just a badass woman to say the least.  So this is what my blog is going to focus on, just the trials and tribulations of holding all of these jobs.  The good the bad, and the ugly so to say.  Fasten your seatbelts because there are stories that I will tell that truly are embarrassing, raw, unedited, and completely 100% honest!  

And if you want the truth...make sure you can handle the truth!

  • Hi! What a great idea to write a blog. And an honest one at that. I have three boys a 14-year-old and twin 12-year-olds, and I know where you’re coming from… I see it as waves crashing on the beach and then receding sometimes it’s a big huge crash and sometimes the waves are gently lapping at the shore. As they get older I know there will be greater and greater periods of time between the chaos and the gentleness/thoughtfulness. All I know is that I’m not there yet! Surround yourself with your circle and you will weather the storm. Sending you big virtual hugs! Nadine

  • I hope this is refreshing for you. I remember looking back through my Instagram photos one day and thinking, yes these are my kids but this looks absolutely nothing like my life. I look forward to following and reading your stories as a reminder that I’m not alone. It’s more powerful to connect and engage over real life rather than pretty pictures. Thank you for doing this!
