I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, mind you I’m always thinking. My head doesn’t stop, I’m constantly thinking…about everything. What could’ve I done better today to be a better person, to be a better parent, to be a better wife. What should I do next, how can I be happier in life, how can I achieve more. When I wake up in the middle of the night for baby’s feedings, I sit on the rocking chair with A3. I feed her and rock her back to sleep, all the while…I think.
I’ve had many revelations on that chair.
I think a lot, but I like to think that I do a lot too. If you only knew what I’ve done this week…
The Cancer Fundraiser that I organized took place last Saturday. It was a real success only because of a great response from people. I have 3 kids and no time to sleep or eat, but I made time for this event because the cause is very important to me. 3 kids or 10, it doesn’t matter…I hope to do a fundraiser every year as I have for the past 5 years.
Since the event passed, I was supposed to rest. Rest? It doesn’t seem to be in my blood. I’m always up to something. Always.
I dream big, and I attack my dreams full force. Sometimes they’re good ideas, sometimes they’re bad ones. But no matter what it is I’m doing or trying to do, my mentality is that there’s no wrong in trying. Dream big, go ahead, try it, what’s the worst that’s going to happen? Someone who tries has a better chance at success than someone who doesn’t, right ?
If you don’t take any chances, how can you know what your full potential is? It’s easy to be comfortable, it’s harder to try something new and explore the unknown. Let’s take this blog for example. I didn’t know what a blog was and I was frankly scared of the idea. Today after almost 2 months I have over 4000 views. (I don’t even know if that’s considered a little or a lot in this blogging world) but it was unknown, new and uncomfortable at first , but I did it anyways. ( Surely this is a minor example, but you get the point)
If you only knew what I did today…Jack doesn’t even know…he’s going to be so mad.
If I end the post like this I’m going to hear it from my friend (spa girl). She complains to me if my posts don’t make her laugh. She read “Nothing here” (2 posts back) and told me “I didn’t like it, it didn’t make me laugh! Hurry and write another one” I tasked her” and what was the title of that post?” She replied “Nothing here!” so there!
One thing I love about spa girl, is that she always speaks her mind. So I actually get real feedback from her.
I write what I’m thinking, I can’t always be funny. But I will always be real.
See some bloggers write about things to attract an audience. I don’t want to do that. I want to write whatever I want and whoever wants can stay and read. We’ll see who’s with me til the end. I started a blog and since then have wondered its purpose. I still am not sure of it but it’s definitely multi-faceted.
Don’t worry I’ll still fill you in on the mommy side of things .
For example, I googled “green breast milk” last week. Not for the fun of it, but because it was actually green! Apparently it’s normal and it means there’s not a lot of fat in it. Lately I’ve also googled “abundant perspiration after pregnancy” again, not for the fun of it… I learned that it’s normal for women to perspire more than usual several weeks after pregnancy and longer if they are breast feeding. If I knew this it would’ve saved me lots of trouble and worry. Another thing I googled “Hair in baby’s eye”. If it happens to your baby, don’t panic, it will eventually come out on its own.
I’m a mommy of 3 trying to blog about real life and how to make the best of it.
Took me 2 months to figure this much out.
Who knows what another 2 months can bring.
