I am taking the proverbial leap of faith, and launching this new baby of mine into the world.
This year has been a year of taking leaps of faith, so I’m no rookie at this; but for some reason, it’s taken me the longest time to birth this out.
Probably because the idea of sharing my thoughts and opinions to the general public seems like asking for unnecessary stress — what with all the trolls that lurk in cyberspace, and the risk of airing my dirty laundry in public, so to speak.
But right when I’m about to give up, I’m reminded of why I even thought of starting this in the first place.
It’s because I know I’m not alone in this.
It’s because I know I’m not the only woman going through what I’ve gone through, and still am going through.
It’s because of YOU.
Yes, you. I know that just like me, you’ve struggled with your body image, and your self-esteem. I know that just like me, you know how it feels to be fat-shamed. I know that just like me, you just want to be the best mom to your kids while still feeling good about yourself — no matter how you choose to nurture your children.
So thank you, my friend — for inspiring me to amplify my voice, for reminding me that I do have a voice, and people are waiting for it to be heard.
People like you.
This is for you.
