It can’t go unnoticed. One look at my stats, and it is obvious. This blog drives A LOT of traffic on some days, and then suddenly tapers off to nothing. You know what I realized people like hearing about? My struggles. I think you all like to see me cry.
The last time I posted emotional things was when I asked if I am “Being Enough“. And ya know what? I had actually written that 3 months prior. I just felt like I had to show you all a sob story to get back some readers. Before that it was “The Straw That Broke This Single Mama’s Back” .
But here’s the thing…
I am happy.
I haven’t been writing the emotional posts you all apparently like because I am feeling extremely balanced.
I have this amazing little 3-year-old…
Who is a gigantic goof ball. He loves making me laugh. His laugh makes my heart melt. He loves helping his mama and giving me hugs. I constantly feel lucky that this little ball of energy picked me for a mama.
I have fantastic friends who are always there for me. And I mean always…one has even been by my side for the last 26 years. I can call them with anything and they will step right in. They offer advice. They let me know I am a good person.
My family has shown me amazing support. I have recently acknowledged I needed to take more time for myself. And you know what? I have. And that is because of my family. They are allowing me to have my own personal life. Even if I call them every 2 hours when I am away from HJ.
And there’s this guy…he is actually making me feel like I am a beautiful person again. He has been helping me navigate this crazy world of dating with a child and has been nothing but supportive throughout it.
Also, I love this time of year. The holidays just make me feel warm and fuzzy.
So, even though you like it when I cry, I just can’t. Not now. There are too many smiles happening.
