What the heck is this blog about? Can you tell? What can my readers expect from VainMommy?
These are questions I was having a terribly hard time answering. I visit other blogs… they have themes and specific topics that they cover. I know what to expect when I enter their piece of the web.
Then, I looked through my last few blog posts they jump around like Mexican jumping beans!
At first the lack of direction bothered me, I began to fall into old habits, thinking that I needed to conform and that my little corner of the web needed to be like everyone else’s
But I remembered…
My goal in life is to be 100% authentic. I lived 28 years of my life thinking that I needed to be someone else.
My blog reflects me and MY life. VainMommy, like life, is ever-changing.
My mind changes — a lot (gasp), I jump from one thing to the next.
Following God’s Lead
The sudden changes in course — it’s not me… it’s Him. This is my year of saying YES! HECK YES! to the opportunities He sends my way, trusting His plan for my life over my futile plans I’ve attempt to make for myself.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I will never box myself in EVER again! When you box yourself in you inadvertently box God in.
So What will you be sure to find here at VainMommy?
God — Me — and PPD! Kind of catchy huh!
These are three constants in my life that I won’t turn my back on. God is the undertone of my existence, my reason for doing the things I do. Me — I have to be true to myself. Postpartum Depression (PPD) — is what brought me too my knees and forced me to be ME! After that hell I reemerged a new person. Also talking about it helps others and it’s important to me to be there for woman who may need me.
As soon I begin to think that my PPD story is played out someone asks me a question, or thanks me for sharing.
So it continues….
Know that this could very well change — after all it’s Him, not me in charge here.
I’ve dropped the reigns, God orders my foot steps. I have no idea where I’m headed, and I don’t wanna know! He’s leading me on a scavenger hunt one blessing after another! He really gives the best surprises!
