#dearyoungmom – Confidence is Key!

First things first… *shameless plug alert* have you guys seen the article I was featured in on Care.com? Check it out and tell me what you think!

That interview actually inspired my post today because I’m going to admit it 100% I’ve had a little bit of writers block. Blogging is funny. It’s easy for me to come up with a million and one titles but then when it comes to the actual post/content……. *crickets*…. It’s like the words won’t flow to match the ideas.

Anyway.. I’m back with another #dearyoungmom post but this post isn’t specifically geared towards young moms. It’s applicable to everyone. My main thought today:

I’ve recently had an influx of people just mindlessly giving me their opinion that no one asked for. When you become a parent from the moment you announce the pregnancy to the time your child is 101 SOMEONE is going to have SOMETHING to say about how you’re doing ANYTHING.

It’s so important to be confident in yourself as a mom at any age. Mommy instinct is real! I had no idea what I was going to do when I found out I was pregnant. I questioned everything and my main thought was “what if I completely screw this up?!”. But from the moment he was placed in my arms I knew I’d do anything to get it right. And it’s a learning experience believe that! I’m not saying you’ll have immediate knowledge. But there’s nothing wrong with researching and asking questions and being confident with the decisions that YOU make for your little ones. No one knows them like mommy. Not even daddy ;).

Flaunt that confidence girl! And if all else fails remember the first kid is the practice kid haha!

Muah!!!

#dearyoungmom – The Introduction

#dearyoungmom is a weekly series featuring advice, tips, motivation and inspiration for young mothers. I am by no means an expert, just a fellow young mommy offering my advice through personal experience. The goal is to remind other young mothers that you are not alone!

When I first started blogging I didn’t really have a purpose. I just wanted to have people to talk to and because I’m so introverted blogging was a great way to make “friends”. Now when I blog I think about all the people that may or may not come into contact with my writing and I think more about blogging with purpose. 

Encouraging young moms is so important to me. I’d go as far as saying its a passion. Whenever I think about what I want to do, it’s always one of the first things I think about. I’m a firm believer if you can’t stop thinking about something you need to pursue it.

So this is my first #dearyoungmom post. The first of many. If you have a question… Ask me.   Need  someone to talk to? Connect with me.  I’m here for you. Because I needed someone there for me. And sometimes it’s hard to find people. But you’re not in this alone!
