Things have been changing in my life. Lots of things have changed. In no big or viral way, I have become a wife and a mother. And just that sentence alone is new a scary and exciting and makes me want to burst into tears, (probably the hormones). I have not written to you in a while, and the real reason is, I have been unsure of what you wanted me to say. I built my blog on being the single girl with high standards. A little defensive and open to love but closed to any imitations. I wrote from exactly where I was, exactly what I was feeling, and I felt so relatable and less alone. I felt empowering and motivating and like I was making a difference.
Now, I am in a different stage of my life, and as well as I can relate to you single girls, I can relate to the new wife. I see many of you can now also. I’m learning new lessons, becoming more independent and more dependent at the same time. I’m caring less about what people think and more about how my family will respond and grow in each decision I make. I’m learning to ask opinions and make my husband a priority. I’m learning to still be in awe and wonder about all the things God has prepared for me in my future. I’ve learned that change is scary and hard and exciting and inevitable.
Soon, I will be a mother, and as much as you don’t want thefulltimegirl to become a mommy blog, believe me, I don’t either. I will do my best to share lessons that I am learning in a relatable way for you whether you are a mom or grown kids or still yet to be married and start a family of your own.
I guess I just wanted to let you know where my head has been for the past, well, year. Blogging is not something I want to give up on. I guess I just needed some time to settle into a new role. I won’t forget what it was like to be single. I still have tons of relationship advice. I still have two shoulders to cry on. I’m still a girl just like you navigating unfamiliar territory the best that she can. And I still feel like God wants me to share my heart and impact some lives for Him in a small way.
To those of you still reading and following, I want to say thank you. It’s easy to give up on someone when they aren’t giving you what you need or have come to expect from them. I’m so glad you stuck around. I love hearing your stories and seeing you grow along with me. Feel free to leave a message here catching me up on what exciting things have been going on in your life! I would love to hear them.
I’m excited about what we have to learn ahead of us, and so thankful for what we have accomplished thus far. So that’s my introduction into what’s next. What exactly that is, I honestly have no idea but I’m up for the challenge. 🙂
