Two Years

Last week I was hanging out with SG (yes, I gave it another shot) and we were talking about goals (no, it wasn't like a scene out of that Steve Harvey movie -- "What are your short term goals? What are your long term goals?" *Rolls eyes*). During our conversation, I mentioned to him that starting out strong means nothing unless you get to your finish line (or some variation of that statement).

That's the thing about goals -- we set them and we have beautiful beginnings with them.

And then... the real work begins. It can (and often does) get murky and messy somewhere in the middle. There are setbacks -- lots of 'em. So much so that sometimes the comebacks can seem as though they are few and far between, which makes it hard to stay afloat, to swim and not sink. This happens all. the. time.

But when we push pass the messy middle, when we buckle down and grind through, we can reach our finish line.

I say all of this to say that two years ago, I set out to create this community. I toyed with the idea for months before actually launching the site because my goals for the blog, the mission statement, and the words for the first post were rapidly rearranging themselves in my head. Sometimes they still rearrange themselves in my head because this place is ever-evolving, but I'm happy to report that the main goal of the blog is being achieved.

That goal is to inspire you. To encourage you to embrace who you are in it's entirety, whether you're single, married, or somewhere in between. To work it and rock it as best as you know how. And to never let anything or anyone allow you to forget how awesome you are and how much you're worth.

And I'm happy to report that after two years, I'm content with where I am in life. I feel confident to embrace my single mom status. I feel confident to embrace my young mom status. I feel confident to enjoy a night out with my gals while wearing a little black dress (as pictured) and still be present and available the next day with Aiden (as pictured).

Two years ago, as I hit the publish button on that first post, I didn't think that I'd be where I am today.

But I am.

And It feels good. I'm kinda loving it.

So... cheers to two years of kickassness, and hopefully many more!
