I’m by nature very competitive, but for some reason, when I got the email with the good news that I was within the top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers, the last thing that crossed my mind was to compete for the first place.
I was so proud and happy, thinking about how much I needed an adults time, looking for ” the dress ” for the party.., However, when I saw how excited my mom and friends were, trying to get votes for me, sending me messages etc. my ambitious side came out, and I started to get stress, and feeling all of those feelings that I do not like to feel when I get competitive.
Today it was one of those rare days when we were able to chill and do NOTHING, one of those days when you have all the time in the world to just think, so while I was lying in bed, reading all the messages I received from friends, no friends, and people that I haven’t meet in real life yet, I found myself smiling, because it reminded me of what is this all about.
I started to write because I wanted to share my thoughts about the real struggles of achieving wellness, later on, the struggles went to a new level when I became a mother. Between these 2 chapters, I started to discover all of these amazing Local brands, people, and places, that made me more conscious of where I was putting my money and health.
In the last 2 years, this blog has brought nothing but GOOD feelings to me, and believe me, I know I have a lot of work to do with this website, Instagram, etc. but the reason why I’m in slow motion, is because this is something that I’m enjoying, something that makes ME happy, is one of those things that I do for pleasure, for fun, for therapy ( LOL! ) the moment that it starts to be stressful or bringing negative feelings, the “special” thing about it, is going to be gone, and I’m not going to be able to bring what I want to transmit to my readers.
I’m feeling so FULL with all the messages that I’ve received, and so happy finding out all of these people I didn’t know were reading me, especially because as I said before, I never thought someone would read this. I’m so amazed at how something that I do as a hobby, became this big in a short period of time.
We do not have control of our feelings, however, we do have on how we react to them, so all I’m doing tonight, is being on Pinterest looking for that Vintage dress.
Thank you so much for all your love and support!
