I’ve been blogging in this space forever now (May marks SEVEN years) and from time to time I have to ask myself what I hope to accomplish here. Above all else, this space is where I became a full-fledged woman. These archives are testament to my growth and accomplishments, in spite of the obstacles and pain life threw at me.
But beyond this blog as a personal document, I want it to mean something for all of you as well. I’ve gone through cycles where I feel like the blog isn’t doing enough, isn’t publishing enough, isn’t producing enough to really make a difference. But my inbox and the comments section and our Facebook community and Twitter followers all tell me differently.
I don’t have it all together, but I know that I’m comfortable saying that out loud.
What I want to do here is to help other women grow. Society is rigged against us at times. And it started when we were young and we were always taught to cross your legs, don’t take up space, keep your nose in the books. And it continues into adulthood and so many of us find ourselves clueless about who we are, what makes us happy and how to open our mouths to get there.
I’m learning how to get there. And I hope I can help you get there too. My goal with this site is to help women tap into their power and become full versions of themselves. Here, there is limitless potential and heightened support as the YML Community helps you reach your goals.
Here we’ll talk about sex, about love, about being a great mom. We’ll share how we manage stress, how we look fly on a budget, and how we make sure we always carve out time for ourselves. We’ll discuss our fears, share our triumphs and remind ourselves that we are built to live full lives.
Let this space be YOUR space, be your place to breathe and feel safe and grow and get to happy. I’m so happy you’re here.
