The most common thing I hear from contributors is, “I don’t know what to write about.” It seems like we have a built in fear that our story isn’t worth sharing. I am here to tell you that it is!

This blog grew out of my need to find real women dealing with real lives. Difficult, fun, overwhelming, full of blessings. I needed to find someone to relate to, someone attempting to balance life, home, and family while maintaining their mental health.

What I found was dozens and dozens of women looking for the same thing.

Worry less about how you compare to anyone around you. Own your own story and find the power to BE YOU, NOT HER!

While I continue building this community of women who share empathy, empowerment, and confidence, I hope you’ll share your story. I need you and I be there are others who do, too.

I could list a million topics or you could go to Google or Pinterest and find them. But here’s a little formula to help you come up with some of your own:

Take an event, a hobby, something you love, a regular thing you do and brainstorm 5 ideas from there.
