As excited as I am to get The Matriarch full of amazing content that is super helpful, I have been really focused on doing tons and tons of research. I not only want to make sure that what I am putting out into the blog community is accurate and reliable, but also genuine and realistic.
This isn’t just about a blog for me. My mission is to inspire a community of women who work together to achieve a life of wellness, love, happiness & prosperity.
As I continue to ramble on about a life full of rainbows and butterflies, it’s hard. Life is hard. It can suck the life and energy out of you and you are faced with a constant battlefield every single day (heartache to heartache we stand ;). You are expected to live life like this:
When most of the time I just want to be this:
To get to this happy state of mind I am currently in, somewhere over the rainbow, I had to do a lot of soul-searching, therapy, and good medication. I have struggled to get here.
Through bad relationships, shitty situations and an ugly self-image. To mental illness, addiction & unhealthy habits. This is the first time in all my years of living, that I have really felt good about who I am and what I am. I am far from perfect. I beat myself up more than I am proud of, I have a smart mouth and a bullhead. As young women, we are raised to have high expectations for ourselves, but I now understand that living your best life is not equal to everything being perfect. I have given myself permission to be a masterpiece and a work in progress.
Getting to know myself and finding things I liked that allowed me to express myself has been, and still is a huge part of my journey.
I love to be crafty and try to be artistic. I have had an obsession with notebooks and stationery for literally as long as I can remember (seriously, ask around, I have always been obsessed). I love business and have always wanted my own (#goals). I love to travel and to explore new places. All of these things have helped me find myself. They helped me determine who I am without anyone standing next to me. This new self-discovery was awesome! And now I’m all…
Since healing the mind, I am now working on the body. Because my family and I have relied so heavily on traditional medicine and big pharma to treat our ailments, I have grown concerned with the chemicals we are exposing ourselves to and what that means for long-term health.
In no way, shape or form am I planning on abruptly stopping our current medications. But I am beginning to explore ways I can naturally treat some of our issues while creating an environment in our home that reduces our exposure to harmful chemicals that are potentially stopping our bodies from being able to heal themselves. I have been overwhelmed with research and I am so excited to continue learning more and sharing what I am learning with others!
In The Matriarch Blog, I want to post articles about all of my favorite things and share how these things have helped me find myself again. I will share articles about my favorite things and the research I have done for each. Each of these things will show how I’ve found Wellness, Happiness, Love & Prosperity.
As I work through the Wellness section of my blog, I will be adding articles about Essential Oils, Mental Health, Fitness and healthy recipes. I have also created The Matriarch Community to share my experiences on this new journey and I hope other women will join to share their current journey and the knowledge they are gaining along the way. It is a place where we can share, vent, bounce ideas off of one another and support each other to live our best lives, even on our worst days.
