finding the beauty in life

Wednesday, September 13, 2017


I wrote the following blog post a few months ago, but was too scared to post it at the time ! When I logged on to my blogger account today and read the words I had written, I felt so inspired to do what makes me happy and be who I truly am! The role of motherhood has consumed so much of my life these past 15 months, so much so, that I had forgotten who I was and the importance of taking care of myself! With a cup of tea in hand, a cookie waiting near by, and some quiet time, today I realized taking care of myself IS part of being a good mother. If I don't take care of my self and make sure I'm mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy then I can't be the mother, my sweet baby girl deserves. My hope going forward is that I can begin to show myself the love and care that I rightfully deserve in order to raise a strong, independent, and brave young woman, the woman I know little miss Mieke is destined to be.

That being said, here is that post from 


Today was one of the most life changing days of my life! Today was the day when I realized that I would no longer live a life where I could not voice my opinions, feelings, or be my own person. Sometimes I think people decide to stay in certain situations because they have no other choice. But that simply is not true! You always have a choice!!  and while those choices may not always be the easiest, sometimes the hardest decisions we have to make in life are the decisions that are going to benefit us the most in the long run. 

The moment I made the choice, to start living a life that both myself and my daughter could be proud of, I felt freedom for the first time in my life! Never let someone steal your voice or make you feel guilty for living the life you want to live. Do what you feel in your heart is right, and believe that some how some way.... in the end everything will be alright.
