One of the Main Reasons Why I Blog

"Where there is no vision, the people perish . . ."
 - Proverbs 29:18a (KJV)

I've been giving a lot of thought lately to why I'm blogging. Why did I start it (other than to give DH's ears a rest)? What is the message I'm hoping to communicate? Who do I want to communicate it to?

I'm starting to figure it out. I could be cryptic and let you put the pieces together as the blog continues, but it seemed to make more sense for me to just be up front with it.

One of the main things I'm passionate about is wanting every woman to know that she is someone special. God made each one of us the way we are for a reason. My desire is for every woman to figure out who she is and be proud of being that person.

My goal would be for women everywhere to know that they are unique and be thankful for that.

You are not like me (no audible cheers here please). I am not like you. Being different from each other doesn't make one of us less than the other. We're just different.

It's so hard to be a woman some days. I don't know about you, but I find myself comparing myself to other women. "She's so much skinnier than I am." "She's a LOT sweeter than me." "I wish I could be as good at housekeeping as she is." So maybe not that last one, but you get the idea.

In comparing ourselves to others, we fail to appreciate the person we were made to be. It's an easy trap to fall in to.

My hope is to help women see that they are good enough, just as they are. We all should aim to be the best us that we can be. But aiming to be like others will just wear us out.

Don't ask me how I intend to convey this message to the women of the world. I don't even know how I'm going to convey this message to those who read my blog (by the way, THANK YOU for reading!! I'm still stunned that people are reading what I have to say!!!!).

I just know that this message is one of the major reasons why I blog. And I wanted you to know.
