If you follow our social pages, you may have seen my post the other day about changes coming. If not, I basically said to get ready for some changes – more realness, hard conversations, more stories, interviews on our podcast, and so much more. I haven’t done exactly what I set out to do so far and at this point, I need to make some changes.
When I set out to start Sassy Mamaroo, I had this idea in my head to share my stories, experiences, and everything in between in my life. I also wanted to share the stories, experiences, and everything in between of other mothers and women. I can only share so much of my own experiences and I can’t share what I haven’t been through, that’s where others come in. I also wanted to talk about everything. EVERYTHING. No topic is off limits. I set out to make taboo topics normal, to laugh and cry knowing we are not alone. To just do something different.
Over the last almost 2 years, I feel I have done a decent job doing what I set out to do. As with anything else, my life did get in the way and a majority of the last year or so has been really motherhood focused. That’s my life, I’m a mom and with quarantine that’s been my primary job. It wasn’t meant to be so motherhood focused. I wanted to talk about everything motherhood and womanhood. Give people a chance to share their stories, experiences, help educate us all.
Also along the way I have found I am not being 100% me. I am in no way being fake or untruthful, but I am censoring the parts of be I feared would make people not want to be here. Everything you have read or seen has been true to who I am. However, I’ve shied away from using any bad language or talking about some of the things I really wanted to talk about. I did this because I was afraid. I am no longer afraid. If I am going to keep doing this, I need to do fully what I set out to do. I know for some that may be a bit much and for others they may enjoy it.
Changes that are coming. More interviews. More guest posts. More educational blogs and podcasts. More life stories. More conversations about the taboo and tough topics we constantly sweep under the rug. Let’s talk about it all and be real about it. No more being shy or stopping myself from being true to what I set out to do. If I lose people along the way, so be it. I set out on a mission and I’m not quite there yet. I want to be there. Thank you.
