Here it is, my new adventure! While being stuck at home during this whole pandemic, I started to stress out because I was suddenly at home with a toddler, all day long, trying to get my work done at the same time. Do you know how hard it is to entertain a toddler & work full time, at home, ALL DAY long?! I was going slowly insane. I did what any normal, sane person does…I hit up the internet and found out that there is a whole new world, waiting to make it my own.
Diving into the internet, looking for ideas to keep the toddler entertained and hoping to find other parents like me. I wanted to know that I wasn’t alone in this and that I wasn’t the only person going through it. What I found was something amazing, an entire community dedicated to moms, families, etc.
I’ve read that if something scares you, then it might be a good thing to try. Well I’ve decided to try something that completely terrifies me. If you know me, you know that I am not very forthcoming with information, I am usually a very private person, so the thought of opening up my whole life to complete strangers terrified me (understatement of the year). I’ve decided to start a blog and put myself out there for all the world to see…my ups and downs and everything in between. I wanted to create a space that will hopefully help other people, families and partners understand
After a few weeks of ‘researching’, I decided that I was going to start my own blog and put my own spin on the things. People who know me will tell you it takes FOREVER to get a decision out of me…this is 100% true; Normally I am not an impulse decision-making person (impulse shopping, 100% but not on things that have the potential to change my life). But I realized, that in order to actually live my life, I have to step out of my comfort zone and at least give it a shot. So, after a lot of back and forth here it is, This Hilairious Life, was born.
Once I made the decision to actually go through with this, I went balls to the wall. For someone who is an extremely passionate person when I put my mind to something, I wanted to make sure that my best foot is put forward. I started my research to see what I could offer in a way that was ‘me’. I watched videos, read articles and anything that I could get my hands on to teach me how to do this. I spent weeks setting up the backend of my blog along with laying out the content. Always, in the back of my mind is the thought ‘what if no one reads this?’ I don’t like not being good at things, but then I realized that it doesn’t really matter if no one reads it, I just have to actually do this…and prove to myself that I can do it.
The community that I have found, along with other amazing women who have taken the plunge into the blogging world has inspired me to join them putting my own spin on it.
Being a full time commuting (usually) mama to an adorable toddler boy, who is just hitting the terrible twos (I did not know that I gave birth to a gremlin!). On This Hilairious Life, you’ll find posts about everyday life, from commuting favorites to a day in the life and every little thing in between. You’ll get to experience everything that we do as we go through it.
So, strap on a seatbelt (safety first!) and hold on tight to this ride as we navigate This Hilairious Life together.
