I could hardly believe it. The “need to renew your domain” email came through to my email recently and it made me stop in my tracks. Really? Had it really been 1 year since I registered Gravity Mom? Where did the time go?! In some ways it feels like I just started Gravity Mom, in other ways it feels like I’ve been blogging GM for years. Starting ‘Gravity Mom’ was filled with trepidation, uncertainty and doubt. It was those closest to me who supported me and held me hand while I took these beautiful steps toward what is now ‘Gravity Mom’.
I will never forget the day I officially registered Gravity Mom. I’m so thankful for my husband, without him all my crazy ideas just wouldn’t be possible. He is my #1 fan and keeps me going when I just don’t think I can…keep….going. I have to give him major kudos because Gravity Mom was his idea. There were so many choices I had to make and I had no idea which path to take until I got this text from him:
Yes, I saved the text. Yes it was somewhat life changing because in that moment, I just knew the path that had been laid before me. My husband and I spent countless hours excitedly sketching our ideas for what Gravity Mom would become. To see it come to life over the past year has been a dream come true. In retrospect, I don’t think life is about being “happy”, I think it’s about stepping out into the great unknown and challenging yourself to live your dreams. In those moments, you find peace, discover how brave you really are and ultimately becoming who you were meant to be. YOU make those choices. No one can do it for you and no one can take that away from you. I have learned so much over the past year and I also have to give BIG thanks to you, my readers, my friends. I cannot tell you how inspiring it has been to get to know so many of you over the past year. You’ve supported me along the way and that has meant more to me than you know. Thank you.
Now, I want to challenge you to find YOUR Brave. Go out and be courageous and follow your dreams. Keep moving forward, even when it means going into new territory that makes you feel uncomfortable. These steps require bravery and courage in order to become all we were meant to be.
This Thanksgiving, I look back at the past year and can’t help but feel so incredible blessed and thankful. What are your dreams? What do you hope to accomplish in the next year?
