Hey guys! Welcome to “Raising Wisdom”!!
If you are reading this, I hope that you can FEEL the excitement running through my veins. This passion project has been in the works for quite some time and I’m elated to officially share this journey with you all.
I first thought about starting a blog when I was pregnant with my daughter, Steele. I, like many other first time moms, would scour the internet looking for information to help ease all of the questions, doubts and FEARS I had about becoming a parent. As excited as I was, there was so much information to take in. The internet can be an intimidating place when you don’t even know where to start…how do I choose the right doctor/hospital? What pre-natal vitamins/supplements do I take? What should my diet look like? How much weight should I gain? Where can I buy stylish maternity clothes? I could go on for days with the amount of questions I had and sometimes found the information a bit contradictory and not always the most helpful. My thought, as I crossed into my third trimester of pregnancy, was that I wish I would have documented my journey and shared the information that I was taking in.
Like all of us, we sometimes get distracted with the day-to-day of our personal lives that we fail to take the initiative needed to step outside of the box (I’m sure you can all relate – I mean, being a multi-tasking mom is far from easy). But nevertheless, now 2 years and several months later – I’m finally kicking this thing off and am thankful to finally be able to share not only my experience, but also the journey of many other mamas I know. Let’s all thank Shonda Rhimes & her book “Year of Yes” for the initial spark & lighting the fire under my a$$. Ultimately what I took from her book was this – “Be A Doer”:
- Keep DOING something
- SEIZE the next opportunity
- Stay OPEN
- Try something NEW
So that’s exactly what I decided to do. To put it frank – this blog is for the Real, Raw, Rockstar moms….that means YOU! This platform is here to create positive conversation & dialogue, to be a place for information sharing & storytelling and a space to show appreciation for the WOMAN in all of us. My goal is that we can celebrate our differences as women & mothers and find inspiration & solace in one another, knowing that we are learning and growing from each other.
So while you’re here – laugh a little, cry a little, unplug, unwind, relax, relate, release & enjoy!
Love & Light,
P.S. For those wondering, Wisdom is my daughter’s last name, so the name of this blog is a play on raising her (Steele Wisdom) & my future children 🙂
