Sorry, Not Sorry Anymore
If you're like us, you get to a certain age and you start asking yourself lots of questions. You ask your girlfriends, your partner, really anyone who'll listen: "Am I crazy to feel this way?" You blame these feelings on everything from lack of sleep to changing hormones, your work, your kids or, God forbid, your age! But ultimately you realize it's just you and you have this overwhelming desire for a change or something different, maybe something new? But what? And how? You have no clue where to start, so you do nothing. Or you might do a little something: go gluten free, try Orange Theory, get your hormones checked. But, in the end, life keeps moving along or you wait for life to send you a big wake up call or a sign. Or, if you are one of the lucky ones, you find bravery you didn't know you had and take a big leap of faith!
Why is it that women often find themselves apologizing for things they shouldn't feel sorry about? Why do we feel bad for wanting a change or an escape? It's an epidemic amongst women or at least the women we've been talking too. And, well, we've had enough.
We are two full-time working moms and wives with different viewpoints and passions. But we share the desire to speak our minds. And we think we have perspectives worth sharing. We want to inspire other women to STOP apologizing for who they are and what they believe and encourage them to just be their authentic selves. We're not sure where this road will lead, but we are talking about it. So Unapologetically.
I'm a dreamer and a thinker.
A non-stop overthinker! People will tell you I am creative, and I am but it's not about one specific thing. I am just always thinking about EVERYTHING: the "What ifs and "What abouts" ... and it's exhausting.
I am a wife, mother, stepmother, sister, aunt and marketing worker bee. I am OCD when it comes to keeping my home clean because it's probably the one thing I can somewhat control in my life. I'm a total homebody.
I'm happiest in my bed reading a book or, God forbid, taking a nap! I love naps! 'm looking for my 2.0 in life at the moment. I'm not sure what that is, but something needs to change. I need a change, and I am soul searching my way to what's next.
People who kind of know me think I'm super outgoing. Those who really know me, know better. What I love more than anything is being at home with my family, cooking for friends and burying my nose in a book. I wasn't sure I'd ever have kids. Or have a healthy, loving relationship. But after fighting like crazy, I'm incredibly lucky to have both. I treasure my family and friends. There's nothing I wouldn't do for them.
