It’s time for my Friday Featurettes to start back up for the New Year! I’m proud to announce Kim, from Baby Feet, is my first Featurette for the 2011 year! I love her! She gave a link down below to one of my favorite posts she’s ever written, but I also love her posts about Josh Groban. I hope you will leave some comment love here, but most importantly I hope you will go by her blog and leave comments there!
Well, how to start? Iâ€™m Kim and Iâ€™m so excited to be a featurette here at Mommy Monologueâ€™s. Kateâ€™s blog is one of the first blogs I ever read, so now actually being on it is crazy.
My blog is Baby Feet and itâ€™s been up and running since April of 2010, so Iâ€™m a baby in the blogging world. That makes being here even more insane! I have a couple blogs I must read every day. Hormonal Imbalances, Momma Kiss, and of course Mommy Monologues! From these blogs Iâ€™ve learned a valuable blogging lesson that I absolutely swear by. Be honest. Iâ€™ve found these woman to be shockingly honest. And that is what brings me back to them day after day.
They remind me that blogging is not about the world (*cough* my 57 followers *cough*) thinking my life is some perfect place, but instead about sharing the truth — whether it be funny, sarcastic, sad or weird. With that in mind, this imperfect place is where Iâ€™m sending you to as my favorite post.
Where I Lose Myself is one of the first posts I ever wrote, so itâ€™s raw and unpolished, but it conveys exactly the message I need to say. I blog to share my story into major clinical depression and clawing my way out of it. I try to tell how I am healing, what I lost and how I am gaining my life back. I pray that by sharing my story I will help somebody else out there either get help or realize they are not alone. I was convinced I was alone, convinced that every other mom in the world was perfect and I was the lone, imperfect, failure of a mom.
I was sure that I was only person ever not to be capable of getting out of bed, of having fun, of simply breathing. As I have come out of my depression my life is again full of color and wonder, laughter and fun. I see the joy in my children and the love of my husband for the first time in over two years.
I share this with all of you so you can see that healing is possible. That fun, laughter and love have come out on top.
