Trust The Process!!!



Hey Girl,

 

How you doing today? Is life treating you well? If so, congratulations. It is always so nice to be able to reflect and think: “Man life is good right now.” If things aren’t going so great, you already know what I am about to say. . . That’s okay, because this season is only temporary and it won’t last always. Speaking of seasons, I want to talk with you today about the seasons of life and how we have to trust the process. Follow me today, there is a point to what I am about to share, I promise!

 

Recently, I announced to my other newsletter group that I was making a complete change and shift in my writings and what they are used to receiving from me on a monthly basis. It is something that I have wanted to do for nearly a year and a half. I actually announced this shift to them in December 2022, but I never REALLY changed my content. Despite the fact that I realized at that time that my heart and passion in writing was about everything prenatal, perinatal, postpartum, and mommyhood in general. I was simply scared to truly shift what I wrote about, so I kept going with the 2 newsletters, although my heart was pulled to only writing one. . . this one. Last month, I was scared to finally tell my subscribers that they would be merged with this newsletter, but I did it and told them that I hoped that they would stick around to hear what I have to say.

 

As I reflected on this change and why it was sooooooo hard for me to finally pivot with my other newsletter subscribers, it was because that newsletter holds a special place in my heart based off the season of life that I was in when I started newsletter (and as I continued it). I had quit my job and entered fully into self-employment. I had experienced several pregnancy losses during those years of writing that newsletter, and that newsletter is one of the thing that I could nurture that thrived and stayed alive. And even now, when writing that “final” newsletter last month, I am in full throttle motherhood with a 5 year old and a 2.5 year old. I am working a bit more, I am writing a bit more (outside of this newsletter), and I am just in a different season of womanhood, motherhood, careerhood, and all the other hoods lol. And although the busyness of the season is something I am used to, I was scared to step FULLY into what I am being called too, which is a complete pivot. But I took the chance to simply shift, announce that shift, and stick to that shift. And guess what?

 

I felt so much better the minute I clicked send. It was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Why? Because I gave myself permission to stand firm in the soil where I am currently planted. It was a process, but it was a necessary process for me to go through the fear and the doubt. I faced my fears of losing subscribers, which is a common process with any newsletter/email list. But what THAT newsletter of 7, nearly 8 years meant to me, was something I was scared to lose. However, because I took that risk on myself and stood confidently in the soil that I am standing in, I was able to see that I didn’t lose anything, but only gained something. I gained freedom in walking in my purpose. I gained knowledge about how deep my passion for prenatal, perinatal, postpartum, and motherhood issues runs. And I learned that people want to hear what I have to say. No one unsubscribed after I made the announcement, which meant that again, people actually want to hear what I have to say about this thing called motherhood.

 

So with that said, I will announce a few things here:

  1. This newsletter will now be released on the Friday after the 15th of the month (good news you get two newsletters this month). Now listen, please don’t come for me lol. I know I have been changing these dates on you all, but I PROMISE I believe this is the last change. I am in the habit of writing that newsletter and sending it out around the 15th of each month, and have been doing that for the past 7.5 years, so I trust that this change will not result in more date release changes. The structure may change a bit different, but I am hoping not the date. So expect to see another newsletter in your inbox in about 2 weeks.

  2. The most important announcement of today. . .

 

Trust the process you are in and trust yourself to make the right decisions. Life is a process and is ever evolving, but we have to trust this process and always keep the faith. With motherhood, there is always something to worry about and mistrust. But when you keep the faith, you will see that whatever process you were (or are) in needed to happen for you to reach your goal and destiny.

 

As moms we go through a lot! We go through pregnancy. We go through welcoming a newborn. We learn how to parent that newborn. We then watch that newborn become a toddler, to a kid, to a teen, and to an adult. But as we go through these things, we have to remember that motherhood is a process, life is a process, but it is a process we are made for and built for. So trust the process, because Girl you got this! Now go and do something that will help you Bloom Into Your Best Self. . .
