MomME Time

Let your light shine, mommy.

I started this blog about a year ago shortly after I gave birth. I wanted to have something to call my own, a happy habit I can do during my “me time”. I turned to writing. Before this blog, I was already into the written word. Writing is a way for my soul to purge and my creative spirit to flourish. I get attuned to myself when I write.

I thought I’d give blogging a go since writing on my journal would probably be difficult while breastfeeding every hour or so.I started with a post about my pregnancy and thoughts on motherhood. Since then, the topics have been varied but the goals are still the same.
 
I made this blog in the hope that I could connect with mommies out there who haven’t quite figured things out yet. I made this blog to tell them that I’m in the same boat and it’s ok. Being a new mom, things can be challenging or downright overwhelming at times. But somehow, with a warm bath, a prayer and a loving hug, we continue to thrive.

This blog was also created to let the stay at home moms (SAHMs) like me know that we are NOT just SAHMs. We are more than the roles we play. We need to continue exploring the corners of our being and living our passion even just in the comforts of our homes. Our influence extends beyond our homes. We can make a difference in our communities just by sharing our talents and taking time to connect with people around us .
 
It is my dream that the articles I write be something these moms look forward to reading when they are tired from housework, want to read something light or just need some company during wee hours while feeding their little ones. I want them to give themselves the freedom to try something new, the courage to accept their flaws and the enthusiasm to keep exploring beyond their mommy duties.I’d love for them to go for the things that make them happier and to grab opportunities to better themselves without that so called “mommy guilt” casting a shadow over their paths.

I read somewhere that great articles do one or more of three things: inform, entertain and onspire.I will remember this every time I write a post.
I also aspire to get to know you more, my dear reader to learn more about the things you love and share your bliss about being a mommy and more. 

 
 
Let your let shine, mommy. The world needs it. You deserve it.

  1. Blogging is a form of release for me too.

  2. D

    Thank you for this post, like you I also use my blog as an outlet whenever I need vent out or get something out of my chest.

  3. Blogging is my way of relaxing and extending our dining table with the world.I'm hoping to inspire mommies to cook more at home.

  4. I was nodding my head in agreement the whole time while reading your post. It's exactly my sentiment (and my reason for blogging) and I suppose of many other mom bloggers too. May our light shine, mommies! 🙂

  5. other mommy bloggers became my inspiration to start my own blog. It serves as my outlet where I can share things I learned along the way and to bring inspiration to others as well. I am also glad I met mommy bloggers that eventually became my friends too!

  6. Ah, motherhood! We all have our own stories and mommy-guilt to tell. My son is already 9 years old, but he never wants me out of his sight, even just to do grocery shopping. I can't resist telling him that I also need time alone for myself. Waah! — Maria Teresa Figuerres

  7. Yes, may the light of God shine upon you, mommy madz, as you write!

  8. I got inspired to blog because of pregnancy too. I had a lot of struggles, and reading mommy blogs helped me feel that what I'm going through is just normal.

    I wanted to share the same inspiration that I experienced, so I started mine. I hope little by little, I also get to touch other people's hearts and make them feel that they're not alone, just like what I felt by reading other people's blogs. 🙂

  9. I started blogging when my little one was turning a year and it has been amazing since then. I blog to reconnect with myself, and like you, I also aspire to inform, entertain, but most importantly, to inspire, other mums out there.

  10. I realize now that blogging has done so much for me. Not just me but for my family as well. It's also something I'll have for myself when my kids are on their own. Makes me sad sometimes since my two teens are almost headed in that direction.

  11. True!Rollercoaster ang pagiging mommy haha! I think mahirap rin maging working mommy.I could just imagine because my daughter kept crying when I left for an event.What more if everyday for work? But regardless of the struggles we have as SAHM, WAHM or working mommies, we keep going for our children.

  13. I guess most moms here have something in common- start a blog the same time they embrace motherhood. I too started my own years ago to document lessons learned from my boys. All along, I thought I would impart to my boys lessons in order for them to grow decent and responsible, but it turns out that I learn more from them.

  14. I started my blog too when I was pregnant with my third child. It was really more of a personal journal too then but over the last five years has evolved so much. It was through blogging that I met a lot of my mommy friends now. 🙂

  15. I actually have the same goals as yours, Mommy. It really helps to know that you are not alone. Most mothers go through a lot of things in common and it's a comfort, somehow, to know that other moms out there went through the same thing and survived. It gives confidence and support, in a way.

  16. blogging is my online diary too. Just like you I want to inform, entertain and inspire other mommies out there too.

  17. I think being concerned about our children will always be part of motherhood. It's just that we also need to take care of ourselves and do what makes us happy.My daughter is still young but when she's a bit older I'd love to try that too!

  18. I'm a first time mom as well. It is indeed overwhelming sometimes! There are times that I would like to go on my own, but then I would feel guilty that I left my little one at home (she's taken care of by her Lola). Ganito pala feeling nun. Paano pa kaya ang working moms? It must be a struggle for them. Kudos to working moms out there! 🙂 Being a mom also made me sensitive over things. Sometimes just looking at my child would make me tear up! I would think about when she grows up, her 7th birthday, and then 18th… Ang OA ko minsan! Lol! But nonetheless, I love being a mom! 🙂

  19. Your post really hit home for me. I just recently came from a trip to baguio, solo trip with co-bloggers, and it was the first time in 5 years that I had to go somewhere on my own choice, but with the circumstance that I go without the kids. I can't help really but to bringing all the mommy guilt and worries with me on the trip, although I did enjoy said travel, and learned new things about myself aside from being a dutiful wife and caring SAHM… God knows I really tried not to worry much, but I guess I still have a long road to travel when it comes to letting my light shine and letting go of the mom guilt once in a while 🙂
