I wonder what it would really be like to sit down and have a real cup of coffee with you.
Like, sit down with a room full of my readers and pick their brains.
I think there would be a lot of "How do you..." questions from me to you...
but more than likely, we would probably just shoot the breeze.
I think that starting and keeping friendships with fellow bloggers and/or my readers is easier.
I think about the women I've met through blogging...
I text them...
Email with them...
"See" them all pretty much everyday.
It's an easy relationship because you don't have to really figure out when you can see each other.
Bloggers are always there.
I lose myself in this blogging world and forget that there is a real life out there.
Yes, I pay attention...of course, I do.
I'm a wife.
I'm a mom.
I'm an employee & co-worker.
I'm a best friend.
But, I'm also a blogger..
...and I need to learn that being a blogger doesn't mean that that is all I am.
I read other people's blogs and think,
"Wow...that's some good writing!"
And I know that I am that good of writer, too.
Even if I don't have the numbers, page views, high amount of comments...
I'm still good enough.
I doubt myself, though.
Am I good wife?
Am I an attentive mother?
Do I do enough in the house?
Will I continue being better than yesterday?
Will I ever just be happy with who I am already?!
But that's just
a lot of the time…
I know that I am awesome and have flaws.
I know that those flaws make me who I am
And also, I find comfort in saying to myself:
"GOD doesn't make mistakes, remember?
You can do all things 'cause He's got your back!"
Have more coffee!
Alissa will hook you up.
Go grab a cup with her and many other blogger-ettes!
I'm over at
The Trophy Wife in Training
I did a Guest Post for her : )


  1. You are such a beautiful writer-- and this was such a beautiful post. It's normal to have those doubts about ourselves, but you're right. You're still awesome :)

  2. I am glad those feelings are only sometimes. Because you know how I feel about you, and there is nothing "sometimes" about those feelings. You are an incredible writer. You manage to make me understand exactly what you are trying to convey, with just a few words. You are special.

  3. I love this post and your heart. I think I sometimes wonder many of those things about myself. Hope to see you soon!! xoxo

  4. I wonder these things all the time, so it's nice to see someone else put them on paper. It makes me feel a little less guilty when one of the balls drop! :)

    Stopping by from Alissa's!

  5. Nay! I'm stalking you via GFC now :) This is Natalie's friend that stalked you yesterday on twitter!
    Your post is absolutely beautiful! I love your writing!
    I have no idea where you live, but I'd love to get some coffee with you sometime! :) It would be fun! With Natalie too!


  6. Hey! I'm over from coffee date & I just loved your post. I think that is something that all of us deal with all the time, you just wrote it out so perfectly! :-) I have made a recent connection with another blogger all the way in California & I'm in Louisiana and she has become one of my new best friends. We text everyday & it is so neat how we are so much alike and met through here. I'm a new follower of your blog & can't wait to read more! ~Stacy :-)

  7. the world of bloggers it is hard to remember to enjoy IRL. IRL doesn't understand the pull of writing. It is a hard one to balance.
