I Am A Mom And A Budding Blogger, #MomAndMore

I am on a lookout for challenges in the coming weeks and my ultimate aim to turn into an author from a blogger.

Talking about your own story is always an unnerving task. Here I am today sharing my story and I don’t know where to start from.

So, I start with my school and college days. I was a bright student and scored good marks. I liked to participate and explore co-curricular domains as well whether it was singing, essay writing, poem recitation, debate, quiz and what not. And I registered my presence all over as a winner.

As I entered college, I don’t why I restricted myself to very few activities and concentrated more on studies. Maybe I was worried about my result as I scored below my expectations in my school exams. I completed my post graduation with distinction and was very happy that I achieved what I wanted. I also cleared the entrance exam for B.Ed and was all set to pursue my career when suddenly my life took a U-turn & I got married in 2010.

I couldn’t complete B.Ed because I had to move to another city with my husband. It was a decision taken in haste and I still regret that I could not complete my education. I thought I would complete after my marriage but I was wrong.

Another big change was waiting for me. I was pregnant after a few months of my marriage and In 2011 I was blessed with a princess and now I was a mom.

From being a student a year back, I was suddenly a mother by the year ended. My role was changing so dramatically. I forgot about my goals and my focus completely shifted to my daughter. When she was 1 year old, she suffered from pneumonia and her health took priority for the next 6 years. Although recovered now, her sensitivity towards infections is still high. Meanwhile, her baby brother arrived when she turned 5 years old and the whole cycle started all over again.

After my son turned 2 years old, I decided to start thinking about myself again. A long break from my passion for reading and teaching disturbed me most of the time. But I managed to come out of it somehow. I was not sure about my career. I wanted to balance both work and family with it.

I loved reading and writing. I used to write a diary about my experiences, my emotions and the impressions that were rooted in my subconscious mind… and so I started writing.

I created my account on WordPress but I was not regular on it. I wrote 2 initial posts and then there was a break of 6 months, where I felt frustrated an puzzled at my situation. But In the middle of November 2018, I convinced myself that if I do not thinking about myself now, then I will recede in a shell and it will be very difficult for me to come out of there.

Thankfully I prepared myself to fight this battle and I started writing back to back, daily or atleast three to four times in a week. The beginning was not so good but I made my way and never gave up. Gradually I was gaining my confidence.

And In the starting of the year 2019 with lots of Ifs and buts, I prepared myself to take part in the blogging challenge named SuperBloggerChallenge. I participated in three challenges back to back.

This was not easy for me but I was mentally prepared for anything. This determination helped me a lot. And I am glad to announce that I was declared as a winner “Most Promising Blogger” in SuperbloggerChallenge 2019.

Now I have a plan for everything in my mind and taking it one step at a time. I am on a lookout for challenges in the coming weeks and my ultimate aim to turn into an author from a blogger. This is my story. This is the story of a budding blogger with ‘author dreams’ in her eyes.

My mantra is, “If there is a will, there is a way always.”
