I came. I saw. I'm over it.
There's a quote by Ghandi that says "Be the change you wish you see in the world." (You know shit's going to get deep if I start with a Ghandi quote, right?)
For three years, it's been my mission to encourage, lighten the loads of and make moms laugh. I've published hundreds of videos, reached millions of people, talked on thousands of hours of live feeds, created a planner, hosted four mom retreats and published two books.
I'm fucking exhausted, ya'll. Not from the work, but from the negativity.
But I've done all of that this far because of you. The letters, emails, comments and messages that you've sent me over those three years, sharing how much seeing my stupid face helps you get through your day... it means the absolute WORLD to me.
I've always tried to be kind, helpful and funny (unless someone was being a twat, of course) in whatever I did and I hope that, in some small way, I impacted your life in a positive way.
See, what Ghandi neglected to tell us is that being the CHANGE comes with a LOT of bullshit. Like, A LOT. Because, apparently SOME of the world doesn't give a flying shit what good you're trying to do.
Some people are Hell-bent on being miserable, no matter what your intentions are. They will do everything in their power to make you just as miserable as they are... which is pretty fucking disgusting and I hope each and every one of them gets a horrible case of the vag-crabs and also breaks both of their arms on the very same day.
With that said, TheDrunkMom will cease to exist in her current form. I'm taking some time off to tend to the kiddos starting school and to try on being a trophy wife for a change. I might even build some shit out of wood in the garage, plant a pumpkin patch and maybe in the Fall I can get all excited about the pumpkin spice bullshittery that everyone seems to adore... who knows?
If I decide to come back into the online world, it will not be as TheDrunkMom. I've evolved and changed a lot in the 3 years since I began, so the name is really not a fit for me anymore.
This decision has not been an easy one. It's been months in the making and has recently come with a lot of tears and sadness but it's the right one for me right now.
Maybe I'll see you in my next adventure <3
