Our Keepsake Journal is Here! 🎉

She’s been a “sorry” girl. The girl who says sorry for being in the way. The girl who apologizes any time people seem upset. The girl who always assumes she has done something wrong and can never do anything right.

The girl who has apologized for saying no. The girl who has tried to earn her love rather than just being loved.

But she’s tired of being a “sorry” girl.

For passing people in the aisle at the grocery store and apologizing. For not being able to make every get-together. For doing what is right for her even if it isn’t right for everyone else. For ever wanting to lie in bed all day when her thoughts are all-consuming.

She’s been saying sorry her entire life. And she’s done being sorry for taking up space. She’s done being sorry for simply being her beautiful and unique self.

I’m an open book. For some, that’s hard to handle. It’s hard because it’s real and it’s raw. I don’t live my life behind secrets. If you want to know, ask. I won’t make up a lie to make you feel better. My time is too precious for that. I sometimes come across as abrasive. I call things like I see them. I’m not rude or overly blunt, but I also don’t try to sugarcoat the truth to make it more palatable for everyone.  Decisions . . . I can make them. There’s too much time wasted on indecisiveness. I’ll hear...

I’d Tell You How I Really Feel but You Don’t Really Want to Know

It’s often said that when it comes to relationships, communication is key. And I agree with this for most people. But for me, I’m not sure complete communication is the answer. Verbally communicating my feelings has never been easy as I’ve been told I can come across as harsh or blunt, and people have even joked with me, “Wow, tell us how you really feel.” And that’s the thing. I did. I did say how I really felt, in the gentlest way I knew how, but sometimes the truth is not gentle. Sometimes truth is painful, no matter how many...

Moms, Stop Apologizing

Moms, Stop Apologizing www.herviewfromhome.com

“Sorry for the lack of make-up and mom bun.” “Please look past the mess on the floor.” “Don’t mind the spit-up in my hair.” “Sorry I have a sink full of dishes at the moment.” “Excuse the toilet that hasn’t been scrubbed in a couple of days.” Whether it’s a picture that is posted to social media, or a friend coming over to our house, women do nothing but apologize for being REAL. For not having all the time in the world. For being US. For being YOU. For being a MOM. Ladies, we are moms. We all get it....
