Getting pregnant was the last thing on my mind in 2016, I never expected to because first of all it was not planned and my relationship was complicated. I knew being a mother was something in my future when I got married and all but not then. Being 23 years old one would say I was old enough but for me I was just starting out life. I had just being employed by my current employer and for me that was new found freedom because I couldn’t depend on my parents anymore (or so I thought). I had also started my events company so I knew that year would be very busy.
Falling into depression was my lowest point in life. I had so many thoughts in my head and all I wanted was for them to stop. I remember at some point I contemplated suicide (story for another day) and life was very hard then. I wrote to get my thoughts out of my head. I never thought that I would get better. I remember even going to therapy because the thoughts in my head were too much. Writing became a getaway for me.
My first blog (iammyownboss) was an escape for me, from my thoughts, and there I told stories of how life was for me at that moment and how God had always come through for me. Telling my story of being pregnant was such a big deal for me because here I was opening up to people who didn’t even know me. People who could maybe care less about what I was going through. But I thank God that that wasn’t my intention. My hope was that my story would inspire even one person. I hoped that one person would read my story and be reminded that there is a God in heaven and that He is always here for us.
I initially started this blog to write anything but getting pregnant was a blessing in disguise because it made me go back to the drawing board. All I ever want to do now is inspire and motivate. That this blog is a source of inspirational even if it’s just to one person.
Looking back, I am glad that I started this blog. I am grateful that lives have been changed through this blog especially those single moms who have confided in me. I really do not take it for granted. When I thought being pregnant would be the worst thing in my life, it turned out to being the best thing in my life. My son is everything I ever prayed for.
This is to encourage you that no matter what you are going through, this is not the end. Isaiah 43: 18-19 reminds us a new thing is coming
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. “
Don’t give up just yet. God will do exceedingly abundantly more than you can ever think, ask or even imagine (Ephesians 3:20). He says He will never leave us nor forsake us. Take Him on His promises. I am an example of God’s faithfulness and Grace.
This is why I started this blog. To inspire and motivate. Your story will always be an inspiration to someone else. Let the world hear your story. I would love to have set a platform for such stories, DM me on IG (Eve_Muchoki) or even email me (email@example.com) if you would like to remain anonymous I got you. Be an inspiration to someone else.
