I have a blog post called Do It Scared. It’s a motto for my own life that I encourage my children towards. I have worked hard to overcome so much fear that I refuse to let them, or I, be held back because of it. Fear is an enemy in our home. A foe that must always be reconciled face to face.
The easy road doesn’t lead to anything fulfilling. It equates to giving up dreams, taking abuse from others, sulking in our rooms and settling for jobs that merely pay the bills.
What are you focusing on? What are you pushing down and refusing to face? Pushing down the grief only saves it for later and it doesn’t get easier to face at a later date. It bleeds into the other areas of your life. It can grow like a cancer. You think you’re numbing the pain, but eventually all of you is numb.
Wendy is a stay at home mom of four tiny humans ranging from ages one to nine and the wife of a former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant.

She has always filled journals with poetry but nearly moments after learning her first three guitar chords she was writing songs. Her passions are two-fold. Write music that’s relatable and connect with the broken or downtrodden. She just plain loves people.
