My name is Vinma, founder of this blog, Momless Mom.
The name Momless Mom is an inspiration from my own Mother who left me for reasons unknown thirty some years ago. She is still very much emotionally unavailable and largely missing from my life. Before you ask, yes she is alive last I checked.
But this blog does not carry any remnants or dark side of my life living as a Motherless daughter, rest assured. There is no negativity, no sadness, grief associated that I will bombard you with. Well except on Mothers days every year and on days when I miss her too much. Then yeah, I write some things which I hope you would read.
But apart from that, we are talking good stuff in this space. Let me get to the nitty gritty.
Your interest in Self-care and Self-love brought you here and I am glad you found me. Hooray to you for finally taking that step to wellness. I cannot be more proud!
Although Momless Mom started as a Parenting blog later evolving to Lifestyle blog for busy families, now this space is exclusively dedicated to Mental Wellness, Self-care and Personal growth for Moms, Women in general.
I am happy the way my blog has grown since 2012 serving the Moms community in all ways possible.
If you are here looking for support on your Motherhood journey, consider this your safe space where you will meet kindred spirits.
Soul sisters who are fellow burned out moms with their life on autopilot running on 100 mph.
We are often neglectful of mental wellness and self-care. We spend our days in Zombie state barely getting through family responsibilities.
We crash and burn trying to be the best parent we could possibly be but with no regard for our needs or care.
Question is this.
Could WE be saved from this predicament?
Well, the answer is YES. We can be saved. IF we are willing to explore and entertain the idea of self-care. Mind you, Self-care is not some fancy word everyone gush about in women empowerment meetings and such. It is actually a thing. A way of living that all should practice for the ultimate wellness of mind, body, and soul. Now if you are a Mom with a lot on your plate and hardly any time to take deep breaths and relax, guess what? Your need for Self-care has become tenfold crucial. Why is that? Why is it so important that you should drop everything right now and listen to me?
Well sister, Think about it for a sec here.
Are you the best version of who you can be at this point in your life?
Are you the BEST mom to your children, BEST wife, BEST sister or daughter?
You might answer YES to this question and I am happy if you do. It can mean only one thing. That you are successful in juggling it all as you always do. Which is great! But at what cost? At the cost of your truth, happiness, and soul sustenance?
When was the last time that you truly focused on yourself? That you have done something for yourself that left you all relaxed and happy?
Makes me sad even as I ask you this. Because I have been at a low point in my life once. I didn’t know I EXISTED back then. To me, I was never in the picture, it was ALWAYS others. I was busy meeting other people’s needs and hardly ever stopped to acknowledge myself. I never asked HER/ME what I wanted or what I liked. I didn’t care if HER in me was happy or sad or lived. A breaking point arrived eventually and I had to make a choice. And hell yes, My choice was ME! I picked ME. And then Mama, there was no turning back.
I could go and on about how things turn around for me and how I arrived where I am right now both mentally and physically. But an About Me page is no place for that obviously and I have no plan to bore you to death with all the details yet.
So that’s why I set up shop here so we can talk about our self-care and self-discovery stories for the rest of our happy lives. Yes, I will serve coffee, wine or whatever the heck you want. All I ask is to leave all your responsibilities at the door and only bring YOURSELF inside. We are gonna have so much fun!
I am humbled to be your Self-care advocate and soul sister in this journey and hope to hold your hands the entire time!
