Welcome to the Blog!

I’ve always been curious to know if folks wake up and just decide to blog. I’m the inquisitive type so a few questions come to mind: Are you  automatically considered a “blogger” if you decide to blog? How do bloggers decide what to blog about? How do they know if anyone is interested or cares for that matter? Is the blogger market becoming saturated? After pondering these questions and more I decided that the only way that I was going to find these answers was to take a stab at it. When I presented the idea about starting a blog to my sisters, I wasn’t sure what their initial thoughts would be but I was convinced that blogging with them would be interesting to say the least. We come from the same background. Same household. Same parents. We were given the same opportunities but we were all taught that everyone is given 24 hours in a day. The question we were always presented with as children was,  “What are you going to do with your time?” As women we all spend our day doing very different things. The things that we spend the majority of our time doing are the things that we are the most passionate about. SO why not blog about that? This lead to the conception of The Ford G.I.R.L.S. I think that many people know us and identify with us as sisters or as the Ford girls, but I think that people will be surprised to see how we differ in our opinions, our thoughts about life, family, work, relationships, leisure, and so on.

 

Despite our differences we all share an ambition and a drive to be the best version of ourselves that we can be and to help others do the same. We know that we are not operating in our own strength. We know that we have the Grace and Favor of God. I have personally learned the importance of transparency. I’ve learned that it is ok to say “I’m not ok.” I’ve learned that getting help is OK. I’ve learned that I have found strength through my struggles and that everyone struggles so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I am learning how to become confident in myself. It took awhile and I’ve experienced  A LOT but I owe it to myself and my daughter, who watches me very closely, to live a life of purpose. This is what I hope to share through this platform. I hope you join my sisters and I for the ride!
