Attention City Girl Readers:

Recently I've received a few emails from readers suggesting that I focus my blog on Inspiring and Empowering other women. I didn't really think that this was the right focus for my blog at this time but then I thought long and hard and reviewed my own life and the journey I have had.  I struggled with the idea of talking so freely about my personal experiences but then I was reminded of something that I've always wanted to do and that was to help people. I never knew how or to what extent I would do this, all I knew was that I had a desire and a passion to help in some kind of way.

Last night, I thought more about the idea of inspiring girls and women and empowering them to live their best life possible, "Could I do this, did I have what it took to help these ladies?"

Right now, I don't know but I really want to try and I'm willing to take this adventure head on. So within the next few days and weeks you will see changes and updates being made to my blog. I'll be focusing on topics that inspire and empower girls and women, I'll be providing personal development posts which will be largely based on my own life, lessons I've learned and research I've done or information I have obtained from professionals.

During my life I have overcome bulimia, depressions, abuse, suicidal thoughts/attempts and so many others issues. I was always ashamed to talk about these things mainly because people close to me made me feel ashamed but then I realized that I had overcame all of this for a reason, an important reason and I could use these experiences to help others realize that there is a rainbow at the end of every storm and a light after every dark day. Life can be inspiring and can be lived out in the best way possible!

Additional experience includes working within teen peer-groups to help support girls who struggle with life and all it's pressures. I believe all of this experience will aide me in my quest to help others.

Keep your eyes opened for many changes to come!

  1. Hello CityGirl, I love your Blog. I'm so glad you have decided to help other women. I am looking for some motivation to lose weight. That is my biggest goal right now. I admire women who can meet their goals and I feel weak because I can't meet mine. I have 3 to 4 months to get ready for summer and aaahhh!! shorts!! I have no motivation and can't seem to make the time. HELP! What would you do?

  2. Hi Anon, thanks for your comment and I really hope I can help. As I’m sure you’re aware losing weight is really tough with all the temptations out there! I hate to say this because it seems so cliché but I had been trying for years to lose weight by myself and always, always messed up in some way or another. Recently (last week) I signed up for Weight Watches and in the first week I lost 4 pounds! It’s so easy, all you have to do is count points, track what you eat and you can work out or not, but it’s not required. As long as you stay on track you WILL lose weight, I haven’t worked out yet and I still lost weight. I'm not really a "meetings" kind of gal but this is really cool, in the meetings I meet some great ladies who I just clicked with and we all decided to link up and motivate each other and we even talk outside of the meetings. You can do the online version if you don't have time to go to meetings or can’t find one in your area. Also I think it’s cheaper and there’s a special price going on right now and it’s just as effective! Thank you again and I hope this helped!

  3. I think it is wonderful what you are doing here. Women supporting women is so important we really do need to help each other and empower other women to be all that they can be. I am your newest follower from the blog hop  The Mommy Chronicles
