Another Step

Previously published on in October of 2014

So here I am. 2:00 a.m. and I’m starting a blog. Just a few years ago I was convinced I’d never do anything like this. Ever. I’m shy and get nervous easily. However, since joining social media in 2007 I’ve slowly been coming out of my shell and have been gaining more courage. Now I’m ready (although slightly terrified) to step out of my comfort zone and take the plunge.

I’ve overcome a lot of obstacles in my life; faced and conquered many challenges. I started out as a fragile, broken girl and have blossomed into a strong, whole woman. During my journey from hopeless to hopeful I have taken many uncomfortable steps. I’m grateful for every struggle and appreciate every success because it has shaped and molded me into an individual of great character. I don’t have all the answers and I don’t understand everything but I’m excited and I look forward to sharing my heart with you.

Welcome to Moments with Missy!

My struggle helped me to more clearly see me and discover hope, happiness, and purpose.
