Hi, everyone! My name is Michelle Jean but for years I’ve gone by the nickname Mitz Uninspired.

It was a reverse “law of attraction” thing, wanting to label myself as “Uninspired” so that the universe would never think I was too full of inspiration and stop sending me things my way to keep inspiring me! (Silly, I know.)

So it was only natural when starting a blog about the woes and wonders of motherhood that the name The Uninspired Mom came to be.

But it also speaks to me personally as a mom, because god knows there are days when I just feel so uninspired.

I want to be a great mom. I want to give my child the best childhood he can have. But I also struggle with depression and health issues, and some days are ‘downer’ than others.

Thus, this blog is not “another mom blog”. I want to tell the untold stories of emotional pain and hardship and heartache nobody knows about. I want other moms to know they are not alone.

I want to believe that I can do this, and that we can do this, together. Are you with me?

“Being able to understand what other people go through, and share some of it, you see if maybe there are things that you can do. Knowing that perhaps you can offer something, if they’re in a situation or in a moment that isn’t clear, or they feel like they don’t know how to be or what to do. If someone comes to you for help — that shared experience, where you can have a conversation. You haven’t walked in their shoes, but you know a bit of the road that they’ve been on.”
