We Need To Talk, Again

A Recap At the beginning of this month I wrote what I guess is the kind of prequel to this post. I don’t know if this is the right terminology, but I am running with it. You can read it…

We Need To Talk

  Let’s Talk I don’t know if sharing this is the right thing to do? I apologise if it is a little too raw for some. But we need to talk… About me. Last year I was struggling. To the…

Changing My Personal Narrative From Within

The Blue Print If you asked most people that know me, especially those on social media, they would probably describe me as a positive person. I would agree that I have a positive persona, but to those that really know…

2018 || The Word(s) Of The Year

The Concept I’ve heard a lot of talk on different podcasts and motivational videos during 2017, the idea of having a word of the year. It’s not a new or even a very revolutionary concept. But it is something that…

The freedom to truly be me

Sorry for the radio silence || When life takes over

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to sit and write a blog post. It’s been far longer than I anticipated or wanted. You know, sometimes life gets in the way. Having four children means sometimes life gets busy, busier than normal. Every now and again I have to hold my hands up and say something has got to give and for a while it was blogging.

Tales of my Motherhood || Minimalism || A Social Media Detox

Now from everything I have written here it would be easy to assume, I was well on the way to getting my shit together. Well I am here to say “Do Not Be Fooled”. I have made some baby steps, but I still have a long way to go. However, it is hard, there is so much to focus on. So much to do, so many different things trying to get my time. I don’t know what to do or where to start. Then I add extra stuff on top like writing a blog and running an Instagram account and everyone knows if you want to be successful [whatever that means to you, you have to work on the stats]. I started looking into and adding in these extra dimensions to try and boost my stats and therefore boost my audience reach too. I always feel a bit of an idiot talking about this stuff, but the reality is at the end of the day, I do want people to read what I write. I want encourage and connect with people and me writing and no one reading, isn’t going to make that happen. I started to get sucked in, I also started losing my joy and my passion. I would find myself getting overwhelmed, uninspired and procrastinating and not producing the content I wanted to, because my head was basically too far up my own arse trying to find a magic formula.
