The last few weeks has seen a big shift in content development. It’s a conscious shift and one that’s been coming for a while now. When I started this blog, I worked hard on producing fun content that was complemented by engaging imagery. I’m certain it’s because I needed to share that I was in a happy place. I wanted to launch on a super positive note, so that’s what I did.
Eight months on and now seems like the right time to share some more personal and challenging parts of my life. See my recent post here about struggling to find balance.
To say the last five years have been tough is an understatement. My mind and body have been put through the ringer time and time again. I often wonder whether I seriously pissed someone off in a past life and karma is coming back to bite me.
In short, my introduction to motherhood was fraught with very serious, life changing health issues. But that’s a whole other story for another time. I’m back on track now but I’ll never be the same as I was before having children, and as a result have chosen not to have any more. Even though I went through hell, I’ve been very lucky that Ava has been a happy and healthy little lady from day one. She’s my little miracle in amongst a world of terrible pain and reactive depression.
The last few months have also been filled with huge personal challenges that I’m not quite ready to share here. In time and once things have settled, maybe the stories will come out. But for now, I’ll keep things close.
So, where am I going with all of this? Well, I wasn’t sure how I was going to tie it all up but then I remembered that great quote ‘When life gives you lemons, make a gin and tonic!’.
That pretty much sums up how I feel right now. It doesn’t matter what curve balls life throws at me, I’ll be OK. I might be tired, up against it and feeling that life is one big challenge after another, but I WILL be OK! All these things just make you stronger right?
