A little something I wrote….

A little something I wrote….

It matters not, the colour of your skin.
It matters not, your chosen religion.
It matters not, your sexuality.
It matters not, your gender identity.
It matters not, what clothes you wear.
It matters not, how you style your hair. It matters not, your body size.
It matters not, if you’re confident or shy.
It matters not, if you’re rich or poor.
It matters not, what you do for a living.

But I’ll tell you what matters.
More than all of the above.
Respect and kindness.
Honesty and love.
Open-mindedness and acceptance.
Support and friendship.
Truth and peace.

Be true to yourself, and let others be too.
You’re beautiful, you’re enough,
You’re stronger than you think.
Love is love, and family is family.
Don’t judge or criticise, accuse or blame.
Don’t tell people how they feel is wrong.
Don’t tell people how they identify as is wrong.

There is no wrong way to feel.
There is no wrong way to identify yourself.

Your feelings are valid, you’re .
Don’t ever be ashamed, for being yourself.
Always be yourself, your best self, your honest self, and never, let the world change you because you’re different.
Our differences are what make us unique.
Opinions are just opinions, they don’t change the facts.
Hold on, pain ends.


Look who’s back ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hey hey hey!!

I’m so very sorry for being so absent of late. Looking at my posts, the last time I blogged was back in May!! That’s terrible, and I feel really sorry for neglecting you all! So, I’m making it my mission, to write every Friday! And more in between if I can. I really want to make this blog a success, and if I don’t write, that’s not going to happen!

So, a brief catch up is in order!

My baby, is now 3!! How did that even happen?! Time sure does fly, way too fast! When I was pregnant, people kept telling me it would be like that, but I always laughed it off. Now I’m living it, I see just how right they all were! It’s been such a wild ride these past 3 years. I think I’ve been through every emotion possible a million times, and most likely aged and my hair has greyed a fair bit too! But I wouldn’t change it for the world. I absolutely love being a mum, and despite it being the hardest thing I’ve ever done, parenting, to me, is truly a blessing. After such a long journey trying to conceive, I’d just about given up hope of ever being a mum. So to be 3 years into mum life, I count my blessings daily.

It does have its moment of everything being so overwhelming though, and times when I really doubt myself and my parenting abilities. I only have to look at my daughter though, to see how happy and content she is, and she’s so learning and growing so well, I know I’m doing okay. My husband and I are a good team, and get through the rough with the smooth, and I’m proud of us. Yes we’re winging it every day ๐Ÿ˜‚ but we’re doing alright!

So tell me lovely followers, what would you like to see on this blog? I have a few ideas, such as product reviews (I have a couple in mind to write up in the next week or so) and also parenting hacks and life organising kinda stuff. Mental health will be a strong influence in the background, and I’ll focus on it at times when it’s relevant. I feel it’s important to keep talking about it, and continue to break down those walls of stigma surrounding it, and help people feel less alone, and that it’s genuinely okay to not be okay sometimes.

Pop me a comment and let me know your thoughts. This blog is just as much for my followers, if not more so, as it is for me. What started out all those years ago, as a form of therapy for me during a really tough time in my life, has grown and blossomed into something entirely different and something I’m genuinely proud of. It’s an open and honest blog, and always will be. I don’t see the point of hiding the truth, when times are hard, I’ll say so. Likewise when they’re great, I’ll say that too! For every hard time, is a better time just around the corner. You can’t have sunshine and rainbows all the time, but it can’t rain all the time either. Life is for living, and totally what you make it. So give it your best shot, you deserve it, you’re worth it and it’s only you who can make it happen!

Thanks to all who have stuck around despite the long silences, I am determined to do better!!

Have a great weekend all, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Hey everyone,

Just a quick check in, to say that I would love for any of my followers here, to pop over to Facebook (if you have it) and give my page a like. I post daily, often more than once. It’s far easier for me to pop a quick post on there, than it is to sit and write a blog post. Of course I’ll still be here and write as often as I’m able. But predominantly, my page sees a lot more action, so to speak!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Here is the link to my page ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡
