The first step of anything is always the hardest one. Technically, this is my second attempt of starting the blog, but never mind, it’s still the first post this time around!
I thought the first post would be a good place to outline what it is that I want to do with this blog. So here goes…
I love motherhood. I love being a mother, and I can’t think of anything that I want to do more – but it is hard. Some days it is extremely hard. It can also be extremely overwhelming and sometimes you can feel as though you are unable to keep on top of any area of your life.
You feel that the house is upside down. It is just impossible to keep up with things, your todo list is overflowing plus you have about 3000 things circling around in your head that you need to add to it and there are just so many appointments and events going on, was it today the kids needed 50p for that thing in school?! and why is there always some sort of fancy dress thing going on?
You feel like your diet could really do with a bit of help, and fitting exercise in just seems impossible most of the time, and what on earth are you going to make for food tonight? Your cupboards are giving of an old mother hubbard vibe.
We have all been there. In fact, anyone who says that they haven’t felt overwhelmed with motherhood and just life in general – is lying.
I could lie to you and tell you that I have it all completely figured out, but I am just not that sorta person.
I can tell you though that I do feel that feeling the way that I just described is no longer the norm. Yes there are days like that, weeks even, but it’s not everyday.
I want to help you find rhythms and routines for your family and your life, help you slow down and simplify things so that you can actually enjoy motherhood and you can finally feel like you’ve on top of things and you have got the balance right for your family (at least most of the time), because balance is going to look completely different for everyone.
I’m a qualified Nutrition and Health Coach so not only can I help you with getting you living your motherhood the way you want to, I can help you nourish yourself too.
I strongly believe that if you start looking after yourself, everything else will just fall into place.
I’m excited to get started, and I can’t wait to get to know you too!
