But that’s ok. My life isn’t just a one tracked path. I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a friend. I am a sister. I am a daughter. I am a lover of ballet, the ocean, tea and chocolate. I am a very amateur writer.
I guess the main aim of starting this blog was for me to begin writing. About everything and anything. Sometime before I die I will write a book. Though I’m not sure what it will be about yet.
However blogging is giving me that creative, literary outlet that I didn’t realise I needed until I began.
Looking back on my childhood and adolescence I’ve always been a ‘writer’. A journal since I was 8. List after list. Recipes. Short stories. Poems. Essays.
My mum even said that when I was little, when asked what I wanted to do when I grew up, I said a teacher and a writer. I’ve already accomplished one of those…
Seriously though, I just wanted to acknowledge (but not apologise for) the fact that my blog posts don’t follow one main theme. Life is full and busy and messy with many different facets.
Now for a bit of shameless research. If you were to buy a book on motherhood/parenting, what would you want to read about?
