Amy Blogging 2.0Posted: September 11, 2018
This Blog started back in 2011 when I was fed up with my Mum’s repetitive Cancer diagnosis, and I wanted to understand what made us truly ‘well’. I wrote a whole bunch of ideas down, and posted them on here, about things that I experienced in my own personal health journey. Over time, I became more in tune with my own body and listening to it’s delicate voice. In many ways, this search evolved into something much deeper for me. A passion was born, but I didn’t know which form it was going to take. In 2013 my gorgeous Mum lost her very brave and what seemed an everlasting battle. After her passing, an incredible grief was upon me, and yet I did not have time to fully sit in this feeling and experience it because I soon found out that I was soon to be come a mother myself. Accepting that I would become a ‘Motherless Mother’ in such a small space of time is something I still think about and has taken a long time to fully accept.
Fast forward 5 years, life is very different to where I ever thought I would be.
I now have 2 beautiful children who I am incredibly grateful for. Despite some challenging circumstances over the past few years, they continue to keep me grounded and have taught, me so much. And they are literally the reason I rise everyday! It’s fair to say that the older they get, the exhausting physical challenges of being a Mum to two young ones, is replaced by more quality time, exploring the world with them and I feel so lucky to be their Mum. It is my favourite role out of all the hats I wear.
I haven’t had much time to put my thoughts down the past few years, but now as the storms around me seem to have settled I feel a bit more steady, I feel confident again to write on here. To carve out some space for me. So, what does that looks like? If I had to sum it up, it would be everyday happiness. My Mum used to say “Life is what happens while we are busy making plans”.
