I guess this brings me to this week’s blog......My Why!!!
Over the past few months I have been asked many times by family, friends, clients and colleagues. “Why are you doing a blog? It seems to take up so much of your time and you already have a full time job”.
When dad died a part of me also died with him. I was very lost and some days I found it hard to even get out of bed. I do have three beautiful children and a gorgeous husband however a part of me was missing.
Why I started writing.......
I was having counselling to help with the loss of dad but it wasn’t really helping. In the end putting pen to paper gave me a sense of relief and purpose in life. It was my escape from the real world and somewhere I could talk about my memories the good, bad and happy times.
Writing has become my “me time”. I find myself writing every spare minute I get. Even at night when I can’t sleep I write. Writing has helped me get through one of the toughest times in my life and has also taught me so much about myself that I didn’t really know.
My blogging time is now when I escape, relax and do something that is just for me.
Along the way I am meeting some incredible people who have now become my mentors and friends, I am learning so much. It has made me move out of my comfort zone and do things I never thought I could do.
Blogging is somewhere I am able to heal and find “me” again.
