It is 6.30am and I am currently sat at my dining room table having a hot chocolate before the kids come downstairs.
The last few weeks, or months even, I have been having a bit of a wobble when it comes to this blog of mine. Not because I had fallen out of love with it, but because I just didn’t know whether my voice was worth listening to.
It is so hard, battling against the whole internet, but I have realised recently that it isn’t a battle. I am not competing, I need to stop comparing, and just be me.
My voice is worth listening to.
…. even if it is just my children reading in years to come.
Somewhere along the line I have stopped using this space as a place to document my life. I guess I just felt like there was no point at all and I could use my time better doing other bits and bobs. But I miss writing. I miss taking photos for the sole purpose of using them for me and my blog.
You know what I realised the other day?
I have no photos of Lil’s birthday last year. I vlogged it so I have footage in that respect, but I have no photos from the day. If I’d been blogging and keeping up with taking family photos, I would have remembered.
I lost focus… but now it is back.
I love writing, I love photography. So I am back, back sharing our moments and my thoughts as I journey through motherhood.
If you’re still with me then thank you. Each and every one of you that reads, messages me or engages in some way through social media really means the world. I write to keep memories, to unburden my mind of thoughts but also to share with you, so you don’t feel so alone.
So whether you are long-time reader, or whether you’ve justjoined me after stumbling on a post during the middle of the night – hello!
It feels good to be back!
