autumn ;eaves

Lately…I’ve been speaking a lot with myself…

It’s cold outside and we spend more time inside rather than outside.

We spend more time cuddling , playing , chatting , baking and having fun altogether. I love spending time with my girls although sometimes they make me feel so exhausted…

I had more time to reflect/I allowed myself to reflect at my life now and wonder if this is where I am supposed to be at the moment.

I am not talking as much of a place to be as such. I am talking about my life – the place I am supposed to be in my life. Some days I feel like my journey through life until now has been pointless and that unlike some of my other friends the same age with me I don’t have an established career. I used to work in HR and then I moved over to Supply Chain and now I am a blogger and I am learning more and more about social media and the online world as such.

I spend my days fully parenting and my evenings in front of the computer trying to get better/evolve although even in blogging there are so many other fellow bloggers that started at the same time with me and they achieved a LOT more than me.

Did I imagine myself like this when I was in my youth?

As an unachieved middle? age woman?

NO? Or maybe I did?

I always knew I wanted to be a mum and that before being anything else. So I guess in a way I influenced my life.

As a Libra I am always in two minds, I am always doubting and overthinking my moves and steps I take in life. God knows I made lots of mistakes in my life from misjudging people to misjudging situations…Plus I always belittle myself and what I do so no wonder I sometimes feel so down.

Why can I not just take the good out of my life?

I guess that is because I am a human being and I want to be better but the circumstances and life don’t allow me to do so unfortunately.

So for now…I will be here. A full time mum and nothing else.

I leave you with this song that happened to start on VH1 just I am finalising my post…

    I talk a lot to myself in general sweety. I never saw myself as a parent growing up but then I didn’t have many years of growing up until I became a parent, so what did I really know?!… That song makes me cry every time!

  • Annie @ Simple Wanderlust

    Ah lovely, I feel like that a lot when it comes to blogging, comparing ourselves is so self destructive and yet so easy to do!
    You are a lovely person and I hope you keep on enjoying snuggles indoors and focusing on all the postivies x

      Aw..thank you Annie.I know it is…its just that sometimes I just can’t help myself. Is very hard for me to end things and start again…

    I did the career thing – but never felt fulfilled by it. Facing up to the possibility of not being able to have kids made me realise what’s truly important. And I thank my lucky stars I had my boys in the end. You’ve got so much going for you. Don’t let that little voice in your head put you down.

    I’m not very career driven to be honest – I have a good albeit part time job and I’m about as high up the ladder as I really want to go. I am much more fulfilled by my home life and I think people tend to forget just how hard it is to raise children. You’re doing a great job as a mum and to me, that’s harder and more important than being a high flyer x x
