Mum on the Blog!

Hello my lovelies,

I have been missing in action for a moment…

It’s been a great ordeal with my children’s father since we separated in 2015 to finalise our extensive court order surrounding contact arrangements.

It’s taken a little over 18 months to have it all final and written in stone about how future contact arrangements shall be.

Initially I struggled with the thought of being away from my children and not being there to witness some key moments in their lives as I have always been there and able to.

This weekend however, really heightened the reality of how life will be going forward, co-parenting and not having the children on all weekends etc.

So I told myself, Let’s NOT get caught up in the feelings, and who wants to live there anyway? There’s no happiness where negative thoughts and feelings reside.

….And then I thought to myself… GIIIIIRL! You just need to take this opportunity to remember who you are when the mummy hat is removed and embrace every moment!

I completely changed my perception on things, because that’s what it really boils down to at the end of the day, our perception.

Our perception about things in life can make or break us and we need to be really in-tune with our thoughts which in turn will have a huge impact on our feelings.

I realised that actually, lets flip the script here… I can really use this time to recharge and be fresh and rejuvenated for when the kids are back with me and do the things I once loved before being a mother:- such as singing, song writing, dancing, reading, long baths, drawing and the list goes on.

Sooooo….

Here’s to self love and self care. πŸ’•

Look out for my pending blog on Self Love and Self Care actually… it’s just baking…

You can check out my instagram Here too, which I have not long created, so would be lovely to see some of you there… pop over and say Heeey πŸ‘‹πŸΎ!

  2. Hey girl! Iv not long wrote a similar post about splitting up with kids. Whilst it hurts to separate and not have the kids all the time, it can be an absolute blessing to have YOU time! I’m five years into co-parenting- and three years into a new relationship! I love this read though and wish you the very best in finding yourself again πŸ’–
