I haven’t written for a few days.

I read on another blog that people aren’t really interested in reading your story unless you are giving them something back and I have been throwing myself the ‘what the fuck am I doing?’ line – (that’s an old pattern)

I’ve given back my entire life.

It has taken me years, literally years to do this and yes, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t looking for any feedback, acknowledgement, healing – of course I am. Isn’t everyone who chooses to open themselves up when writing a personal blog? I have also read numerous times that there is a book in everyone and yes, I want to write a book. Will this be the content? Who know’s… but for me it’s a start in my writing something down even if this get’s lost in a sea of a million other personal, painful life experiences.

I’m writing.

I can offer so much.

I can and will teach other’s how to change their live’s through writing and speaking – it’s my life’s work my purpose for being and right now I am allowing my inner children to speak freely without judgement (from me) for they have been suffocating slowly, for many years.

Blogging is very new to me and I find WordPress quite difficult. I am still learning about tags and categories and some would say that it should be self explanatory but it’s not for me! I know that I also need to learn about copyrights and quoting others – what I can and can’t do.

This is my journey.

I am grateful for this space and I am grateful for anyone who read’s my story so I will ride the waves of not feeling good enough and see where it takes me…


To be more childlike, you don't have to give up being an adult. The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously. Recapture the childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe. - Dr Wayne Dyer

  1. Keep going. You are doing a great job. You can learn the technicalities and You can ask people to help you. As you know when you give to someone it has a positive impact. Let someone else have that feeling as well. Lots of love to you.


  2. You are so so brave to ‘Bare your soul’ and reveal your life’s story. Many wouldn’t have the balls to do it or may just make up stuff to make it more ‘interesting’ This is real ! This blog IS VERY compelling, articulate and humbling. You are not only helping yourself but also helping others. It’s perfectly normal to think wtf am I doing from time to time, you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t feel that often. Keep on going . You can do it! Life is a rollercoaster. You have just got to ride it. Sending much love and courage. Go girl ! Xxx

  3. What you’ve written resonates so much with me, and I’ve been on “the writing path” for over forty years in business and on my own. Keep up the good work. I’ll read more of your posts when I have the time. Promise.
