motherhood: follow your passion

Mothering has always been one of my passions.

I dreamed of it, planned for it and waited for the opportunity to come my way.



As I was waiting for the right timing to have children and to find my

prince charming, I keep myself busy. I did not allow myself to let go of

my dream or to waver from the path I set out for myself. I stayed

focused and determined that motherhood would be part of my life.

find your own happiness

I have been slowly working through my 100 ways to be happy list. The original list that I found is HERE

and I carry it around with me all the time. I take it with me so I can

ponder over what I want to focus on and then work out how I can plan

activities and adventures into our family life.

happy I need to… Continue

a time and season

Lately I have been pondering all the things I want to do.

All the goals I want to achieve.



I have also been thinking about the time and season of my life right now.

I am still young, have energy (most days), and have enough self belief

to think I can put my mind to achieving something I really want.



But, it is also my time and season where I have young children at home.

Currently I have 4 children at school and 3 children at home.



It is a… Continue
