Going Through Changes

This year so far and the tail end of last has been a period of growth, going through changes, facing past insecurities, learning, hurting and trying to evolve into a better version of myself. It doesn’t come without its growing pains and I’ve had to face some home truths, work against some of my factory…

National Infertility Awareness Week 2022 – Our story

A topic often surrounded by stigma, which so many feel uncomfortable discussing, approaching, sharing and for some even simply acknowledging. Living with or through infertility struggles is often a very challenging and isolating time in a lot of couples lives. I feel very blessed to be where we are currently with our beautiful son and…

The Great Disconnect

Connection or lack there of are two of the major themes within my life. I go through phases in my personal life, and within individual relationships where I need one or the other, often going in a continual cycle. With connection brings warmth, comfort, stronger relationships, knowledge, strength to name a few, but on the…

Growing Pains

I’ve been back and forth and struggled with how to write down exactly how I’ve been feeling lately. I’ve felt it for some time, in the back ground, I’ve put it on a shelf at the back to come to later when I could find the head space to open it up and read through…

Self Care Survival

Time has escaped me once more, but so has so much more recently – like my ability to plan and eat functional meals for myself, making sure I’m consuming enough water, taking time to myself. The last month and a bit I’ve been stuck in survival mode due to a culmination of multiple work deadlines,…

An open book once more

Lately I’ve been feeling reflective, both in my personal life as well as in this realm of blogging. This blog has been such a source of support, escapism, a way to de-clutter my thoughts, to connect with others, seek advice and feel less isolated over the years. I’ve been looking back over my more recent…

A women’s worth

This past year of my life has been a period of evolution and development, one of which I haven’t taken much time to reflect upon or appreciate. When becoming a mom, whilst carrying Finn, I was so in awe of my body, in awe of its process of creating life, sustaining it, carrying it, protecting…

How are you? No really.

Well dear Reader, it’s that time again. It feels like forever since I’ve shared something other than life milestone related stories. Unintentionally so, as as a parent, having time to reflect at the end of the day is a luxury that the majority of us cannot afford. So I’ve fell into the trap of sharing…

Friendship and Fertility – Part 2 – ‘The Club’

Fertility or rather infertility and the great trial of my lack of ‘mom club’ membership in life was something that had often plagued me for some time during a period in my life. For a period of time I remember looking towards those friends of friends who had found themselves evolving into mothers, parents and…

Our Fertility Journey

Now over half way through our first pregnancy, I find myself feeling reflective of our time spent ‘in our season of wait’ before our BFP. I am aware that our journey didn’t take the route that we were gearing ourselves up for, and that ours didn’t have the obstacles that so many other couples out…
