Apologies for being MIA the past few weeks! What can I say – #mumlife ! Ruby only naps throughout the day so when she finally does go down it is literally a mad rush to get as much done as possible before she wakes. (and this does not leave much time for blogging!) I have also been lacking a little motivation/inspiration to blog of late & a little lost for words so to speak! Do you ever have those periods of wondering why you are doing what you are doing? I have been feeling a little sorry for myself and I have somehow gotten caught in the trap of comparing my accomplishments to that of others- damn social media! I was getting quite frustrated and finally got to the point where I needed to take a step away from it all for a week or so and regroup. I reflected on why I started this blog in the first place and why I love it so much – it is my escape, an opportunity for me to be creative & have fun. Of course the dream is to be able to do this full time – always gotta have a dream – but just because it hasn’t happened as quickly for me as it has for others, I shouldn’t feel that I am any less successful. Is it fair to say that you can’t only measure success on how many likes you receive on social media or “stuff” you are gifted. It can sometimes be as simple as being proud & happy of what you have been able to do in this moment, inspiring that one person or just being thankful for the wonderful opportunities that have come your way so far. So in this moment, I am choosing to be thankful to be wearing this beautiful dress that was kindly gifted to me from St Frock. Colours are so perfect for Autumn don’t you think? Layer a chunky knit over the top for Winter & you have a piece that will get you through the next two seasons. Shop here.
Thanks for stopping by.
