Just Write

                                                 Write even when the world is chaotic. You don't need a cigarette, silence, music, a comfortable chair, or inner peace to write. You just need ten minutes, and a writing implement.~Cory Doctorow

I love to write, that's no secret, but I truly find myself lacking in the time.  I have recently joined the online world of Pinterest, which is a huge time waster but still pretty enjoyable to browse.  I have found a few interesting quotes about writing that have really made me think about how important it is to me and that I need to make the time for it otherwise I tend to go a bit crazy.  I have always kept a diary of sorts, but haven't written in mine for probably close to two years.  I started this blog with the intent of throwing myself back into a writing routine but have managed to only write the occasional post.  Well - that is no longer going to be the case!  I'm going to start a diary again, maybe even start up story writing which was my favourite childhood pastime.  So, expect to hear a lot more from me as I share a lot more of my random musings and truly start to make more time to do the things that make me happy!

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
 
 
Just write.
 
 
Exactly how I feel...

Attempting to Explain

My heart feels heavy.
I feel things intensely and deeply. Sometimes I see this as a good personality trait and at other times it seems too hard. 
Things change a lot when you become a parent, that's a universal fact. Your close circle changes and time becomes an even more limited commodity than it already is. 
Your child transforms before your eyes in what seems like a mix of incredibly long days, short weeks and even shorter months and years.  Sometimes the people you wanted to be around for that aren't, and that hurts. 
Catching up with people is also hard when you have spent the majority of your child's life riddled with anxiety and depression and having people around has intensified that to the point that it's just not possible most of the time.
I have come to realise that my health has inadvertently alienated some people from our life, and therefore Isaac's life, through no fault of his own.  I promise I have tried my best. I have said and done things tha…

Motherhood: The Modern Day Crisis

Motherhood is in crisis. Childhood is in crisis. Our health system is often failing new mothers. The number of parents being diagnosed with perinatal depression and/or anxiety is at an all-time high. Mothers often aren't even given the change to tell their birth story. Speaking from experience, this is a really important thing to do. Mothers are more often than not, sent home from hospital exhausted, physically and mentally; beyond depleted in every way.  Where are we going wrong?
Nicole Kingston, the family therapist/sleep consultant/all-around-wonder-woman I have been heavily relying on for all things parenting for well over a year now, aims to find out, and bring these issues and their solutions, to the attention of as many parents as she can.
It's no secret how much anxiety can rule my life at times. It sneaks in everywhere and I know it was affecting the way I parent, even when I knew I had to somehow reel it in.Enter Nicole.She introduced me to Nancy, and now, I will introduc…

Happenings ~ 4th October 2018

DOING: Lying in bed, writing this post. I had my first appointment with a new psychologist today (spoiler alert, she's amazing), and the first session with a therapist is always really emotional and tiring. I had some time in lieu owed to me from work, so I have taken full advantage of that today. Mum and Dad are taking Isaac to their bush block for the night and he was SO excited. I am really grateful for this rest. 
HEARING: My "piano" playlist. Currently one of my favourite songs is playing - "You" by Matteo Myderwyk. 
DRINKING: Right now, I am having a Remedy Kombucha, the apple crisp flavour. So good! I am still always drinking coffee, water and am favouring peppermint tea at the minute too. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is making regular Friday night appearances as well... 
EATING & COOKING: I have been eating more crap than usual over the last couple of weeks. There have been birthdays, farewells etc happening in my office and there has been quite a few t…
