Mummy had a wobble.
I feel like I should be having some sort of therapy, sitting in a circle and standing up when it was my turn, saying:
My name is Lena aka Mumonamission and I haven’t blogged for three weeks.
Listening for the gasps around the room, then all the whispering starts, “How can she call herself a blogger?”
In truth, I couldn’t blog; I was having some sort of confidence crisis. I have always had a dream of becoming a writer, (yes I know, my grammar isn’t too hot) but my blog was my baby. I loved turning it on in the morning and having my Dear Diary moments.
Sadly it was all gone, even the kids and their funny ways couldn’t get me to open the laptop and start typing.
In truth it wasn’t just my blog that suffered this crisis; it was my business, my writing and my life in general. I know that sounds so over dramatic, but that was just the way I was feeling. I withdrew from Twitter and facebook and locked myself away in the hope that this feeling would simply just go away.
I couldn’t find a way out, even Princess and her “consplosion” (she meant Explosion) comment couldn’t get me writing.
Thankfully, one person who has never really taken an interest in my writing made me see what I had been missing all along. My lovely hubby, the man who is obsessed with his baby blue camper van actually sat down and read one of my first posts. He was actually laughing and turned to me and said “why have you stopped?” I just cried, and I couldn’t stop.
I didn’t know what had happened; he gave me the biggest hug and told me that I was his inspiration. Before he had met me he hadn’t dared to dream. He told me that he was so proud of me and everything that I had achieved in my life. From the kids, the blog to setting up the VA Business, he said he was so proud and that I should be too.
So I decided late last night that A Mum on a Mission blog was to have an overhaul, as well as Mummy Mission herself.
So I will be dusting off the cobwebs, redesigning the blog webpage, updating the VA Business site and blog and also sorting out my life, by taking part in an amazing weight loss programme from Harley Street. (Which I am so excited about)
It has taken three weeks for me to come to the conclusion, that I am a good person. I am a good writer (well I think so) and I will make a success of my business.
In life sometimes it’s those baby steps we take that lead us to bigger and better things. I am so blessed to have four beautiful children, a wonderful husband and amazing friends. Anything else that comes my way will be a bonus.
Thanks for listening
Love you muchly
