Reflection

Posted: August 30, 2017 in Uncategorized

I have really been struggling with blogging for the last year. I have been very busy…

🔘 So I became a mother

🔘 I moved house

🔘 I became unemployed

All these life changes have given me reason to be undecided by what my life and purpose is going to be moving forward. I was already in a work limbo, but now I want a job that works around my child.

I currently have just fallen into my role as a stay-at-home mum, attempting attachment parenting.  This is all so new and very intimidating, because I’m parenting in the Internet age with everyone blogging or instagramming their perfect parenting. I try to not follow it all to closely but that can be difficult. I also am finding it difficult to seek advice from health visitors, because I feel that they will judge me for wanting to prolong breastfeeding and because I’m vegan. Since becoming a mum all I see are stories blaming veganism for parents who don’t feed their children properly and the child either getting sick or dying. Research is the key and being aware of the stage your child is at and whether the food gives them the right nutrients. I don’t consider myself an expert, but with the internet you have acces to experts without the big price tag.

Anyway, I didn’t write this post to go on about veganism, despite that may come up again as it is very close to my heart. I’m just trying to get back into blogging, need to fill my spare time now I’m not working. It’s so strange being unemployed, but it gives me a chance to chase new dreams and also work on my writing and grammar. I have spent so many years not writing correctly that I feel practice is in order while I decide my next step in my career.

Most of my posts are about life purpose, but I find that having a purpose is so important. Growing up I used to pray everyday that God would show me what my life’s purpose was. I wanted to do something that put God at the centre and looking at my life everything I did just took me further away from God. While I’m home raising my child I hope that I can get back my relationship with God, because I want my child to have that same relationship as it made my choices good even though God began to take a backseat.

I have so much to mull over and I’m hoping all this children’s television won’t fry my brain. I hope to keep an updated blog as I now have so much free time, but I have struggled many time with staying up to date. Life can get busy when you least expect it.
