Being a woman

What do you think of when you hear the date December 26th? Perhaps it’s Boxing Day and you’re out hitting the sales. Or maybe you think of it as recovery day. You know, that day when you know you’ve survived Christmas and now it’s time to stay in bed, preferably with the covers pulled over your head. It’s the day you eat the Christmas leftovers and wonder how your children are already bored with their new toys. Magical may not be the word that comes to mind.

Do you struggle with seeing the good in life? How do you answer the ‘is the glass half-full, or half-empty’ question?

I’m sure you know what it is like to crave chocolate, or something equally as tasty and perhaps equally as high in fat and sugar!
What is behind those cravings? Perhaps we just like the taste. Doh!

There is a lot of talk around society today about how being a mum is hard; the sacrifices of our body, our time, and our dreams. However, as my children are starting to grow from newborns to independent little souls that are wilful and wonderful (all at the same time!) I have been reflecting on what it means to find joy as a mum.

What had sounded like a fun date together during our blossoming romance ended in tears (mine) and bewilderment (his).
“I never want to do that again!” I said, with more drama than a room full of five-year-olds in Elsa costumes.
