Everything starts somewhere

3 mins read


I have had a serious case of writers block. I have had many great blog and post ideas over the last few months. So much that I have started a book of ideas- nothing like procrastination!

I have had to take some time away to collect myself and figure out what is next, why, whats it all about …..

It is funny I talk about my idea to start The Baby Manual, why I thought it would be good and useful for new parents out there. I backed myself and did it- I made it or did I just make it?

Sometimes believing in yourself is a tough gig, you loose that drive and focus and feel like you just flap about for a bit.

Over the last few months I have been speaking to some pretty amazing people.

They make me want to be a better person, to try harder and to keep going. I have learn’t that everything starts somewhere with someone, an idea, a dream or vision.

For the last few years have felt a bit shy to show people what I have made. I am not sure why it was a bit silly. On camera I am very happy being confident and in my clinics I ask people to trust me and that things will get better. Honestly I didn’t feel like I deserved to be heard and was scared of someone disputing me or challenging me.

Having been inspired by many of the speakers on this course I feel like I have something to say and share- that is different.

So I invite you all to join me on my next mission to promote this amazing creation I have made to help new parents.

My mission will include educating new parents that Broccoli does not cause wind! That being aware of your babies in pregnancy and their movements is important everyday. That when breastfeeding your boobs would feel empty and full everyday and that just being OK is OK- perfect does not exist.

This blog is going to be informative, controversial at times and hopefully a bit funny.

I have learnt that everything starts somewhere and for the first time in a while I am ready to start a new journey forward embracing the knowledge and message I have for new parents.

Today is the day, my block is cleared and I am FULL of words!!
