I’m not sure if this is a change of direction as such, more of me stepping back and realising the blog isn’t quite representing all of the things I’d hoped it would be. As I tried to explain in my about me page and in my choice of blog title, I feel as if there are many sides of ‘me’ to juggle. I am sure this is true of 90 of people out there. Rather than be defined by the fact I’m a parent, I also want to try and let the other sides of Tin shine too, because let’s face it, I exhisted before Princess blessed me with her presence 4 years ago. Sometimes the family side of things tends to take over, that’s not a bad thing in itself, but when it means you supress everything else it begins to take it’s toll.
I am a working mother who is trying to find her foothold in life. I believe everyone is brilliant at something but I haven’t quite figured out what my ‘great’ thing is yet. Blogging has given me a much better idea of what makes me happy and fulfilled. I love to write and wish I had more time to do it, I love to share so Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc have been relationship savers (I’ve stopped bending The King’s ear).
There are some wonderful men and women out there who I’m lucky enough to call my friends. I need to get a little bit better at keeping in touch with them and balancing the tightrope before we lose contact! I am an ex-sports enthusiast who let PCOS and the excess weight it caused take over things rather than simply complicate them, therefore the health and fitness side of Tin needs to get back in the driving seat (or at the very least step back inside the vehicle of priorities…)
As I said, this isn’t quite a change of direction as much as it is a reminder to re-focus onall the parts of me I care about rather than obsessing on one to the point it isn’t healthy. This is about my life, which I guess will naturally reflect in what is written on here, the blog. Hopefully there will be a nice mixture of content and who knows, maybe even some sort of structure to when I post, though that may be asking for too much as when it comes to things outside work, spontonaety and clutter reign strong!
