The Curse Of Trying To Do It All

I’m not quite sure how I’ve got to this point, in actual fact, I have been preaching since I started blogging that you time is important and about how you shouldn’t forget who you are yet here I am, sat almost a year on worn out from simply trying to do it all and being on top of everything. But how do we get to this point? How do us Mums end up trying to do it all? Continue reading “The Curse Of Trying To Do It All”

Re-Discovering Yourself After Becoming a Mother

I have always been a worker. I started out doing a paper round after school, went on to have a Saturday job at 16 and after leaving college I decided that working was for me and not studying.

After leaving this job to pursue a new career as a teaching assistant I unexpectedly fell pregnant very quickly (we had tried the year before but after 4 months nothing had happened. Just goes to show what a new job can do for you!) I went on maternity and had planned to return to work but my new found motherly attachment had other plans! I knew I had to be at home with him and I knew I wouldn’t have been happy going back into full-time work. Continue reading “Re-Discovering Yourself After Becoming a Mother”

Inspirational Stories Week One: Maja Chudzik- Vitality Strategist

Inspirational stories: Many of us have them but may not even realise how important they truly are or are too modest to shout it from the roof-tops. Successes should be shared and enjoyed, especially when certain hurdles or obstacles have had to be overcome to get there. Your story could help others reach their full potential. For this reason, I wanted to find some truly inspiring people who have a story that needs to be told. Each week I will bring you a different story with a different angle but one that you will just have to read.

This week’s story comes from Maja Chudzik who runs her health, fitness and wellness business ‘Vitality Strategist’. Continue reading “Inspirational Stories Week One: Maja Chudzik- Vitality Strategist”
