So some of you have noticed l have fallen off the edges of the earth, not posting anywhere on the positiveshores social sites. I am still here working behind the scenes, but not as hard as l could be, l come in and add a few sentences to a number of drafts l have going on when l feel inspired, I have had my butt seriously kicked at work the past few month or so. It is all about finding the balance and l haven’t quite mastered it yet. It’s all a learning process l guess.
I have been having an ongoing battle in my own head, about this blogging/website stuff. As in is this the best platform to get my message across about mental health, finding your own passion and leading the best version of yourself. lAs it is only new and l am still finding my feet with it all and finding balance between work, homeschooling, being a wife, mother, friend, sister the list goes on.
Last month a had an old school friend who’s husband’s demons got the better of him and he took his own life, and how easily these demons can claim a number of people off the top of my head. So after many tears and holding my loved ones that little bit tighter over the past fews weeks and almost loosing it when ever my find would post a heart felt post about how amazing her (now) late husband was. Then to learn of a family member’s near tragedy and fearing for the life of their loved one. All this emotional turmoil was playing havoc with my mind and then the mind games began with the “if l only”, “What if”. I started to go onto auto pilot while mentally trying to “fix” the situations that other people had going on. I had to step back and let people live their lives and put in my advice when asked for. I can to the realisation that l can’t save EVERYONE, but i l can get one person a day to stop and think and implement just one thing l suggest my job is done.
You can’t save people, you can just love them-AnÏs Nin
So l sat down and after falling down the 2019 planning/ organising rabbit hole on Youtube and came to the conclusion. I still love goal setting, l love helping people set and accomplish their goals no matter the significance in my world. I love helping people find their own passions in life and see them flourish and grow within that passion.
My plan for 2019 is to connect with as many people as possible, if l help a handful thats fantastic, if not so be it. I plan to post more frequently with more content and grow this page in the coming year, so l can serve people to the best of my ability so they can become the best versions of themselves, there are probably some more goals l can think of but not at the moment as l hear the kids raiding the fridge, ha teenagers
till next time
