Where to start?
I've been overwhelmed by the response to my last post.
Honestly I just don't have the words.
So thank you. All of you. Thank you.
And hello and welcome to new followers. You are very welcome here.
I've been thinking about my posts on here, and how I portray and express myself. My blog was never intended to be a platform for a business or a site with sponsored posts. It was never going to be a place where I shared crafty loveliness, or cooking prowess. It was always going to be a personal place for me to write about whatever I wanted to on that particular day. Some of the posts are planned. Some of them are processed on the page. Some of them are entirely spontaneous.
I follow a lot of blogs. Some for the recipes. Some for the product placement. Some for the craft ideas and loveliness. Some for the beautiful words and photographs. But the ones that I find myself looking forward to reading the most, are the ones that spoke to me when I first came across them. Some of these blogs have come to mean a great deal to me, as have the people that write them.
Those blogs are full of them. And I love that. I love to how their blogs reveal layers of the person behind it. I love how over time a relationship is formed with that person, and a friendship develops. I'm always struck by the bravery of someone putting themselves out there. My time as a counsellor gave me a privileged insight into the thoughts and feelings of my clients. It was never ever taken for granted, and nor did it cease to be fascinating and humbling. As they peeled back their layers, I never forgot how brave it was to trust another person and to reveal what was on the inside.
So this is me. This is my blog. It's where I share. The big and the small. The important and mundane. The happy and the sad. Those moments of doubt and self loathing. The times when I feel scared and alone. And when I am on top of the world happy too.
Thank you for reading it. And thank you for being so sincere and gorgeous.
