Here I am - 40 weeks pregnant and starting a new website - perhaps I'm crazy? It'll be a little sporadic at this stage, nothing's perfect.........
A few years ago I started a blog. I didn't really follow any blogs at the time, or even really know what I was doing. I had just finished my life coaching course, and everyone else was doing it, so I thought I should too.
Turns out I wasn't too bad, (if I do say so myself), I developed a small following, and people would often comment to me about whatever I had written (usually privately) much to my embarrassment and delight.
However I often found that writing took me a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, long time - and I always felt like I had to be an expert, I had to do it all perfectly.
In the end I came to loathe my blog, it felt like fake version of me - the total opposite of what I was shooting for.
SO, I've pulled it all down. Which has been a theme for the last year.
We moved countries in May 2014, leaving France after 7 years of living there, and returned home to New Zealand, we left behind almost all our possessions, and at the time this seemed like a great idea, but the reality has been extremely difficult. The last year was an incredibly hard time for me, for all of us, for a number of reasons. BUT with letting go came great freedom and growth, our lives have shifted and changed dramatically.
I wanted to create a new space for me and my beautiful business - a place of play, authenticity, simplicity, and light - this new site feels like that to me. And the fact that the platform I now use is called Square Space makes me really happy (I'll get onto why in another post).
Anyway, I'm a big fan/follower of MamaMala's - and she calls her blog a notebook, I like that concept - because all I really want to share with anyone are my ideas, my experience, my experiments, and what I'm working on at the moment - it feels like my notes on life. I'm not an expert at anything, but I am passionate and devoted to myself, my practice and living a life that inspires me.
I hope you enjoy it.
