Let me reintroduce myself

There are moments in life that define us - maybe immediately, or perhaps they set off a transformation that rolls out over time. A journey. The last few years have been the latter for me. Quite simply, I'm different to the me who was here two years ago. It's fair to say I've been through the fire… Continue reading Let me reintroduce myself

I’m not enough

I can't be all things to all people. I'm always letting someone down. I know that. On some level, I know that trying to be what everyone else wants/needs is a pursuit that will never end well. I also know that I probably place more of those pressures on myself than anyone else. But don't we all… Continue reading I’m not enough

Being happy

Being happy is not just 'not being sad'. Being happy is your soul singing, the good emotions bubbling from the depth of your belly, loving your life so much you can find good in every day. In my humble opinion anyway. We can't just expect 'happy' in our life. Although I'm sure many do. Happy is something… Continue reading Being happy

IT’S AN INNIE THING

I have hit THE WALL. Not literally, no car crashes or broken fists or anything like that. But that metaphorical wall has come up and hit me in the face. Again. Before writing this I was sitting in my wardrobe staring at my shoes. For quite a while. Pretty much not having the physical or… Continue reading IT’S AN INNIE THING

WOULD THE REAL ME PLEASE STAND UP

I haven't been posting so much the last couple of weeks. I don't know what to say. Which is VERY unusual for me. It's not that I don't have anything to write, it's that there's just so much. I've mentioned before that I feel like I'm in a real transitory place - accepting a new… Continue reading WOULD THE REAL ME PLEASE STAND UP

TO INSULATE OR EXPOSE TO THE WORLD?

Those of you who know me, or who follow my blog, will know I have no problem stating things as I see them. I'm a pretty very open person and you'll pretty much always know where I stand on an issue. While blogging gives me time to think and articulate my thoughts (I've written about this before), when… Continue reading TO INSULATE OR EXPOSE TO THE WORLD?

I BLOG BECAUSE…

A big part of the reason I started this blog was to find my voice. My authentic voice. To work out, in the midst of this life, which has gone through some pretty monumental shift in the last few years, who I really am. You may ask 'how could a blog help?' which is a fair… Continue reading I BLOG BECAUSE…

WHY LOWERING STANDARDS IS AWESOME

There have been many lessons for all of us to learn in the blending of Harris6. A big one for me has been to be realistic. Honestly, perfection just does not sit well in a house of six, four of them children, four of them males! It's been a long road but I have finally started… Continue reading WHY LOWERING STANDARDS IS AWESOME

LABELS: HIS HERS MINE YOURS OURS

Throughout life there are labels foisted upon us, we no doubt impose labels on ourselves as well. Some are necessary, it's how we categorise the world. To be honest, I think labels are all about perception, so what one person may label us is quite possibly the complete opposite of what society may label us. But that's a whole… Continue reading LABELS: HIS HERS MINE YOURS OURS

MOTHERS DAY

'Conflicted' isn't usually a word I would use to describe my feelings over Mothers Day. But this year, I'm definitely being challenged. Sad, angry, hopeful, lost, proud, guilty, contemplative... Missing my mum this year is totally eclipsing  the fact that Mothers Day has anything to do with me, and the role I play in my own… Continue reading MOTHERS DAY
