I’m new to blogging, I used to journal when I was a teenager, analogue style with pen and paper in beautiful bound note books with wildly coloured covers.
I stopped in my early 20’s after reading back some of the things I’d written earlier that year. I was so full of angst and uncertainty. Uncomfortable in my own body, uncomfortable in the presence of others and so unsure of my place in the world.
Fast forward decades (Oh my gosh yes, 2 decades to be exact) and here I am. A Wife, a Mother, an “Artist” and a hell of a lot more certain about who I am than I have ever been at any other time in my life.
So, here’s the deal, I’m going to give this blogging thing a crack. I like to write (I freaking love it, actually), and it’s been missing from my life for what feels like FOREVER. I’m applying myself and the deal I’ve made with the little Carrie voice inside my head, is to Blog Consistently – every day in fact – for 12 months.
I can’t guarantee everything I share here will be rivetingly interesting, I don’t consider my life fantastically exciting, but I feel like I’ve got some cool things to share. Through my Art, through constantly learning the meaning of ‘Mum’ and finding what it is I want my legacy to be, not just for my children, but the space and people around me and our environment.
So, buckle up kids, I really hope you join me in this little journey of mine. I’m going to do my best to give this a red-hot crack, so please feel free to keep me honest, comments and feedback are always welcome! And Please feel free to share this with friends, family, whoever if you think they’d enjoy what you are reading too.
