This post follows on from last week’s 7 Reasons it’s Great to be a WAHM post as although I love being a mum, I am also fighting for my career choice to be seen accepted.

It’s almost Christmas and whilst I am loving every minute of continuing the folklore of Santa for my children, I also hate the fact that it cannot ever be like my Christmas experience as a child…. that’s my holiday conundrum! Continue reading

But on the other hand it allows you to connect to people who you wouldn’t otherwise stay in contact with, see some amazing things and be part of the global community of our wonderful planet.

Last night, as is my normal Sunday evening practice, I meditated and asked for guidance on what to work on for this week. I ask for something that is important to for me to learn more about during the next 7 days. This time it was Balance. Continue reading
