A short post today.
But an important one.
I’m back, and excited to be blogging again. I took a break to be with my baby, and now life has settled into a good rhythm.
Excellence is not an act, but a habit. (Aristotle)
Recognize this? You want to be fitter and more toned, so you set yourself a challenge: "I'll go to the gym every night after work!" Or: "I'll run 5k every morning before breakfast!"
You're super excited: you buy a new running top, the first few days you start really strong... and then...
To anyone who is fairly new here: welcome!
And to people who have been following my blog for a while: hello again!
I wanted to send a little update on my blog...
The premise for my website is that average people can do amazing things.
I totally believe it.
Your average, run-of-the-mill person can absolutely turn their life around (if they want).
I was feeling a bit overwhelmed recently.
I have a new baby, I’m running my business, and we don’t have any family support around us.
It can get a bit much from time to time.
I was talking with our public health nurse recently, and she said:
What is success?
Sometimes, before I write these posts, I get caught up in my head.
I get freaked out about how good the post has to be.
I start thinking about how life-changing it has to be…
Unhelpful thoughts sneak into my head.
I’ve been a minimalist for years now... and I love it.
Now, I’m not a militant, “don’t-own-anything” kind of person.
I just feel better with less clutter around me. And I prefer to spend money on activities rather than things.
One thing I noticed when I was pregnant was that I was often really harsh on myself for what I ate.
I eat pretty healthily (I know that’s relative!) – but if I had a bad day, I would treat myself to a donut or a chocolate bar.
And I was getting more and more annoyed by this.
