A gorgeous lady once told me "you will never succeed in anything unless you have PASSION"
I have tried to follow this belief for nearly 6 years now and it has certainly changed my life thus far!! I have gone from being a small business owner of two stores (I am a florist by trade) married, mother of one. To divorced, tho now very happily partnered and mother of two. I realised that my passion was no longer to strive for individual success, but to delve into what it is I am truly passionate about. I am totally passionate towards my family- my ever patient and truly wonderful 'Darl' and my two children Ava (7) and Bill (10 mths), my closest and dearest girlfriends (you three know who you are ... but if you don't - wong, kuko & dusty) , my ever supportive parents and of course 'CREATING' all things - my life, my craft (flowers, sewing the later I'd actually call it an addiction) well to fabric anyway!!
I guess this 'gorgeous lady' was my 'Fairy God Mother' for she gave me the gift to believe and find my PASSION
FAIRY GOAT MUMMA
Fairy - My daughter Ava has always been fascinated by all things magical 'she believes in fairies'
Goat - My son William (Billy, Bill) used to make the most astonishing bleating noises from birth
Mumma - well that's just me and I love being one
This analogy has come to me by sheer thoughts - it was nothing planned I just sat and wrote. To many it is probably 'gibberish' but to me writing my thoughts in a nightly journal has always helped me decongest my ever thinking brain. How can one have so many thoughts, ideas and contain them? I certainly can't! So instead of exercise books and diaries strewn over the bedroom floor and tossed under the bed. I hope I will find not only a means to express, but an outlet to inspire and heal.
I plan to just go with the flow and blog what it is that I need to let go, nothing in particular - lets just see what the day brings.
With that its almost 1am and time for shut eye and lets see what tomorrow brings?
It might be Prince Charming - Oh yeah hes already here xx (now lets all vomit - bit too sickly sweet)
