Welcome to my blog! I’m 28 living in the Hertfordshire countryside. I decided to start this blog to document my journey into a happier, healthier, peaceful, more passionate lifestyle. I am currently a full time carer for two members of my immediate family, something which hopefully I will be able to balance more and allow me to venture into a new lifestyle I so desperately crave!
My life is taking care of other people, and while I love it, I also absolutely resent it. It is difficult, I have no contracted hours, I have no help, I don’t have sick pay. It all starts and ends with me. I recently had a an epiphany and realised I was not brought into this world to be a slave to everybody else. Usually I “finish” work and I have a banging headache because I’ve had no time to eat or drink anything, therefore I just get something quick and easy and not healthy because my body is screaming out for sugar and carbs. I felt so unwell the other night that I knew something had to give; that if something didn’t change it would be me that paid the ultimate sacrifice. You only get one life but at the same time – You only get one body! So I decided to take accountability for me and change what I can change and focus on myself a little bit more.
I hope you enjoy this very raw, honest, truthful account of my journey! Let’s go!
