I'm Back Blogging Again

Friday, 14 September 2018

It's been a long while since I blogged on this website.  I seriously considered throwing in the towel, closing down this website and deleting my name.  It was a burning desire to be a blogger for years however life (motherhood) got in the way and maintaining a blog was the very last thing I had the energy to do.  However, with the encouragement from my friends and so many ideas in my head, I've decided to re-launch my blog.   Afrosandhightea is back!

I'm back, and I'm hopeful that I will be consistent. I've cleared space and made it a priority to blog.   I'm back and I want to share what's on my heart, what's going on and show my passion to empower and inspire people.  So this is my first post after months.  Let me fill you in on what's been happening.

My kids have grown so much

The baby I had from the positive birth story is nearly 3 years old.  In some ways time has flown by. However, learning to cope, cultivate and distribute time and energy to 2 children has been tough and a very long process.  I love the way my kids are old enough to talk to each other, play (and fight) and love and support each other.

I've gained weight

Right now I don't look like most of my pictures on this blog. Over the past 18 months I've filled out a bit more.  I don't really like it to be honest with you but stress, not making myself a priority, tiredness, and a lack of fun has caused me to eat more.  I exercise less these days, which I'm trying to change.  Right now I'm on a journey to be consistent with exercise and eat less sugar and more plant based food.

I've been doing a shed load of public speaking

I'm a speaker at a church and I speak to 600-800 people each time. I've been speaking nearly every month for the past year. It's one of my passions that I get to create and express myself through empowering people.  This is something I am looking to develop further.

I'm returning to work after being a full-time stay at home mother

I've been a stay at home mum for three years and my time is nearly up as my youngest starts nursery school in January. I'm excited to get out, have some time to myself and focus on some projects.  However, I'm aware that I might miss the freedom of being at home with my daughter. Right now I learning to develop my confidence and begin the process of rehabilitating myself into the world that doesn't involve the school gate, toddler groups and daytime TV. 

It's good to be back blogging and I look forward to sharing much more.
