Discovering Who I am

Welcome, thank you for taking time to browse.

After writing almost 200 blogs over 7 years I realised how much support there was here & how hard it was for readers to find what they most needed.

I’ve therefore created a number of pages where you can find blogs about different topics.

You can dig deeper under the ‘search the blogs’ menu option.

In March 2022 I tweaked my website so I’m no longer specifically supporting childless women.

I have realized that my path is ‘to discover who I am at the deepest level, to find my natural alignment, feel it & follow that feeling.’

I don’t have the answers, but I am keen to explore questions such as ‘Who am I, what do I want, what’s my purpose, what’s important to me, & how do I want to spend my time?

The way ahead feels like an exciting partly completed canvas; there are features (such as yoga, creativity, travel, time with family & friends) & I’m excited to fill in the gaps, exploring each contour of my life, my body, knowing that there will be dead ends, U-turns &, if it’s like the past few years, more joy (& challenges) than I ever thought possible.

You can read more below

You can read the blogs I’ve written about discovering who I am below, some of which were written before I made the changes.

There’s obviously a cross over between the different subjects,

You can also use the search blog menu option to dig deeper.

And there’s more in my book, Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness.
