Now it’s easy to find what will help you most

By Lesley | August 4, 2020 | 0 Comments

I started my website in 2013 & this is blog no 189. 40 of those are Inspirational Stories, but at a guess I’ve written 150 to 200,000 words or, to put it another way, between 2 & 3 books. Crikey! I’ve changed a lot in those 7 years & so has my writing. In addition to finally coming to terms with being childless, in that time I lost my Dad, worked through the grief I’d been holding on to, wrote & published my book Finding Joy & have come to a place of peace & contentment. Crikey again!! Perhaps you’ve been with me throughout & have gone through similar changes. Or maybe you found me more recently, or are at an earlier stage of coming to terms with being childless. Wherever you are on your journey, there’s something for you in my blogs. But it’s been hard to find. Until now. So now it’s easy to find what will help you most (even if you don’t know what that is) When I spent time reading through all those blogs, I realised that they can be grouped into a small number of subjects. So I’ve done some work behind the scenes & on darker green menu above you’ll find a page for each of the subjects below.   You can probably guess what they cover from the headings & just in case you’re not sure, below are short explanations: Grief Blogs about the thing you most want to avoid but must … Read more Now it’s easy to find what will help you most
