Worry is the thief of Joy…

My biggest anxiety in life, and I’m sure I’m not alone, is the struggle to enjoy life when things are going well as I get a horrible, stomach turning feeling that something is going to go wrong. Even without explanation. The struggle to enjoy the ‘now’ for fear of something taking the happiness away isContinue reading “Worry is the thief of Joy…”

Can you completely change who you are but still stay the same?

Before I had a baby I used to think of people with children as adults. That when you had children you suddenly became a grown up who would know everything and have it all together somehow. Like there was going to be some sort of shift overnight?! I thought I’d be more mature and sensible…Continue reading “Can you completely change who you are but still stay the same?”
