I'm Striking Out

The lovely Kate, from Kate on Thin Ice, has started an initiative. She is trying to get us mums, that have fallen into a bit of a rut, to strike out for ourselves. 

It's also about showing support for other mothers, across social networks. We can learn from one another just how capable we are, what we are able to achieve.

This week, to start us off, she had set a small challenge. Something to get us started. It's a blog post about what we want to achieve.

The timing is perfect for me, with the children going back to school. 

So what do I want to achieve? What can I do, to get myself out of this rut, I've allowed myself to fall into. In all honesty, the list is long!

I want to tidy up my sewing table/desk. It's got very cluttered over the school holidays, it's not inspiring me.

I am going to push myself to continue my walking, and try to keep upping those steps!

I am going to cook healthier meals, if the boys won't eat it then I'll improvise, but they can try. I have already put this in place, with next week's meal plan.

I'm going be more aware of my capabilities. Kate reached out and asked me to design the Striking Mums badge, which I did (hope you like it). People are making money doing this kind of thing, maybe it's time to look into what I'm worth.

Time to recognise that I am my own person. I've always felt a little unworthy, next to my brothers. Not that they have made me felt this way, it's just they are in very respectable careers and I've never felt up to their standard. Maybe it's time to recognise that I am creative, that's my talent.

So what do you want to achieve? Whether you blog or not, share with us. You never know, maybe supporting each another will work.

  1. It's taken me time to realise that being 'just a stay at home mum' is ok, I'm comfortable with that side of things but recently I've started to find my feet in expressing myself creatively, something I haven't done in years. The striking mums badge looks great!
