(Art Work Credited to TatterBeans)
It has been six months.... Since I quit my day job and entered into Therapeutic Parenting.
Ive regreted it all at times, Ive rejocied in it at times.....
Ive seen the light, lost it and found it again.
Ive pulled my hair out and its regrown.
Ive cried myself to sleep at night, and woke up laughing.
Ive been bored out my mind,but to busy to think.
It seems like only yesterday when we made the decisions that I would come out of the white collar world, and become a SAHM to our two RADdlings.(not sure what RADdlings means check over in the right hand column)

I did start to do some creative work again slowly but it was surely.
I then asked a question to two women online who I admire, one for her ability to put into words what we are all thinking and the other for her artistic talent ....
"What do you think to my work?''
There response was positive, they told me to go for it and not look back.
I am crap at self belief .... Im even worse at self promotion.
I'm scared of failure ...and I always think everyone else is soooo much better than me ... which as I write this I still believe to be true...
But and here is the positive, I have stepped out ...Ive even stepped up .... I took a leap of faith ...... and I did just what everyone had been telling me to do....
It is early days and all business take time to grow and be known ..... maybe I will succeed maybe I wont.
It wont matter either way.......the important thing is Me is back ...the one who is alive and kicking ......
*And if anyone wants to know what it is I'm up to...there are hints of it all on this site
