Usually at our end of term nights out I arrange a guest speaker to come along, but last November I thought I would say a few words instead. After all I train these girls every week so maybe they should get to know a bit more about me. Mamas Journeys has been operating for nearly 18 months and some days it still feels surreal. What was once just a vision, is now a reality.
After having a baby, things change. Your body changes, your relationships change and priorities shift. 2017 was a massive year for me. It was when I separated from my husband, moved out of our family home and shortly after started back at work. My daughter was only 9 months old. Looking back now I don’t know how I did it but at the time, I just remember feeling like I could take on anything, what I wanted was so clear, like I had superpowers. Sure, I cried A LOT, like every single day and my hormones were all over the place but I dealt with it the best I could and above all else always put my daughter first. Have I had regrets? Of course, I have, it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, but I came out the other side.
