The Blogging Awards are here

I sit here in the darkness of the night. The familiar sound of silence ringing in my ears. There is nothing more peaceful or more magical then sitting in silence in the dark and writing, even just thinking or meditating.

It is something I really don’t take for granted especially now I have two very beautiful and very energetic children to keep me busy.

I am a deep thinker and I tend to think about everything far too much. So I find the best time for me is in the evenings. I get to sit quietly once my babies are in bed and write. I have a little diary and I have this big blog, both very special to me in many ways each full of my ramblings and each documenting snippets and bits of my life along the way.

I started blogging in December 2014 just as I was coming up to finish my degree the next June, and I would never have imagined what a god send it would have been for me.

It has given me so much, happiness, laughter, and work, it has allowed me to make friends, earn money and be creative. All these things have contributed to making my motherhood journey ever more sweet and so full of this beautiful essence I can’t entirely describe to you. But it is full of a lot of love and I’m grateful for that.

I have my little Sophia laying next to me, she is not very well with a temperature and a sick bug. Archie had it earlier this week so I can’t remember the amount of times I have washed the bed covers this week but it’s been a lot.

It is nearly 12 midnight and I should be asleep just in case I am up with Sophia all night but I couldn’t keep away. I don’t feel like I have really laid my soul out on the blog for a while and that disturbs me slightly. God knows why, but it does.

I wrote a couple of posts on Instagram the other day each on Sophia that really resonated with some of you and you gave me some beautiful comments and mostly reiterated to me that you go through it too, and that made my day.

When I get to connect with people from all around the world who I wouldn’t normally have been able to meet in my ordinary life, and know that we both experience the same thing I feel good.

I feel like I have achieved something maybe made you realise the same thing I realised? And to me that is special. We all go through life together, we experience all of it uniquely but we go through the same deep feelings of love of worry, anger and frustration. We are all the same but different and it is something I think we all take for granted.

We each have the power invested deep inside each of us to lift each other up or bring each other down. I hope that this ‘big o’l blog’ of mine as I said earlier (even though it is still very little) I hope it resonates with you, I hope it gives you something along the way on your journey.

And either way whatever you take from my blog I hope it is good because that is what I want of it to be a little bit of my light of the goodness that exists in the world.

So on that note I will leave you with a little goodbye as I will be back soon with another post and if you read my blog or enjoy it in anyway how extremely grateful I would be if you voted for me in the two upcoming blogging awards that are taking votes at the moment.

If you don’t know anything about them they are a pretty big deal in the blogging world. They mean something to us bloggers, they recognise all our hard work and our commitment. They recognise our niches, our creativity and our words. It’s recognition for the beautiful community that has been created here online and although there are so many wonderful blogs with the most inspirational stories and photographs we all have something different to give to this online world, and if I don’t ask I am sure I won’t get so I welcome your votes open heartedly and I wish you all a good day.

I will leave all details below so it is easy and straight forward for you.
