It seems blogging has taken a back seat in my life for awhile now, as my youtube videos and coaching have been taking up a lot of my time. I am so pleased at the way both of these have been going over the last year. My client numbers are on the up and my youtube channel is bringing in a small income.
I am currently feeling quietly proud of my achievements in the last 2 years, as I never thought that anybody would notice me. My husband always told me that I have a talent for listening, empathising & supporting others but I always took it for granted, as it is all I have known. It has been a blessing and a curse at the same time!
From always feeling like my mental health struggles always took something away from me, now I feel that because of these same struggles, I am helping others & working at the same time! This feeling is hugely rewarding. Doing something you love, whilst also making a difference.
My life has also improved greatly because of our darling puppy. She is now nearly 8 months old and is still as affectionate & playful as she was when she was tiny. It has been a huge boost for my mental health, as walking her and attending to her needs for play and stimulation, has kept me living in the moment.
Although I am currently juggling being a wife, puppy mum, life coach, youtube video creator and a facilities assistant at a part time position here in Germany, life couldn’t be better.
It’s been ages since I have been able to look back on my life and say that it has been consistent and stable. The dramas have luckily minimised and the hurt and grief associated with my Dad, is less prevalent. Although I still struggle with a constant feeling of tiredness due to my CPTSD, that is manageable thankfully.
My mother is coming to stay with us for Easter, so I am expecting a tiny bit of drama whilst my husband is away for 1 of the nights. It’s nothing I can’t handle though. It’s been a year since I last saw her and even longer since my husband last saw her, so I am pretty sure it will be fine. Easter is pretty boring here in Germany, as everything is shut for 2 days, so having extra company, might not be such a bad thing.
