I started taking my blog seriously, and sharing it, almost two years ago. The purpose was to help myself heal from post-natal depression. Revealing that vulnerability terrified me, shook up some relationships in my life and strengthened others. I fell in love with writing again and gave myself permission to do it simply for the joy it brought me.
But it did more than bring me joy- it brought peace of mind. I received countless messages of love and support from friends old and new. They shared their personal struggles with me and we all felt less alone. Then I landed in a wonderful blogging community, they are beyond supportive and contribute an endless supply of inspiration.
I’m proud to announce that Kangaroo Spotting is now an official Australian Business. I’m not quite sure the exact shape it will take but right now it’s all about lining up the ducks.
And oh yeah, my Etsy Store, it’s finally launched! There are actual items for sale in there. It’s a bit time consuming, the whole Etsy set-up, I’ve been tinkering for a while and I’m still learning. Won’t you take a little look and let me know what you think?
4. I am grateful for living a creative life.
It feels like all of my work, tears and hope over the last few years are starting to become this tangible thing. I’m beyond grateful for being able to follow my dream.
What would you do if you were free to be anything?
