‘What if I fall, oh my darlin, what if you fly’ Dr Suess
I’m a mum, it’s my job, I love it and can’t imagine having any other job now that I have taken on this amazing roll. Every day I do my best to encourage and inspire them to one day be wonderfully well rounded adults… fingers crossed. I give them what life experiences I can offer, from independent skills of cooking and cleaning through to understanding the world of diversity in which we live. I have two girls and a boy who I don’t want to fear the independence and spontenaerty that life can offer, I dream for them to do anything and everything they want but maybe more so because I wished I had done a little more? If they choose not to, then I’m also happy but I feel I need to show them to go for your dreams, live life to the full and not to fear the unknown.
I would love to show them somehow through how I live that the possibilities in life are endless and that anything you wish to achieve, if you put your whole heart into it, you can.
So I am… I’m showing them that if I can face fears and fight for what I want to do… they can to!
A lesson in life that will, I hope bring only wonderful things to my three beautiful babies.
My challenge I have set is to trek a mountain, I don’t do excercise, don’t do the unknown and don’t do feeling ill well (arghhh what am I doing!)… but I do love our gorgeous world, beautiful places, architecture, the landscapes carved out by nature, plus seeing the world through the eyes of others in a place built in times gone by.
Next year I’m taking on the trek the Inca people took over 550 years ago leading to Machu Pechu. It’s mainly to raise awareness for the charity British heart foundation (thats a whole other post) but also I hope this challenge helps my children to see that giving up on something because it’s difficult doesn’t get you anywhere and that if you want to do something it is ‘mostly’ always possible. I’m so rocking the mantra of ‘mummy power’ as I start my training over the next year…. let the madness commence #bucketlist #mummypower
