Okay I am over the shock of seeing myself over at The Guardian Live Better Campaign.
Well, kind of.
When I started blogging in October 2010, there was no destination in mind. No plan.
I’d started on a journey toward a family life simply done the previous April.
But you know this, I’ve told the story countless times before.
My spontaneous blogging journey has been (in the words of Craig Revel-Horwood)
I love every minute. Even the minutes when I become paralysed with fear than I have over-shared.
Or as Dr Brene Brown would describe it…when I develop a vulnerability hangover.
(If you are a vulnerability hangover sufferer check this TED talk out. Brene talks about considering breaking into YouTube and stealing a video of herself talking – so it can’t be streamed)
This is all starting to sound like a rather labourious thank you speech at an awards ceremony.
I didn’t win anything, did I? (looking around with a quizzical expression)
Nope, not an award in sight. But I’m feeling very honoured.
