"We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing" - Louisa May Alcott

So in a months time I will be having a little blogging anniversary as my blog celebrates in first year! The last twelve months has been a great venture for me, getting to write and express myself, exploring my creative skills, documenting my thoughts and feelings and discovering the ups and downs and ins and outs of twitter!

The blogging community on the most part has been welcoming, friendly and inspiring, but sometimes I find myself falling in to the trap of comparing myself to others, how their blog is more polished than mine, or that they get more interaction on twitter, sometimes I think that my life isn't as exciting, glamorous or desirable as some of the ladies I follow on twitter, I don't have designer shoes or expensive make up, I don't have lots of other mummy friends to meet up with every week and well, quite frankly I live in a very unhip area of Somerset so I have no cool places to visit or hang out. I have all these ideas in my head about what I could do to make an impact in the world, how to inspire, where I could lead my passions and when I should be doing something great but I just don't know how, what, where or when to to get even started and yet everyone else is out there doing their thing and being great at it too...

Sometimes, in fact a lot of the time I feel left behind and I have a huge sense being lost and not feeling good enough to be any of the things that everyone else is doing, but then from nowhere, I get a spark of something as I remember that what I am trying to achieve is my destiny, not anyone else, just mine! My dreams, ambitions, my beliefs and goals are all great because they are mine, they are what makes me, well me! I think I'm OK, I like me quite a lot, I think me is a girl with a lot going for her and if she works hard enough she can achieve, everything! And then I realise, it doesn't matter what others are doing because that's their dream, the only thing I need to be looking at is believing in me, that's what will continue to lead me to the end of my rainbow!

What is the stuff that your dreams are made of?


  1. I don't know who said it, but I once read that the trouble with blogs/Twitter/Facebook is that we're comparing our own behind the scenes to everyone else's highlight reel.

    Makes sense to me! Happy blog anniversary. xo

    1. As usual my friend you speak more words of wisdom than I do, that's why I love you! From now on I am always going to try to have a reality check when I feel myself slipping in to this mode, I should know better than anyone that what you see is not really how it is!

  2. Love this...such a good post (well said). Happy 1st year to your blog and many more to come. I can empathise a lot with this post xx

  3. Glad you like it lovely! Needed to give my mind and my heart a little reality check! X
