I am going to be 42 years old this year, a magical age for me for two reasons – it’s the answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything (for the Hitchhikers fans out there) and because I remember my mother being 42. She was pretty happy about being 42, I seem to recall and I feel pretty happy about it too.
I have three beautiful children whose photos appear on the banner of this blog. My eldest is Catherine, who is 14, tall and beautiful. She is a talented artist and excells academically in many of her subjects at school. She recently completed the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award and I am more proud of her than I can express.
My second child is Keiran. Loving and gentle, intelligent and geeky, he is 7 years old and loves playing computer games and Star Wars. He is the most caring big brother I know and takes great delight in humour of all kinds.
Naomi is the youngest, a Christmas Day gift 4 1/2 years ago. She is gregarious and loving too, just now she has thrown her arms around my neck, kissed me and told me she loves me for the umpteenth time today. She is determined and knows her own mind. Sometimes she seems to have knowledge far beyond her years.
My love, my soulmate, is the most amazing, frustrating and sexy man I’ve ever met. He has enabled me to do so much more with my life than I ever dreamed had the capability to do. I have changed so much since knowing him, kicking and screaming all the way. One of his favourite sayings is ‘if you believe it, it is’ and I just want to slap him every time he says it. He also says he has everything he wants, right now and this also triggers arguments because there is so much more I want than what we have. Through it all, I know change is painful and I know that he will always be there for me. I love him very much. He is also spectacularly good in bed 🙂
As for me, I’m on a journey this year. I am trying to find a path of balance between my logical, reasoning side and my intuitive, amazing, powerful woman goddess side. I am sharing my journey on this blog because writing helps me sort through things, sharing might inspire someone else, my mum likes to know what I get up to and maybe I might turn it all into a book one day.
I love ladies barbershop, public speaking, cooking and peace and quiet. I dream of a house by the sea and days spent walking on the beach. I am starting a business teaching speech, language and communication skills to preschool children and offer training to teachers, nursery workers, childminders, parents and anyone else who has an interest in the wellbeing of our children.
I am lucky to have a soul-soaking, supportive, magical circle of goddesses in The Goddess Circle and when there’s stuff I can’t share publically I offload there. There are so many wise and giving women there who support me and help me along my path. I’m grateful to have found them.
There are also a whole heap of soul-saving, life-giving e-courses on this site. The Goddess Year Workbook and Planner was the start of my journey. The Business Goddess e-course has been a challenge for me but I’m working through it. The next thing I want to do is the Goddess Haven e-course. The Meditations are just beautiful too.
