Leaf out of a friends book....

I had started a blog on BellyBelly, a parenting forum that I have been a part of since I was pregnant with Aston in 2006. I was going to copy the entries that I had made to that blog over, but on reading them I decided against it. This is a new start, and new page, and I don't want to fill it up with negativity, or sadness. That is what seems to dominate my last blog. Sadness. Is it because I only write when I feel sad, lost, alone, and trying to make sense of my surroundings?

There seems to have been a mass migration out of bellybelly of late. I can only speak for my reasons as to why I don't participate as much as I used to. I guess everything has a season, and maybe my season in that arena has finished.

I have made many many friends through that forum, so for that I am eternally grateful. Some I have been lucky enough to actually meet in real life, including one who asked me to be present at the birth of her second child - a priviledge and a gift.

Another friend that I chat to online with has recently left the forum, and taken stock of her life, and started a blog. She is using it as a record of positivity and action in her life. I like the idea of that. A place to record the good - the bad - the beautiful - the ugly... not just focus on the negativity.

I need a shift in perspective - a change of view so to speak...

So as I take stock of my own life, and what is important in it, what I want to achieve, my successes, and reflections, I will record it. To look back upon and see how far I have come.

  2. Good on you hun! A new start and a place to reflect on the positive and wonderful things in life is a great place to be at. Beware though - it is just as, if not more addictive than BB! :) AM looking forward to sharing your blogging journey with you!


Thanks for stopping by... Leave some love :-)
