Welcome to Finding Myself Young,

I started my blog in 2012 while I was going through the process of getting divorced from a very controlling man. It was a stressful and frustrating time, but at the same time I was glad to be free – so I started a blog about it. I really feel that through the process of leaving my marriage I started to find myself again after years of feeling trapped and lost, so I decided on the name Finding Myself Young, because that’s what I was doing. This is my place to get my thoughts out of my head and onto paper (or at least a computer screen) where, for some reason, they make more sense. This is my free therapy. Read more about how I found myself again.

Fast forward a few years and my blog has become all about my journey through life. I've been engaged to an amazing man for a few years now and in 2013 we welcomed our first child, a little girl, after a long infertility journey. She certainly keeps me busy and highly entertained. I recently turned 30 and I guess that means I'm officially an adult and need to grow up. I used to work full time, but I'm currently on extended maternity leave and enjoying being a mum while indulging my passion for writing on the side. I still don't know exactly what I want to be when I grow up, but being a mum was definitely high on the list and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I haven't had an average life so my blog probably isn't your typical mummy blog. There are posts about happiness, love, relationships, divorce, family, loss, infertility, as well as pregnancy, babies and all the ups and downs of parenting a toddler going on teenager.

I don't know what's going to happen in the future, but I'm looking forward to it. Why not grab a cuppa and join me on my journey. Thankyou so much for stopping by my little patch on the internet, I do hope to see you again soon.

Remember to stop and appreciate the little things.
