Be Yourself-The Self Worth Challenge

uakN0Z1441307631Welcome to the last instalment in The Self-Worth Challenge where each week I have addressed a topic related to self-worth.

Over the past weeks we I have covered many issues related to how to build our self-worth from accepting our uniqueness, acknowledging and owning our strengths to considering the importance of our feelings. It has been a great pleasure to devote this time to such an important topic and been an absolute privilege to have so many of you following and working through the series.

If you are new to the challenge you might want to start at the beginning and work your way through the series. The very first post is linked here.

Fantasies of Motherhood

s38ZUQ1432843807One of my readers gave me the idea for this blog. She mentioned that she didn’t live up to her fantasy of what a mother is. That set me thinking about the ideas that we all carry round in our heads of what motherhood will be like and more importantly, what kind of mother we will be.

For me I was quite unsure of how I would be. I had not wanted children for most of my life until a very unexpected change of heart came upon me. Finding babies slightly scary I could not really imagine myself as a mum. Continue reading
