I’m back… I think….

A long time has passed since I last posted here. And, accordingly, a lot has happened.

In February we had a baby girl. We named her Cali.

Felix has just turned 2 and is developing so fast it is blowing my mind.

He really enjoyed his train themed birthday a couple of weeks ago.

Yummy choo choo!

While the kids are thriving I have been having trouble coping with life over the past year. It’s been a crazy roller coaster and I have recently decided that it’s time to get off. That doesn’t happen with a snap of the fingers. It happens with dedication towards self improvement and a steady search for inner peace.

I’m going to start writing here more often, with honesty and openness, about my struggles with my life and myself. While my intentions are good I will most likely have trouble keeping up consistent posting, but I think that it is a vital step in improving myself so I will do my best.  I’m also trying to improve my physical health by drinking more water and eating well, as I know that mental health and physical health are indelibly linked.

So, please, bear with me while I struggle and blather.

I am tidal.

20120601-200017.jpg

I ebb and flow.
I have ups and downs, sometimes very drastic ones.
I move forward and pull back.
And every now and then I sit still for a moment and just be.

I am tidal.

My passion comes in waves. I can obsess over an activity, entertainment or idea for days, weeks, months, then drop it again in a day. Some of my obsessions have a slightly more regular rhythm, like my passion for Instagramming which swells and fades away again fairly often. Even in the span of a day I go through a steady ebb and low of energy and motivation.

I am tidal.

I am ok with this in general. But I know an important part of parenting is consistency. It’s not cool to have a mum that is fine with you running around screaming ‘I’m a little teapot’ one day then flips out about it the next.
