Metaphysical Mama’s Questions
What has blogging taught you about yourself?
I’ve definitely discovered so much more about my mental health. It’s made me a lot more vigilant around what impacts how I feel. And when I need to take a step back and look after myself. It’s also shown me that I can make time for the things I really believe in.
How do you make yourself feel better when you’re having a bad day?
Sometimes it’s about taking it back to basics. Anything that is a little bit something for me. But my favourites are a leisurely warm bubble bath, snuggled in bed with a scented candle and a book or Netflix. Although, during the day if I need a reset I can’t beat getting myself out of the house for some fresh air!
Who are you most grateful for?
My lovely little girl. She came into the world in the middle of a pandemic. And we weren’t able to celebrate in many of the ways she imagined. And her first few months she didn’t get to have many of the formative experiences young kids so often do. But she has been an absolute joy and has kept our entire family smiling in the hard times.
What’s your favourite book?
This is such a hard question. And nothing springs to mind immediately. But I always adore anything by Matt Haig. My particular favourites were The Humans and The Midnight Library.
Where do you see yourself a year from now?
Hopefully without the spectre of Covid looming large. And appreciating all the ‘normal’ parts of life that I think I took for granted 18 months ago. I hope my daughter is thriving and is able to enjoy life and getting to know the people in her life. I hope I’m still investing in my blog but also in myself and haven’t forgotten the importance of kindness.
