Starting a blog is scary. Really scary. I’ve been procrastinating for too long now though. It’s time to ditch ‘the fear’ and get going. So here I am. Hi.
People always say that if you are going to blog, make sure it is something that you are passionate about. Tick. There is nothing I could be more passionate about than my wonderful mother and telling the world about her. When she died I really wasn’t sure how I’d be in a year but I am still standing. Admittedly, I am reduced to a crawl when I’ve been on the vino blanc, but you get my drift. I’m mainly standing.
Rather than just rambling on and on I am setting myself creative challenges to spread the word about mum. I will write about these on here whilst telling you a few stories of past and present along the way. This is not going to be a morbid read for you, I promise you that. More smiles, less tears. It’s about battling through the pain of losing someone and doing something special. Something beautiful. My mum would have loved this which is exactly why I am doing it.
I’ve got big ideas, small ideas and even ideas involving the readers of this blog. (If i get any. Awkward.) I want this to be a good read for anyone that stumbles across it (or is forced to read it by myself stood over their computer – watch out). So many people seem to be afraid of talking about the loss of a loved one. I don’t think it should be such a taboo subject and I want to try something new. If this inspires anyone then that’s a bonus.
I am going to be posting regularly, assuming I don’t forget my password. “What a stupid thing to do?” I hear you say. Well you are listening to a girl who lost 2 bank cards within a month. Anything is possible. Sometimes I even surprise myself.
Come back again to find out what happened when I left a message on 60 postcards around Paris.
There is a reason I posted this today. Happy Mother’s Day to my inspiration.
Ciao for now.
