Since having Caleb in May this year I’ve spent time thinking about who I am & what I want from life. I lost myself. There’s no denying that the first 6 weeks were the hardest. I was consumed by my experience of having an emergency C-Section & I was in pain while I recovered.
It’s a crucial time after having a Baby & support from friends & family can help massively. The visitors who once flocked to see my Baby Boy had disappeared. It was a reality check.
My life had changed massively but it felt even more intense that friends didn’t keep in touch as often & it became increasingly isolating. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that everyone has their own lives & problems. Never underestimate the power of a text message or having a coffee with someone because it can really help them feel a sense of normality in a chaotic world.
I’ve come to realise that my life has changed but I haven’t. I’m still Leann. Once I discovered that, things started to click back into place & I reached out to friends to remind them I’m still me & I can still get out & about even with a little one.
I even lost myself in the blogging community & felt I wasn’t a part of it.
Who Am I?
I’m Leann; proud Mum, Wife, daughter, auntie, newly appointed Programme Co-Ordinator with a charity & a blogger.
What Do I Want From Life?
I want to set those goals I never thought I could achieve & to push myself from my comfort zone. I want to it for me & for Caleb.
I have lots to look forward to in my new job & home life & I’m looking forward to what the coming months have in store.
