It felt like I have been holding my breath for the past 18 months. Afraid that if I dare breathe out, everything would come crumbling down.
I was being pulled in all directions, I had quite a few people depending on me for really important things and I had to step up and push aside my needs, my dreams, my passions to be there for them.
I’m not complaining nor do I regret my decision but having to take on these responsibilities that would have an impact the futures of friend and families was not an easy cross to carry and it really weighed on me.
It was a steep learning curve for me but the experience made me discover hidden strengths and I am finally at a place where I can breathe and I am getting my self together.
The first on my ‘to-do’ list was to kick start my blog which I abandoned for almost two years. I really missed blogging because it was a platform I created where I could freely express myself and just do me.
It felt really good going out and having my pictures taken because ever since I had my baby Kadima, I have been struggling with my body image. I found it really hard to accept my post baby body even though everyone around me compliments me on how good I look but I really struggled to look at myself in the mirror. I feel so fortunate to have great friends and family who have been with me every step of the way cheering me on and always reminding me that I can get back on track.
Have a great week ahead. xx Mimi
