Celebrating life, happiness and my first blog post…
Hello and Welcome! I’m so excited to be writing my first blog! Even though I’ve just spent the past 45 minutes thinking what I can write in the blog then spending another 30 minutes googling ‘what to write in your first blog’ and then of course closing the computer and then opening it again so many times I thought ‘JUST DO YOU HUN’
A phrase I say to so many ( I’m even wearing the t-shirt with the exact same slogan) so it kind of makes sense.
So I’m going to introduce my new blog and myself.
Feel free to check the about me section if you haven’t already. But in the mean time I will let you know a little about me. I apologise now for being illiterate, although I’m actually not really sorry.
I’m Gemma, just a normal girl who grew up on a typical council estate and did rubbish at school, absolutely shocking actually. I lived for the weekend were I spent most of my time out.
Well I say weekend it was actually Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and some Sundays until I had my first child.
I was in a very bad place back then and it got worse before it got better.
I spent years of letting people talk to and treat me like crap. Years of being unhappy, but doing nothing about it.
Years spent on different types of medication to help me deal with my depression and anxiety.
Years of listening to others tell me what I should and shouldn’t do because my own values weren’t good enough. Basically I spent years of torturing and bullying myself! I was the most negative person in the whole wide world.
Seriously all doom and gloom.
Everything was always working against me and not for me.
I didn’t want to be here anymore.
Life was so unfair and bad stuff always happened to me. I was unfixable, the unluckiest person in the world.
you get the picture?
But in the words of Elsa the queen of ice I finally ‘LET IT GO’ and I’m not that person any more!
It didn’t happen overnight of course .But It shifted quite quickly and I changed and if I can believe me anyone can!
Fast-forward to now I’m the complete opposite.
Literally everything I’ve written above the absolute opposite.
I mean don’t get me wrong I’m not bouncing around with my spirit fingers in the air and on a constant high all the time but the majority of the time I’ve got my positive pants on and my shit together. I used to get annoyed when people told me I had changed. I was offended and upset, but I did and I finally realised that’s not a bad thing in fact, its the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I’ve experienced so much of LIFE I really have! And I’m only 31. Believe me it’s starting to show in my forehead! But that’s for another blog another time! But do you know what? I have no regrets, none what so ever!
I will never ever forget my roots, the laughs and cries I had along the way. I will always stay humble and want to help people its why I’m here and my purpose after all.
I will never ever forget the billion mistakes I’ve made, the experiences I’ve had and of course the people I’ve met along the way. Because each and everyone of them has made me who I am today! and I’m so glad to be me (something I would of never of said in a million years back then)
P.S. not in a braggy way like I think I’m amazing and better than anyone.
P.S.S. I don’t have everything in the world I want! But I’ve got everything I need rite now.
I’m also a mum of 3 and excited for it soon to be 4, a wife, Childminder, hairdresser, mentor, WW coach and Life and happiness coach!
Geez I’m tired reading that!
I don’t fulfil all them roles anymore but you can see a pattern of wanting to help people or make them feel good and you can also see that I like variety and to make changes.
But now I help ladies and mums feel happy, find their life purpose and create balance.
That doesn’t mean I cannot work with men, of course I can and will.
I’ve just never been one!
So I’m dedicating my blog to write about Life!
It makes sense really doesn’t it?
So tune in to my blog where I will share ‘The Good the Bad and the ugly’ I will share real life events, reviews, motivation, tips and of course some laughs and cries along the way because that’s what life is all about isn’t it? Imagine your journey being you in a car driving a long a road. It will never be a simple straight road.
There are so many bumps, sometimes cliffs along the way. You may experience a flat or even slashed tyres along the way.
But remember who is sat driving and in control of that car and the same goes for your life, you may just not know it yet but you are in control!
We have been given the gift of life, something that’s denied to so many so lets enjoy it!
If I could drink now I would cheers with a big bottle of Prosecco to LIFE
But this cup of tea will have to do for now
Enjoy Gemma xx
