Day 334

Today was full of love and connection. I spent the morning at the business chicks event and connected with many of my soul sisters. I had a pink tonic mocktail and enjoyed listening to all the speakers. It instilled in me a sense of ‘I can do this’ when it comes to running my own business. Lately I have been listening to my inner critic a bit too much. I also have certain ideas of what a ‘successful’ business looks like. I compare myself to others in my field and I get caught up in trying to be perfect. This blog has been a huge lesson in not being perfect. I don’t edit the posts. My grammar isn’t always perfect. I am just sharing my heart on a daily basis. I wish I could apply this to my business more. I am learning slowly that done is better than perfect. I can’t really believe that this is blog post three hundred and thirty four. I had another loss mum from the UK contact me recently and she mentioned she was inspired to write through her grief after reading my blog. Emails like this is what keeps me going. Some days I want to give up and just stop. Other days I am reminded by how special it can be to open up and share our stories. I made a promise to Hamish that I would blog every day until his 1st birthday. We are not far away now and I feel very blessed that I have been able to take time out to share my grief and journey to happiness again. I want to also thank today anyone that has read my blog and supported this journey. You guys also inspire me to keep going.

I love you buddy
