Life in a Transitional Period

In the past couple of months life has changed immensely for me. I genuinely feel I’m going through a transitional period in my life and as a result learning more about what is important to me and my personal happiness. 

Life is full, I have such a busy schedule, so  time is now precious. If you have lots of free time it’s so easy to take that for granted. I know I did.  

When I do have free time I want to spend it with friends and family. My kids are growing up fast, I feel like I am running out of time to make those happy childhood memories with them. 

Two of my children are now teenagers and quite  naturally don’t want to spend all of their free time with their parents. That is a conflict of interest so I am working on achieving a happy balance. 

Im learning that material things are less important. I have a lot of clutter In my home and that is making me feel bogged down. I end up spending my free time running around and tidying up after people rather than spending quality time with them. This is not something I want in my life.

I want to simplify and down size my life by getting rid of some of this clutter. I have plans to do this over the coming months. It will be hard for me to part with things, I’m a natural hoarder. That will be why I have about 8 foundations then? Why??? I have one face!

As a bit of a self confessed shopaholic it is going to be hard to break my hoarding habit. I just need to remind myself of that end goal. Less tidying and more time for enjoying my free time. 

It not just me either. Nope! The boys bed room is full of Lego and Nerf Guns that im constantly standing on or falling over. Oh and I made an interesting discovery in my youngest ‘s  wardrobe the other day. He has tops in it that are aged 5-6. He’s 9! 

I have a few plans in the pipeline that will help me achieve a more streamlined and clutter free. I will share those on the blog as they happen so watch this space.
