I’ve recently been doing a lot of soul searching and really trying to find my calling. I’m not sure I like how pretentious that sounds to be honest but I really can’t think of another way to describe this feeling I’ve had. Since taking part as an official blogger for Female Entrepreneur Week last month I’ve really got into those fine lines and details about who I am, what I want and the life I want. I was not meant to be average. As a result of this I’ve started making some changes because I want to have the Ultimate Work Life & Travel balance. A lot of people would stop at work life balance but that’s not what I want. I am an explorer and I want to see more of this beautiful world. I want to be able to work from cruise ships around the world, I want to continue working from home and I want to provide for my family. To be really honest, I think a lot of women, particularly mums strive for this balance. They want a happy home life, a good work life and that allows them to do and see more.
One of the changes I’ve made quite notciably I think is a change in my Instagram feed. I’ve never really got Instagram to be honest. I’ve never really found my style or niche but now I feel like I’m getting there. I’m trying to use the same or similar filters. I’m working on taking better photos and I’m trying to show my lifestyle photographs. I love things that make me feel better about myself and those things include tasty food, working out, beauty products and travelling to beautiful places. I also work from home and I think it’s important to show my readers, my clients and my followers that is who I am. I like nice things and I work really hard to have them in my life. I want to help others get the ultimate work life and travel balance and so that is now my theme. My niche if you will. I am helping other mums acheive the ultimate work, life and travel balance.
I’m learning more and more about people, the way we think and act thanks to my NLP and Life Coaching Practictinor course. I’m doing this course because I love learning and because I really want to get into those finer details on how to help people. I want my readers to have confidence that I know what I’m talking about and that I know exactly how I can help others. I want want to be a qualified, accreddited expert in more than motor and home insurance. I want more for my life and for my family so that is now what I am dedicating my blogging life too. Making other people’s lifes better through showing them how to acheive the ultimate work, life and travel balance. I am helping other women be the absolute best version of themselves.
I want to do this because five years ago I was in a really bad place. I was freshly out of a toxic relationship, so overweight and a single mum. My self esteem was at the lowest of lows and I was truly at rock bottom. I was miserable and I had no idea how to rebuild my life. I had to do most of the work myself, finding somewhere to live, getting over fears of silly things, moving back to Hampshire feeling like a complete failure. Since then I’ve made so many mistakes whilst trying to make a better life for myself but I’ve also done a lot of learning. I’ve had the chance to experience some truly wonderful things and people too. I’ve got a loving partner, a nice home and I get to take my family on holidays. I am acheiving the work, life and travel balance and I want it to continue more than ever. I’ve been through all that and I know how lonely it is. I know how miserable it can get, I know what it’s like to suffer with anxiety, depression and the fear of failure.
I haven’t failed. You haven’t failed.
As long as we keep walking through this journey that is life, learning as much as we can, setting the right goals and really being our true authentic self, then we can’t really fail can we?
What would the ultimate work, life and travel balance look like to you?
