When Life Throws You Lemons, Make A Lemon-Champagne Sparkler
So much can get thrown at us as women, we take it, accept it, but if I can offer you any advice from my years, fight for what you dream of and make it happen coz anything in this world is possible.
I was diagnosed with MS in my HSC year at 17 years of age.
I pursued my dream of becoming a registered nurse and midwife
I resigned after my midwifery new grad year. There had to be more to life other than working & sleeping
I travelled the world on my own.....that 18 months is a fairytale I'd love to share with you one day.
I met my prince once I returned, now happily married with 3 boys, 6, 4 and 2 years old.
If that's not a juggle enough, I launched my own small business www.cutesywootsy.com.au last Spring to help support my family and carry on my midwifery dream while still cherishing looking after our kids.
Whether it be the different MS symptoms that silently hassle me each day; being a mum to three young kids; surviving in Sydney on a single income for a family of 5; the guilt of being a stay at home mum when my heart adores looking after my kids, but other mums work and bring in an extra income; feeling like a zombie while trying to give extra time to my business, the list could go on.
I could happily look after my husband, babies and housework, but I don't fight my MS each day to only just be. I want the life I dream of. You need to live with the cards your dealt, but don't just settle if they're not quite what you're after. We get one life. We all have dreams, we all have challenges and we all have our own stories. No two stories are the same, but I hope from my different array of life's experiences we face that something resonates with you and you'd like me to discuss further. If I can do it, you can too.
It's tough, life's not easy, but my word the joys and love of life you can create if you dream big, work hard & be kind. I don't know how I get through each day, but I've a burning passion to live like everyone else, so I try real hard to just do it!
