Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom – Aristotle
Hi …and welcome to my WordPress blog, thanks so much for visiting, hopefully you’ll stay a little while – and if you like it, why not subscribe 🙂 I promise I won’t bombard you!
I guess my name is a good place to start, I’m Carly – and I have a confession – I am totally new to this blogging business at the time of writing this; truth be told I’ve had a nightmare even trying to set this bloody thing up! 3 hours down and I’ve just started writing this paragraph, so bear with me if things disappear, re-appear, get jumbled or fall off your screen. Its not you, its me…
I’m 30 something (a woman never tells right!?) no children, 2 fur babies and currently back at mums house in Essex for the foreseeable, for reasons i’ll no doubt touch on at some point….
I love sunsets, music, dancing, spending time with loved ones, long walks, weekend breaks, starry skies and living in the now! ( oh and reading – highly recommend “power of now” Eckhart Tolle ) I can’t sit still for 5 minutes, always got something to do & somewhere to go… I can be stubborn but am well intentioned. I’m a glass half full kinda girl and will always believe in the good of everyone – until proven otherwise. I work real hard, play harder and am often working on “me”….because nobody is perfect and life is full of lessons for us all to grow from ( Lord knows I’ve had my fair share I feel like I should be Buddha level enlightened by now) After all- if you’re reading this- no matter what you’ve been through, it hasn’t killed you and i’m sure has somehow made you stronger too! We have to take the positive from every situation and keep on keeping on!
My Mum (AKA the Mothership) was confirmed to have the faulty BRCA1 gene many years ago, as have several other members of my family on the maternal side. I was tested and confirmed to also carry the same faulty gene in September 2016 and it turned my whole world on its head. I hope that by writing this blog, it’ll not only help me process things, but also anyone else going through this or anything even remotely similar; heck, there’s been enough going on in the last 6 months that I’m sure you’ll identify with something – Even if its not a dodgy set of genes!
Check out my “F*ck it” page as well before getting into my blog posts, its in the menu above (at least, it should be!) , there’s just a little more info there too.
Thanks for joining me on my journey… I’d love to meet like minded people and hear your stories and also to know if i’ve managed to reach out to even one of you and helped you feel less alone and more empowered to face your demons too!
One last thing…. Please… don’t read and run… hit “like” at the bottom of the pages you’ve read or send me a quick message if you’ve got anything you want to suggest or request … it would be great to get some feedback and know if its worth keeping on at this blogging stuff! ( FYI , I can see ya’ll reading, but don’t know if you’ve laughed, cried, fallen asleep at your laptop or just don’t give a damn… I hope its the former!) You can also enter your email to follow my blog, in the right hand column and you’ll get a notification when a new blog is added – don’t worry I don’t share your details anywhere!
Thanks Readers, I really appreciate your visit!
