This is a classic ‘why I decided to blog post’ blog post, but I just thought I would share with you the meaning behind it all!
Actually I was sitting at the kitchen table with my husband one day and we were talking about our bucket lists! (I totally recommend you do this!) And he asked me if I could do anything as a career, what would I want to do. I hadn’t really thought about it, I’d always been a teacher and now I was a mum and I just accepted that was who I was, but as soon as he asked me this question without thinking “I wanna write a book” popped out! I didn’t even realize I had been thinking it but, I knew deep down God had been placing seeds in my heart to encourage me to write, seeds that I had been choosing to ignore!
So by husbands recommendations he suggested I start a blog first.
At first I wasn’t sure, since I was never any good at keeping a diary or sticking with things in general (so we will see how this goes). But after putting it off for a long time and saying “sometime I’m gonna start a blog” or “when I’m less busy with the kids” 2018 came along and I realized I am never gonna be less busy, I just need to start! So I did.
But that is just the start, the main reason I wanted to start blogging is because I think it’s fantastic. Just the idea and notion that someone can get revelation and insight into something and not keep it for themselves but share it with others in the hope to inspire and uplift people!
Just as I have learned and been inspired by many around me, I hope through this blog I can lend a bit of inspiration to families and mums and wives, not only in Japan but all around the world who long for a bit of encouragement, inspiration or just practical tips and advice!
I have just entered into a season of double mummy hood with my 2 yr old and my 5 month old, as God unveils a whole body of adventures and lessons through being a mum and wife in Japan and I wanted to share these thoughts and lessons with you too!
So this is it, I finally did something on my bucket list! So how about you? what is it that you have been meaning to do and have just kept putting off? Is there anything God is calling you to do?
