Welcome to my introduction page. I am 49 nearly at the half a century point; shh don’t tell anyone that is a secret! Mother to 3 children and Grandmother to 1 grandson; owner of one crazy dog with Tourettes and wondering how on earth I ended up writing a lifestyle blog and even more I’m still smiling – how about that then? I am sure I am not the only one thinking this right now – what that I am still smiling? yep, that. So why don’t you make yourself a cuppa, sit back, relax and read my introduction? Then you can decide if I am sane enough to follow or maybe I’m insane and right up your street. Either way follow away.
Changing the subject, last year a friend passed away and without trying to sound morbid it made me think about my own mortality, the journey getting here so far, what mark have I made on the world; if any, and have I accomplished any of my dreams? etc you know where I am coming from right?
In my first post, I write about how I have spent most of my life worrying and stressing about what others think of me. Why? How ridiculous is that in the scheme of things? A waste of time, energy, and effort for no gain whatsoever.
When you constantly give give give you end up exhausted mentally and physically. I do not want to spend the next 50 years as I have the past 49. Time for a rebirth; a new beginning. Everyone I would like to introduce you to the new and improved Tracey Ward da-da-dah… Well, that’s the plan anyway.
I have a huge list of things that I would like to try, lists of things that I don’t do often enough… lists of lists lol so this is going to be a journey of self-discovery; completely and utterly and I am going to share it with you and leave this for my children and grandchildren.
So my lovelies I welcome you all on my journey of self-discovery and hopefully, you will enjoy it as much as me and I am also looking forward to reading this page again in six months time and see how different I might be feeling and what things I have done differently or accomplished. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan.
UPDATE: It is now a year on and I have re-read this introduction and it seems like a lifetime ago but hand on heart I have moved forward so much and am still on the right path and enjoying life and enjoying the blog a lot more than I thought I would. Last month I had over 15,000 views which is incredible and people are now leaving comments and following and for that, I am so extremely grateful. My latest book, It’s Not Rocket Science is currently in the Amazons Top 100 at no 32 and that makes me so very happy. It makes all the hard work physically and emotionally worthwhile. And the fact that it is helping people makes me very happy.
My love to you all.
