Now I know that was not the best way to deal with it, though it was how I felt at the time.
I still hold true to EVERYTHING I have ever written on here, I still back it all up and I still intend to live by it as much as is humanly possible.
My intention, though, has changed. Instead of panicking about it all and inciting panic in my readers, I want to incite inspiration, hopefulness and an excited approach to creating positive change. I want to deliver positive messages, ideas and suggestions as opposed to fear-based education which I feel I have been participating too much in, of late.
I also want this to become a more REAL space where I can admit failings as a person, Mum and eco-warrior because I am SO human and I donât get it right all the time.
Itâs been quite the cleansing process over the past 3 years.
I often felt fearful of a lot of things during this Saturn-return journey, including the toxicity of living life on this earth; all the chemicals, all the poor quality foods, the air and water pollutionâ¦ It scared me to know so much and learn so much about it all. The more I dug down into it, the worse it all became and the more scared I was for my daughter.
The past month or two though I have had a real change of heart about all of that. Whilst I am still less than impressed by the state of our planet and the forced toxic lives we have to live, I feel more grounded about it all now. I feel more drawn to creating positivity around that, where I can, as opposed to freaking out and being so fearful all the time.
I also fully acknowledge that I have been VERY outspoken on a number of important issues and probably offended a vast number of people having done so. Whilst I believe itâs important to express oneâs opinion, I have also learnt recently that there are more ways to skin a cat than I ever thought.
One can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
I must admit, nay, I feel I must apologise for having been a tad heavy handed at times in this blog, dealing more in the vinegar than the honey.
It has been THE most tumultuous period of my entire, short life. I hope to never have to repeat it (though being my FIRST Saturn-return I am sure it will swing around again in another 28 yearsâ¦) Anyway, as my Saturn-return is drawing to its close, I feel as though I have had a complete change of heart and head.
I am commencing what I feel will be a long inward journey as a wife and mother. That means pulling back in some areas and drawing forth in others. I look forward to sharing those parts of my journey with you too â lessons I learn as a wife, how I relate to my husband and daughter, how I get more in touch with my feminine side.
Actually, I am planning to interview my own grandmother, who has been successfully married for 60 years to her husband. She raised 5 children (including one with special needs) and created a successful family business all the while being an ultra-feminine and gentle wife. I greatly admire her for that and hope to write a book about her lessons for love and life, as a result of the interview because it is so much the type of woman, mother and wife I wish to emulate.
I hope you all like what lies ahead for The Eco Mum and I appreciate all of the support and encouragement you have provided for me. Itâs been a super fun journey and I look forward to embarking on the next part of it with you :-)
