Recently a 2012 Facebook memory popped up a post about how I was in town admiring a container shop and how one day I was going to have a retail store of my own, living the dream! Fast forward 6 years and there was the sign going up in High St, my dream had become a reality, fast forward another 14 months and there my dream … Continue reading The Dream vs Reality
There have been more times than I care to admit when I have felt like giving up lately. When I have felt like I have lost my identity in my work, my relationship, my role as a parent and simply just felt lost in life in general, and I know that I am not alone.
