I won’t lie – I spent quite a bit of time deciding on a name for my blog. I wanted a name that resonated with me. That told my story. That gave a glimpse of who I am and what I am about. (And from my first post, New Beginnings, clearly it also had to be perfect – to me, in any case!)
There were a few contenders but ultimately, over a glass of wine and testing it with hubby, it became apparent that WorkFoodHome was the one. Why?
Well, for me, that’s my life in a nutshell really. I work, I eat and if I’m not at work, I’m at home (mostly). Sounds terribly depressing, doesn’t it?! But is it really? I suppose it could be, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s the reality in which we live. (And it’s not just my reality, but a reality shared by most people.) How I choose to live that reality is up to me though…
So that is what WorkFoodHome is about. Creating my reality every day. It includes the people (and dogs!) I love and share my life with, it’s about the things I choose to occupy my mind with, the experiences I have, the places I visit. It’s about good food and wine, things that I enjoy doing, things that makes me happy. It’s about what matters to me, all while trying to live as positively as I can.
So that’s WorkFoodHome – And A Life In Between.
Looking back at my first post it is evident that I suffer from a bit of performance (perfection) anxiety! Before I took that first step I was so caught up in my own head – what would people think… what do I want people to think – that it kept me from making a start for quite some time (years, if I am honest). Now, about a month into this journey, I am so happy that I finally did it!
The most rewarding thing so far has been rediscovering my creative side – my love for writing and photography. (Although hubby would say that my smile when I receive a “like” on a post or a new follower can also be likened to that of a child on Christmas morning!)
I’m not sure when I will feel that I am ‘successful’/not failing at blogging. For now, I am just reveling in the experience and I am utterly enjoying it. And I hope that somewhere in my stories someone will find encouragement to make stories of their own, to try something new, maybe take time to reflect or to just take that next step!
