So I’ve been on a bit of a journey this year (there’s that god-awful word again!).
I nearly gave up being a celebrant about 18 months ago. I came to a crossroad and took a hard look at life. I’d been mum and wife full time for close to 14 years and a celebrant for 11 of them.
Don’t get me wrong I was happy as a pig in poo but it was time to do something for me. I’ve got a big birthday coming up and decided I was going to get fit, healthy and strong. I was going to do some self care, something us mums can lose in the day to day routine.
So my New Years resolution was to do something about it. Stop whinging and get off my ass!
11 months on, with smart choices, awesome support and a whole load of determination, I’m pretty damn happy.
I’m chasing my kids around the footy field, having date nights with my main squeeze and generally feeling a million bucks.
And the big thing. I think I have become an even better celebrant. I’ve completed heaps of business and personal development courses (you never stop learning), thrown myself into networking and meeting like minded industry peeps - face to face!
Life is fabulous and I feel grateful every day for my family, my friends and the wonderful couples that invite me into their lives for a pretty special day.
Here’s to 2020 and all that it brings us!
