Readers, dear readers! Hello and welcome to my new digs. Finally!
Oh, but I've had a time of it importing all my posts from the WordPress account over to this one. It's actually a pretty cool system. Almost everything comes over – except for formatting. Major pain in the arse. So I have been going through each post, editing them one by one. A shitty task by anyone's standards. And weirdly, the last dozen or so posts are missing comments. Not sure what happened there either.
But never mind. We are here!
Not much has changed. There's not really anything amazingly different about this new site but in being here, my options open up in terms of The Little Mumma being sponsored by businesses whose target demographic is also mine. Mummas!
What won't change is the content. I will continue to write as honestly as ever and be striving always to make you laugh like some attention-seeking class clown. And I will share the ups and downs of this crazy-making journey we call motherhood.
Keep leaving me comments. I love reading them – to hear your take on something and to share little bits of your journey, too.
On that note, if you have a second, leave a little message here tonight to let me know that you found me okay and also, what you think of the new page. Love it? Want me to change something? Let me know.
Meanwhile, I am sitting here drinking a lovely glass of Sauv Blanc (it's not going to drink itself, guys) and thinking about gratitude.
I believe that living your life in a state of gratitude opens up opportunities and allows the universe to bring you good things. Yes, I'm one of those people.
But seriously, stay with me on this. If this blog reveals anything about me, it's that I am not all sweetness and light, perpetually sunny and chipper. Nope. Not me. But I always look to the future with optimism. I am so aware of what I have been given and the possibilities that having been bestowed such gifts creates in my life.
Firsthand, I have seen how a person can take a series of very, very bad situations and turn them into a good and worthwhile life. A genuinely happy life. And a life that will mean something to many people long after that life ceases to be.
I have come to understand that attitude is everything. You can't always get what you want. That much is true. But you will get what you need if you are open to it and willing to learn the lessons.
I have no-one to blame for the bad things in my life except myself. And an incredibly long list of people to thank for all the good.
My two beautiful sons are actually icing. Gravy. The perfect addition to an already blessed life.
Abundance is in effect in all areas of my life.
Enough with the positive affirmations?
But if you haven't tried it, would you consider it? You don't need to run out and buy The Secret or watch Oprah on endless rotation.
Just open yourself up to the good in your life and watch it flow in without measure.
Will bad or unfortunate things still happen? You know the answer to that. But that doesn't negate the blessings. Don't let it negate the blessings.
The Little Mumma loves you. Really.
