Now, I am no nutritionist, but I firmly believe that you are what you eat and that good food leads to good health.
When C was about eighteen months old, I realised that I was still feeling as tried and sluggish as I had during those first few exhausting months.  As C was well and truly sleeping through the night by this point, I couldn’t blame my lack of energy on him.  After having some basic blood work done, I was not at all surprised when my GP told me I had low iron levels.

What I like about his profile of a good enough mother is that she is a real human being.

Last Friday evening I went to The Little Sage’s Circle.  I had never been to an energy event before.
I must say when I thought about Friday nights of yore, spent getting drunk in dive bars, I laughed at the contrast…here I am now, spending my weekend meditating, visualising and journaling!

Anyway, one of the exercises Helen lead us through was visualising what was holding us back.
