The Next Chapter

When That Noise Is Mine started a little over 12 months ago, I was a completely different person going through a period of change.  Many of you have been along for the entire journey, some joined along the way and some of you are new.

Throughout the journey I have faced many challenges as I settled into this new role as single mother and single woman.  Gradually I rebuilt my life, I’ve stumbled at times but I have now emerged from that period of life ready to take on the world as a new woman.  Much like a butterfly – hence the butterfly in my new logo.

I’ve been this new woman for a little while now and many of my newer posts reflected this but I faced a dilemma with my blog.  My niche was a divorce/single parenting blog but writing about that meant I had to hold onto those feelings from the end of my marriage to continue to write relevant posts.

I don’t want to hold onto it anymore.

In my life, the past 2 or 3 years have been a time of both immense pain and extraordinary growth. The divorce is now something that happened to me rather than something that consumes my life. I am more than a divorce – I am a Mum, a student, a business owner, a blogger, a writer, a friend, a daughter, a sister and a strong woman.

I am not a divorce.

So I decided to make a change.  I’m not sure what niche my blog fits into now.  Life, maybe???? But I  look forward to bringing you stories about the hilarity and chaos of my life with 4 kids, my goals to become a successful business woman and an exciting new journey to find love again.

I am also a big believer in building people up.  In showing them their worth, in teach others self respect. In showing others that you can loose everything and rebuild to make “everything” all over again and you can do it on your own.  In fact, you’re better off doing it on your own before finding someone else to share life with.

I am also putting together a fantastic team of guest bloggers who will participate in debates and write feature posts.

Divorce is said to be one of the hardest things you’ll ever go through and I completely agree, for me it was like a death. But as with everything in life, you pick up and move on. From time to time I will still write about the end of my marriage mostly through  I have some exciting plans for my posts about divorce, in hope that it will help others who are facing the break down of a relationship. Those posts can now be accessed by going to Chapter 1 up on the main menu and stay tuned for an exciting announcement in the next few weeks.

But, for now …… Here we go friends, welcome to That Noise Is Mine – The Next Chapter, enjoy the ride!

  • You are strong and beautiful, I’m glad you found the strength to find you. We are not out circumstances we are better than that. Well done you ?

  • I am so happy I found this! I wrote a blog about depression and anxiety. It was my husband’s idea. I struggled with it, because I wasn’t really sure how to find my stride. Then my husband just vanished. Abandoned my daughter and I and left us in chaos. I started to write about it on my blog, but once the divorce papers were filed, I thought it would be better to wait until the case was settled before I wrote again. We finally settled it in December, and I have been wanting to get back into blogging, but I was feeling this exact same way. I don’t want to drown in my divorce. I don’t want to dwell on it. It’s so great to read that I’m not the only one who feels this way. And it gives me hope that I’ll find my niche outside of depression, divorce and anxiety. Thanks for the great read!

  • I don’t think anyone ” chooses” divorce.. Even though I hated my marriage of 35 years I still didn’t want to be that statistic… Once it happened though I was free to be me..warts and all and I love my life. You are in a different stage to me and that does change the perspective.. But you either embrace your new life or you dwell on the old.I think it’s a great idea to move on and you will still help others as they move on also…
    One person does make a difference and not everyone can freely navigate the pluses and pitfalls of change. I’m sure you will be a great help to those who need it and a comforting reminder to those who follòw you that change can be and is a good thing ! Well done!
