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 Divorcedmoms.com. 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!
