Life

Welcome to my new creative lifestyle blog!

Thank you so much for ‘taking time out’ to read my new blog. My name is Kate, I am 44yrs old (eek!) and I am married with 2 children and 2 stepchildren. I live in our converted bungalow in Kent, where I usually have some project or another on the go. I’m finding this time of my life incredibly exciting and would love it if you came along on the journey with me.

I am finally starting to live as the person that I really am, not the person I had become through lifes experiences and disappointments. It has been a journey, and quite a long one at that, to find out who I really am. It may seem odd, but it’s easy to say I am the daughter of, the wife of or the mother of, (and equally the son of, the husband of or the father of, don’t want to leave you men out!) but none of those things make you the actual person that you are, who you were created to be and what your purpose in life is. That is, outside of the amazingly important roles we play in the lives of the people that we love and who love us. We all have a purpose and a destiny and we need to know who we are to start living out that destiny. When I was younger and even up to a few years ago, if people said “you’re very creative” I would panic and say”no not at all!” I think inside I was scared to say I was in case people then expected something of me that I couldn’t live up to or that I would disappoint, in other words, fear of failure. I have, through lots of encouragement from friends and family realised that I am creative and I don’t have to do or prove anything. I am free to be, as are all of you. I want to encourage you all to do things that you either think you can’t, or just haven’t got round to doing. I will be sharing about all aspects of my life, including my home, family , friends, my faith in God and of course, not forgetting the fantastic Saffie dog!

    Kate this is fab and very brave of you stepping out! Love what you’ve blogged …and yes I agree it’s because when we know who we really are we can do what we were created to do..I was just talking to God and He showed me that the apple tree doesn’t have to strive and strain to produce its fruit, the Apple, it just does because that’s what it was created to do! Looking forward to sharing more with you and others.. Love you… Jeanne x

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog post or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

    • Reply Kate October 12, 2016 at 11:49 am

      Send me the details of your blog so that I can have a look and I will take a look and get back to you.

      Thanks

  • Reply WendyHMozo October 11, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be
    exactly I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content in your case?

    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on most of the subjects
    you write in relation to here. Again, awesome weblog!
