Every mother is a multi-tasker. It is the nature of the beast. You have to be parent, nurse, taxi driver, teacher, doctor, friend, negotiator, peace keeper, policewoman, chef, organizer…… the list goes on. so why have I decided to give myself that user name? I’m no better than any other mother and often get it wrong.
The answer is probably because I need to keep my mind busy. I need to have something going on in my head to stay as sane as I possibly can because if I stop doing I start thinking and that is never a good idea for me.
When I find something I need to do I am passionate about it. I am passionate about my children. I am passionate about raising awareness of brain tumours. I am passionate about helping my friends and doing the right thing by them – or at least trying to.
And because of this need to stay busy I “cobweb”. I stretch myself out so thin sometimes that the slightest fly in the ointment – or on my web – means I unravel. I come to a halt as I try and tie the strings back together. I get scared and hide from everything until it gets to be a problem but then, somehow, I find my way back. Pick myself up, dust the dew off the web strands and rebuild
I am a survivor. I survive. That’s what I do. I survive and I multi-task.Hopefully my blog will start to explain to anyone interested why I react in the ways that I do. Why, behind this confident exterior is a frightened child trying to get out.
Thank you for reading now let’s start the journey.
