The Beginning


Well, this is it. Time to start, time to do, time to get off my bum and get on.

It’s been years since I’ve actively decided to change what I do, to make a difference, to do something better. Oh, I’ve had times when I’ve thought it’s a good idea to do something different, but it’s always come to nothing. Now, this time, I’m feeling more determined. I’ve finally come to a point where I’m willing to admit that I’m unhappy with what I’ve done, and that it needs to change.

So where am I? If I’m going to change, I need to recognise where I am now, and what I want to make different. So, here’s me:

I’m married, to a wonderful man called Matt, and I have two lovely children. A boy who is 2, and a girl who’s 7 months. I’m self-employed, working in website design and development. This is in a partnership with my Dad, we work together on the business. I’m also quite overweight, and I suffer from depression (diagnosed by a doctor, and I have anti-depressants). I feel like I don’t do anything in my life for me, and I have real trouble starting anything – I suffer from sever apathy due to my depression.

As you can see, I’ve got some good things in my life, and some things I don’t like and want to change. To be honest, the list of things I want to change or improve is quite long. However, I’m going to start small and do just a little at a time. As I’m sure you’ve guessed from the tagline of this site, one of the things I want to change is to do with my religion. I’ve been interested and a reader on paganism since I was a teenager, but I’ve done no real practice.

From here on out, my journey begins. I’ll update you at least once a week. I’ll let you know what I’m doing and planning on doing next. I’ll share what works, and what doesn’t. Book reviews will be forthcoming. While this will have a pagan focus, it is also going to cover other topics I find interesting, such as gaming and politics.I’ll also talk about family updates, household, diet, fitness and work.

My plan for the next week: start small. Each morning, after breakfast, write a list of jobs that I need to do that day. Tick them off when I’ve done them. I’ll also think about a time I can block off each day so I can meditate – or just have some quiet space for “me time”.
