Hi I’m Donna

I’m delighted that you have come to check out my blog. I hope you find value here in my little space on the big wide web!

So you’re probably wondering who I am so here is a little bit about me.

I am a mother of one. I have an amazing boy who keeps me on my toes. I’m forever evolving to be a better mom or more on point to be the mother I want to be. I’m far from perfect but I do my best and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

I am in my mid 30’s

I am tiny – not even 5ft and I can still fit into kids shoes. Actually, sometimes they are too big but I am blessed to also fit into adult shoes just a size 4 or 5!! And my son who is 6 is almost as tall as me

I have been and have qualifications for a career as:

  • Childcare Worker
  • Beauty Therapist
  • Massage Therapist

and I’m currently studying to become a Transformational Life Coach

This is not my first blog it’s about my 4th, however, all the other’s are no longer in existence as I didn’t stick with them. Needing to find out my authentic self I have been on quite a journey these past few years

I love getting Crafty and Sewing

I love health but need to exercise more

I’m Fructose Intolerant

How the name came about

I procrastinated over finding the right name for longer then I am going to admit! But I knew that I would know when I found IT!

Along the way, I found some amazing and beautiful blogs that already have the name I was going to choose.

One of the things I have been passionate about since becoming a mother was the way life and parenting has become these days. I was a new mum living 3 hours away from family – all my other friends were working and my partner was working 12hour days, and I came to realise that there was no community anymore, with the way life is more and more families are needing to have two incomes to survive and that’s tough and it sucks.

Trying to come up with a blog name. Thinking about what I wanted this blog to focus on.

A community was something I wanted to create and also personal development. Some mums, certainly myself need to find their Childlike Wonder again. I had lost it and my ability to have fun with all the stresses of life dragging me down.

I was googling all sorts of different things to try and find that perfect name. While reading an article talking about childlike wonder a paragraph stood out to me which included the three words Joy Wonder and Happiness and I felt something! I was on the right track. Letting it sit for a few days I asked the opinion of a close friend. Once I decided YES this is IT.

It has begun meaning so much more to me, and I am loving the opportunity to share and grow and share some more.

I look forward to hearing your story
