Creating balance in my life, even if sometimes life is upside down

Becoming a Mum is wonderful but it changes your life completely. Even the nine months of pregnancy can’t prepare you for this unique time in your life. I was so excited about the arrival of our baby and when we welcome him here in this world our world changed! There was just as two and now we have this beautiful little person that needs our attention.

In the first few months we were all over the place learning our new roles. Life felt like everything is upside down, and as I wrote in the previous post I first felt lost but then I have discovered the secret to create balance and harmony in life. And the secret is Happy Mum equals happy family. I try to do at least one think a day that makes me happy such as exercise. I love capoeira and yoga and do them as much as I can.

My questions to you are what makes you happy, truly happy? Do you do whatever makes you happy on a daily basis? Or do you put yourself last? I encourage you to leave a comment below because once people write their desires they are more likely to accomplish them.

Until next time 🙂


I am the best Mum I can possibly be BUT is this the only thing in this life for me?

I am the best Mum I can possibly be BUT is this the only thing in this life for me? Am I only a Mum? My baby boy is almost 8 months and I must say that I’ve struggled for months with this feeling that although I am super happy to have a healthy little boy in my life, at the same time I felt lost in my life as an individual. BUT I discovered the secret to balanced and harmony in life.

On this blog pages I want to share tips and suggestions on how I got to a place where I now feel very happy as a Mum 🙂 A little about me, I am a very active person, I love sport and personal development, that’s why for most of my adult life these were my passions which I devoted myself to after studies and work. Almost eight months ago my son was born, and suddenly my whole free time was gone. There was only baby’s time and although I really enjoy his company I struggle because I individually wasn’t doing much. When he was sleeping I did housework and then watch movies or brows social media. Simply because I was lacking something. I was lacking directions, goal and movement. One day after watching movie after movie I realised that I waste my time and that’s why I decided to change my passions into a new business. The secret that I discovered is simple – Happy Mum equals happy family. If you feel miserable your family probably feels miserable as well but if you feel joy, you find joy in your family. Period.
