There is without a doubt that this year has been desperately hard. I am only now just coming to terms with being able to say that my husband cheated on me and walked out and I’m now divorced. It’s not something you ever think you’ll have to say, and every time I do say it my breath catches and my body goes cold. So while I was in Europe over the past few weeks, I naturally had a lot of time to think, process what has happened in the last 5 months and with the help of my close friends and family begin my Fresh Start.
Of course, I’m really looking forward to sharing my holiday to Munich and Paris, if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my photos while there. It was without a doubt the most incredible holiday I have ever been on. I have traveled a lot, but nothing matched this trip, it was scary, exciting, completing liberating and the best part was that I found my confidence again. Something that was so cruelly taken from me on every level.
Since coming home, one of my goals is to be able to help others, in any way possible. Be it in supporting and helping business through, offer any advice I can give to dealing with grief and surviving the devastation that comes with a marriage and life falling apart, and of course how to re-build your life in an hopefully elegant and positive light and one you will forever be proud of. For those who have so generously followed Made From Scratch over the years will know that I don’t share very personal insights into my life and how I deal with certain things. I want to change that. I was, and still am, so overwhelmed by the hundreds of emails that I have received over the past few months, and every one of them was full of incredible kindness, love and support and also thanks as my story was able to help others. Something I never expected and was so touched by. So I would like to return the favour. I have so much to share with you over the coming weeks and months, but one that I’m very much looking forward to launching, is my Fresh Start series. A series that hopefully will help inspire you, and help me with my Fresh Start and get Made From Scratch back up and running at full steam. Until then, I hope you all have a truly wonderful day planned and for the first time in a very long time, I am so excited to see what the future holds for me. x
