And…so it begins

I can’t believe I’m writing my first post!

I guess I should start by telling you a little bit about myself.

So here goes…

My name is Becky, I’m in the lower end of my thirties (just!) and I’ve decided to start writing a blog. The few friends I have let into my blogging secret have asked what I’m going to blog about. Its an interesting question and I’m as keen as they are to see how this pans out. The truth is, I don’t really have a plan. I’m actually rubbish at planning most things in life. But, what I do have is a huge desire to write and a lot to get off my mind.

I’m a country girl at heart having grown up in rural Northamptonshire. However, three years ago work brought me to London, the place I now call home.

I grew up surrounded by a small but beautiful circle of friends, and the most amazing family I could ask for.

But life, like most people’s, has been full of ups and downs.

Six years ago, I lost my best friend. After 28 years, she decided she’d had enough of this life and didn’t want to live here anymore. And I guess that’s one of the reasons I am here, writing this blog. Not just as a tribute to her, but much needed therapy for me, and to maybe even help others too. There are stories of wellbeing and mental health everywhere right now, but it is crucial that we find our best ways to deal with these issues. What works for one person doesn’t work for all. I hope that by writing this blog, I can start to declutter my mind, and if it helps other people too, then I very much look forward to sharing my musings with you.
