This past year has been a huge one for me, namely because I became a mother for the first time. My family and I recently celebrated my bubba’s first birthday – a special milestone not just for him but for my husband and I as parents. Nothing ever prepares you for parenting – you can read a library full of books, listen to advice from well-meaning friends and family, but in the end you have to experience it to really understand what other parents go through. It is the most challenging time but also the most fun and rewarding experience I could ever have hoped for.
And now my journey is taking me back into the world of work. I am now the founder/editor of Australian Content Magazine along with my coaching business A Charmed Life. I get to have the best of both worlds – an outlet for my creative juices and inspiring women across Australia and get to be (almost) full-time mum. I feel like I have the balance just right. Hooray for me!
But of course there were times when my life wasn’t balanced. I worked too much (or sometimes not enough), I worried too much, I stressed about money and time (i.e. not having enough of it!). Sound familiar?
Well I am here to say that I believe all of us can have a balanced lifestyle and here at Australian Content Magazine, I, along with my amazing regular columnists, are here to continue to provide you with inspiring, thoughtful, educational and fun content for you. My wish is that you treat the magazine as your own personal friend – someone to pick you up when you are feeling down, someone to give you a little dose of inspiration when you need it … and sometimes to give a gentle shove in the right direction!
Every story, every column is designed to show you the possibilities that are in the world. Possibilities for you to be the very best version of you that you can be. And don’t we all deserve to be the best we can be? I believe so.
So thank you, dear readers, for joining the Australian Content Magazine journey and sticking with us. Talk to us, give us feedback and most importantly, get being inspired each and every day. Be content.
