Gratitude challenge (25)     
This may come as a surprise to some of you, but I wasn't always a passionate birth worker and activist. Once upon a time, in a land far far away I held down a perfectly normal government admin job. I even really liked my work.

Then I went on a journey...one that involved pregnancy, birth, birth trauma, breastfeeding trauma, motherhood...And I started to rethink a few things.

I discovered a passion for birth activism that filled all my spare time. I learned, researched, encouraged, fought.

Then I went on another journey. Another pregnancy, another birth, another birth trauma and mothering of 2. The rethinking and evolving kept happening and I discovered that, while I may have really liked or even loved my previous work, I now had a mission.

Supporting women to have positive pregnancies, births and mothering experiences. I no longer just like going to work, I live for my work. It's what makes me happy and keeps me feeling alive. The look on a woman's face as she finds her power and discovers herself as mother is really something else.

I'm forever grateful that I found my mission. x

What is the gratitude challenge?
I set myself this challenge as a way of maintaining some mindfulness and gratitude, but also to help me take time each and every day to focus on my writing.

I would welcome anyone else who wants to join the challenge. The rules are simple: Start at a and work your way through to z. You must do one each day, include a photo and they must be at least 2 paragraphs - after all the idea is to work on your writing not just your gratefulness.
