Why so Jaded, Monkey?

It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like the Jaded Monkey and yet, it’s a title I can’t get rid of. Won’t get rid of…

I went through a really tough period a couple of years ago. Divorce. Terrible rebound relationship. Losing my home and most of my friends. Living away for work without my support network. Anxiety. And finally… A new beginning.

There’s so many stories I could tell from that time in my life and one day, I just might. But not today. I’m not ready yet.

For now though, here I am. A little (no a lot) less jaded than I once was. But The Jaded Monkey is still me. The arrow must go backwards in order to move forwards right? I wouldn’t be the women I am today without acknowledging the things I went through to get here. So forgive me if sometimes I ramble, speak out of turn or have an opinion that differs to your own. I’m just telling my own truth as I see it in that moment.

I am merely one woman, trying to navigate this still relatively new world of motherhood, one blog post at a time.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
