I’m sorry I haven’t written in a while but I’ve had a heap of shit going on!
I had a bloody brilliant time away in NZ with family and a lot time away to think about what I want from my life and from the Goodnight Nurse.
As a lot of you may know, The Goodnight Nurse is a very personal thing for me. In life outside of work, I pride myself in being able to let my hair down and be the real me. The no airs or graces. What you see is what you get. The odd profanity (OK, maybe a few more than that!) and surrounding myself with people that I love and that love me. But in my work, I have helped tens of thousands of people with their sleepless little cherubs and in doing that, I’ve exhausted myself (again).
My health has gone to shit, largely because of back pain that gets so bad I struggle to get out of bed. But more than that, I’m emotionally fucked! I’m tired of trying to be the professional that I thought people wanted me to be. I’m tired of holding back and being careful not to swear. But as I get older and crustier at a now ripe old age of 39, I have decided to have my midlife crisis and give absolutely not one fuck about all that shit anymore!
Now, I’m not about to go all hard core. I will still be the professional that you all need me to be and that I want to be and will still be here to help you with your sleeping situations. I will be honest, kind, caring, considerate and helpful. Everything that I was up until now. The only change will be that you will be talking to the real me from now on. The uncut version.
I have made so many failed attempts on writing my book it’s ridiculous. I never understood the reason why I didn’t like each draft but now I do! I sounded like a complete dickwad! All sterile and constipated. Faceless and emotionless. Clinical and stale. They weren’t me. I’m the type of girl that laughs really hard at “dad jokes”, I am the biggest geek on the planet that watches big bang theory and documentaries more than movies. But, I did enjoy the last Star Wars movie!!!! I’m a shit housekeeper, average cook and enough of a mum that hopefully my kids won’t be too fucked up. My wifely duties are often lacking but I am surrounded by people that love me for who I am and its time that I allow myself to be me 100%.
I have recently employed the brilliance of a business mentor Carla AKA “Ballbreaker” and Videographer Sarahjane AKA “Blooper” to help me in my quest in achieving fucking awesomeness in my job.
If you have been to one of my workshops, you will know how much I enjoy them. I’m so pumped at the end of them that I could get someone to run a marathon for me! (I’m not bloody doing it!) You will already have seen the real me. For those families that have seen me in person recently, you will also have seen the real me.
The real authentic parenting book is coming. A You Tube Channel is coming and the most fun and interactive and real workshops are going to be taken Australia wide this year!!! (May be best if you don’t bring your toddlers. They may go home with a few more words in their vocab that grandma may not appreciate!)
I will have a specially trained and awesome Goodnight Nurse’s in every state and Territory in Australia and my overseas followers will not be forgotten with services created especially for you!
So hang on to your Monday undies Supermamma’s because shit’s about to get real! You’re about to be seeing and hearing a lot more from the real authentic me.
