Ashamedly, I started ‘the low down’ (essentially a mash-up of favourites and a monthly diary) back in April with good intentions of making it a fairly regular part of Musings & More. Which considering it’s now six months later and this is only my second ‘entry’, I’m sure you can tell that has gone so well. Either way, here’s some of my favourites of October!

I was recently having a conversation with a friend about holidays and the countries we wanted to visit in our lifetimes. The list was pretty endless but still potentially realistic. ‘But I also want a bigger house,’ I interjected. And with that, I began to think of everything else I also wanted. The high-flying career. The nice house. Marriage and children. A social life. As society would deem it, I want to have it all.

Every so often when chatting with someone – and I’ve no doubt we all do it – I’ll refer to something as a ‘guilty pleasure.’ It’s a term thrown around frequently, describing anything we enjoy but feel bad about liking for whatever reason. And it’s not until very recently that I began to wonder why.

I’m currently going through a phase at the moment. I’m not sure who I am right now but I know what I’m trying to be. I’m trying to be a career woman. A great girlfriend. A good daughter. A caring friend. A blogger. A dog-mum. Sister. Aunt. Quite frankly, the list is endless. I don’t know exactly how I got to this point, or even why. But I do know this: I’m absolutely bloody knackered.

Obviously, I am of all of these things without necessarily making the choice to do so. But I don’t want to just be all of these things. I’m trying to consciously be good at them. And perhaps therein lies the problem.
