One of the biggest struggles I faced when I first became a single mum is the shear fact of having to do everything by myself. There is no one to blame if it doesn’t get done. But there is no one else to take the glory when it goes right. My mindset had to change from I can’t fix this to ok right how do I go about fixing this. Â I have a network of friends from all walks of life and I constantly pick their brains on the things I know they know. Â By making an obstacle of defeat into a challenge and then accepting and learning from the challenge, I know I become a stronger person.
