COMPARISON IS THE DEATH OF JOY: A Mum Life Success Story

Natasha Day from Ottawa, Canada, knows all too well the negative impact comparison can have on someone’s self esteem and confidence, but after a harrowing birth experience that left her weak and mentally exhausted, she made a decision to make her health her number one priority. The result had an amazing impact on not just Natasha, but her entire family and other women in her community. She found the ability to push past fear and doubt to move forward and find self acceptance, confidence and empowerment!

My Mum Life Story: PART 1- Childhood Childhood and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve probably been wondering ‘who is this lady?’ and ‘what’s her deal?’ Most of my posts have been about other people and other things with a few little anecdotal tidbits thrown in for personal relevance and an attempt to ‘relate’ to you, my audience.

Heartfilled Crafts: A Shop Review

As humans, we create out of our experience and our passion, reaching deep into ourselves to extract the beautiful expressions of our heart and soul. Our art or our craft is a visual representation of the journey we have been on, the things that have changed us, inspired us and motivated us.

Sara Impriano: A Mum Life Success Story

We are redefining the word ‘Success’ here at Mum Life Stories. You don’t have to be a rock star, a celebrity with your name up in lights and 100k+ followers on Instagram. You don’t have to have a million dollars in the bank or have the whole world know your name. “Success” to us is getting up every day and taking care of business. It’s kicking goals and pushing toward your dreams. It’s not giving up or letting circumstances or other people prevent you from embracing the future you long for in your ‘heart’.

TINY GREEN APPLES: A Micro Story

SOS! What do you do with a large—a very large—bagful of wild apples, hard and green and sized like golf balls? Google doesn’t have a page for this.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTION: Make New Years Resolution!

I’ve never really been one to make New Years Resolutions as I’m a big believer in refraining from making promises I’m not 100% sure I can keep, even if it’s only to myself. It’s probably not the most optimistic of outlooks but up until now, I believed it was working for me. After a pretty…

Party Supplies – Flash Fiction

Hurry, hurry. Must hurry up. In and out. Grab the plastic cups, paper napkins, no sidetracks, no impulse shopping, pray I don’t run into anyone I know…oh dear, there’s Amy from playgroup in the produce section. Turn around, quick. No time for chatting, must be back before the first kid arrives. Party supplies, party supplies…oh…

Looking After Number Mum

Ok, so I know the title doesn’t make a lot of sense but I’m pretty sure all my readers out there are clever enough to work out what my fractured saying is alluding to. To be honest I don’t really subscribe to the idea that we (as humans) let-alone self-sacrificing Mothers are ever number 1,…
