Hello there, my name is Shannon, and I am so happy that you have come across my blog. For a while now I have been looking for a way to share my thoughts, and dreams, and inspirations – so finally I have decided to create the very website that your eyes are dancing across right now!
I’m a pretty down to earth kind of girl. It doesn’t take a lot to make me crack a smile or burst into laughter – however, this hasn’t always been the case. You see, I’ve been unwell. I’ve been stuck in a cycle of self hatred, anxiety, and depression for many years. I don’t want to focus too much on the years of eating disorder and tears. But lets just say that it was dark, and it was scary.
I am currently in my final year of a bachelor of midwifery; a job that can be so beautiful yet so scary at the same time, but somehow that is what makes me love it the way that I do. Oh and I do love it! Watching new life come into the world is like nothing you can imagine, until you experience it for yourself.
Coffee is my next biggest passion. I love everything about being a barista – the customers, the artistic freedom, the morning rush, the free coffee! It’s seriously the greatest. (Shoutout to The Coffee Barun, a.k.a the best workplace in the whole world!)
So who am I? I am a midwife (nearly), a barista, a friend, a daughter, a lover. I am a coffee snob, a passionate tea drinker, a make up enthusiast, and pink peony fanatic. I am a woman, full of strength and beauty. I am me.
I am learning to find balance in my life. Learning to be peaceful. Learning to love myself again… And I do so hope that you will join me 🙂
