Time for… a new name


    If you follow me you’ll know that I’ve been doing a bit of (as my mother-in-law calls it lol…) soul searching recently. I don’t know if I would use those words myself – but certainly I’ve been going through a pretty huge season of self examination & change… It all started with Flutter…

    Much of the time as a mum I forget, don’t make the time, or don’t feel it’s a priority to think about myself and what I want in life. It kind of feels selfish to… it can spark a course of the “mothers guilt” – do you know what I mean?
    … Anyway starting Flutter has been great for me!! The process of “designing” Flutter has allowed me to truly examine & explore what I want for my future. Obviously I don’t mean that exclusively – of course my family are still the most important part in my decision making process and my reason for doing it all!! But what I mean is that for the first time in a long long time I’ve allowed myself to truly explore my passion, my creativity and as a result my goals outside of the family ones. Through the process I’ve discovered more of myself and what makes me tick. It has been a process of CONSTANT change… in fact you could say that change was the only constant throughout the process ha ha…

    When I started this blog last May I wasn’t quite sure it was my thing. I went into it without a lot of thought, & just came up with a name to get started. I didn’t even know if I would be able to stick at it – and to be honest it did take me a while to get going!!
    … 9 months later & I’m ready to admit to myself that I can do this & that I really benefit from the process of keeping an online “diary”. It keeps me accountable, it keeps me focused and it pushes my creativity to new levels. I always loved writing when I was at school and it has been great to reexplore that interest. My husband has at times questioned my need to publish everything so publicly – but he has slowly got my reasoning over time (mostly).

    So with the creation of my new Flutter logo (yes another new logo) I decided it was a good opportunity to give my blog a new name and a new look to keep it consistent. Here is my new logo…

    … and after 9 months of blogging – my new blog name “Diary of a Flutter.Kat” is born.
    Symbolic that it took 9 months for it all to come about? Hmmm… you can make up your own mind about that LOL…

    Let me know what you think… 🙂

    1. I LOVE your new logo and name…it is symbolic of the journey you have taken to get to this point.

      I know all too well that ‘mother’s guilt’ you refer to, but this year I have promised myself to place those thoughts aside for in allowing myself ‘time’, I am a better mother/wife/friend.

    2. I love the new name and logo!
      And you know what? It’s very healthy to think about ‘you’ in the midst of the mothering that you do… it does make you a better mum when you put that hat back on 🙂
