For the purposes of this blog, you can call me Layla.
I am a mum of two little boys under seven who has recently made the wrenching decision to leave her husband after three years of emotional and cyclical abuse.
As I begin on this journey into single mum-dom I want to be able to share the ups and downs, put things into perspective and journal the descent into the madness of divorce.
On the plus side, I have a great support network and even three weeks down the line I feel such a sense of relief.
It is my aim to be as ‘zen’ about life as possible. I believe in mindfulness and the power of positive thought but sometimes you just need a place to vent.
