The Working Mum's Self-Love Manifesto

You may have noticed my excitement recently over my upcoming eBook. I have dreamed of writing a book since I was a young girl, and although I still intend to write and hopefully publish a paperback some day, I am currently working on an eBook.

To give you some idea on what my eBook is about, here is a sneak peek.
I created this manifesto as a general guide for the basis of my eBook, which is all about self-love for the working mum. Without giving away too much of the context (which I think is now fairly obvious) I wanted to share this with you. If you click on the image you can see it enlarged. I will be providing a printable in the near future.
So, what do you, my reader, think of it? Does it mean anything to you? Do you find it easy to read, is it relatable?
Not only am I excited about creating my very own manifesto, I received some images for my eBook today from the fabulously talented Flossy from Flossy Photography
Elated is the best way to describe my mood right now. eBook launch is forthcoming!

  1. How seriousy exciting for you.
    I love your manifesto.
    I think it's possible to achieve the balance (most of the time) if we're mindful about the way we live.
    I've always struggled with 'say no to invitations' (or anything, really).
    I'm working on it though.

    I can't wait to hear more!

  6. Shar mindful is the key, you got it right there. I used to fly by the seat of my pants and hated routine, but I eventually realised I needed routine to keep me sane. Mindful is the only way to keep the wheels from falling off!

    @Sonia, I can't wait to share it with you! :)

    @Flossy, I am the honoured one. What a collaboration, I am SO excited! xo

    @Noel, well you dropped by. I am very flattered. And yes, no going back. Moving forward with serious intent. HERE WE GO! I have to say you were very motivating after my bad day last week. I removed the sulks quick smart after you set me straight. Thank you.

    @Teresa, glad to hear you can relate (ie I am not the only one). My hope is that it impacts on someone else's life even in the smallest way. Then, I will be a happy Peggy. :)

  8. Good on you Peggy! It's a wonderful idea. I already learned something just by reading your sneak peek. I got an immediate vision of a family where the mother keeps strong boundaries not only around herself, but also around her family, for the good of the family. Also boundaries around not loosing her joy. Saying no to invitations.. that one stood out ot me because When ever I say yes to everything in a weekend I then feel frazzled if my kids say "can we go to the park?" & I have to say 'there's no time'. That streals my joy immediately.

  10. Thank you Lisa, I'm glad you like the manifesto. That is exactly what I strive for, solid boundaries to keep everyone happy and on track, including me. And keeping joy in tact is very essential! I enjoy saying no to invitations not because I don't wish to catch up with friends but because I then know I have quality time on my 2 days off to relax. And I work much better relaxed, frazzled and me don't go!

    Thanks so much for the feedback, love it! xo
