It’s a vicious circle. I know it’s important to care for yourself, I know it’s important to have some down time and I know it’s important to not always be thinking about work, about money and social statistics. So why do I feel so guilty when I’m not working?
I’ve thought about this a lot and I strongly believe it’s tied to being self-employed. You know that dream so many of us have? To work from home, to work our own hours, to decide our own holidays. You also get the beautiful feeling of constantly feel guilty when you aren’t working along with it. Go on holiday tomorrow, sure! Feel guilty because you’ve spent money on a holiday and also aren’t earning any money while on that trip -sure! (say goodbye to holiday pay). Oh and also because you are not finding any future work whilst away on this trip, you get to feel guilty about the future too – woop!

You’ll probably notice that for the past week I’ve posted very little on Instagram, only occasionally on Twitter, nowhere on our main YouTube channel and have failed at daily vlogging for nearly 2 weeks. So, where have I been? Aside from a weekend away in the Cotswolds I’ve been staring at my laptop screen attempting to find inspiration.
I need a new project. And this is something that I’ve constantly felt the need for within the last year, that’s the reason I started this blog, that’s the reason we started a new vlogging channel and that’s the reason I feel a little useless at the moment if I’m honest. But rather than staring at my laptop for another week and then punishing myself for the lack of work I’ve done, I thought I’d explain why I feel so lost and a need to start afresh.

If I could tell you how many people have recently said to me “Oh my god you’re so adult” i’d be pretty rich, well not that rich, i’d probably have a £20 note, but still, that’s enough to go an buy a new And Other Stories top and hopefully you get my point.
A lot of people have been telling me how ‘adult’ I am now, is it because I have a boyfriend? Is it because we live together? Is it because we bought a house together? Or is it because we have a puppy to look after? God knows.

I often get asked how hard my life is with only one hand, a waiter even once told me “You don’t understand how much you’re missing out on”. For some reason, the world assumes that my “disability” is something of a negative difference, it only holds me back. But I will hold up my hands (or hand) and swear on my life that I would never want two hands in my life, even if someone could magically make one appear tomorrow, it’s not something I’m interested in.
